drones for precision agriculture

taking action with aerial imagery

  • Improve irrigation efficiency
  • check
    Optimize fertilization plans
  • Forecast yields
  • check
    Identify plants to be culled
  • Apply pesticides precisely
  • Efficiently deploy labor

For generations farmers have walked their fields investigating crops manually for signs of stress or disease. Irrigation management, crop inspection, spraying, this traditional, labor intensive method is time consuming and can be difficult when crop canopies thicken. With Drone technology, farmers can evaluate their crops at scale while simultaneously creating crop maps that help them manage crops and time better.

Aerial thermal imaging has also become an important tool for crop management. It is a non-invasive way to monitor nurseries and greenhouses and even detect plant diseases. Aerial assessments and data gathering within the agricultural sector provides key information like: plant vigor, plant stress, plant counts, field uniformity, plant height among other variables. This information can be used to predict, the need for fertilizer inputs, irrigation modifications, peak harvest, overall crop health and ultimately crop yield/value. Industrial farmers have been using these technologies for years since they allow for better business decisions.

how agricultural drones work

Scout
ConnexiCore UAVs fly to count crops, identify crop stress, and forecast yields.

Detect
Review analyzed flight imagery with our experts, then share with your agronomist and staff.

Implement
Navigate directly to problem areas, ground-truth, and apply treatment as your team determines.

plant vigor assessment & identification

Our vigor assessment isolates areas where vegetation is lacking, or experiencing some form of stress. Using this imagery growers can identify areas requiring action and create a treatment plan, resulting in reduced input costs and increased yields.

  • Quickly identify area of stress
  • Ground-truth with your agronomist
  • Convert agronomist diagnosis into an action plan

flight summary reports

Review key findings and areas of interest in a comprehensive flight summary report. Compare reports from multiple flights to monitor progress and share improvements with landowners, lenders, insurance providers and more.
