What is Precision Agriculture?

Precision Agriculture is one of many modern farming practices that make production more efficient.  Utilizing Precision Agriculture, growers and soils work better, not harder.  Precision Ag, also known as “Site Specific Ag”, allows growers are able to manage large fields as they would small fields.  This allows the grower to reduce the misuse of applications, while increasing crop and farm efficiency.

 



What are the benefits to using UAV’s in Precision Agriculture?

There are many benefits to utilizing UAV’s in Precision Ag.  These benefits have helped growers to save a lot of money and time.  Imagine having the ability to see your entire field and locating problematic area’s by just looking at a map.  This can be accomplished through the use of UAV’s.  UAV’s have the ability to fly the field and collect the data, in turn providing you with an overall image that you can use to make a better decision on your crop management.  However, there is a three phase process that needs to take place before you have the finished product.  The first two is flight operations and collection.  This phase consist of configuring the aircraft and sensor, safely launching the aircraft, safely recovering the aircraft, and extracting the data from the aircraft.  This process can take anywhere from a couple of hours to several hours depending on how large a field you are covering.  The next phase is processing.  Processing consists of stitching the imagery collected with the flight log, both of which are extracted from the aircraft.  This process normally takes the longest.  From the data collected we are able to provide the information needed for you to make better decisions on your crop managing throughout your entire growing season.  The last phase is providing you with the finished product. 

What can we provide?   

Our information will help you to achieve a healthy crop throughout your growing season.  Research has shown that this information has helped to increase crop yields by 10% and has helped the growers save money on applications.  We are able to provide a multitude of information with our ultra-high resolution sensors.  Listed below are some of the products we are able to provide:

·         NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) or Crop Health Assessment

·         Hydrology Map

·         Contour Map

·         Digital Elevation Model

·         Topography Map

·         Bare Ground Assessments

·         Weed Assessments

·         Crop Health Monitoring

·         Irrigation Equipment Monitoring

·         Many Other Products
