Drones For Agricultural Crop Surveillance

farming-portfolio1Explore the benefits that DFS agriculture drones (A.K.A. UAVs or UASs) can offer modern farmers and crop scouting.

Using drones for crop surveillance can drastically increase farm crop yields while minimizing the cost of walking the fields or airplane fly-over filming. Using our Imaging system, you can view composite video showing the health of your crops.

Utilize Advanced agricultural drone technology for the farming and agriculture industries with intuitive, actionable intelligence that drives costs down and improves crop performance. Reap the benefits of precise crop scouting from above.

 

The Benefits of Drones in Farming

  • Increase Yields
    • Find potentially yield limiting problems in a timely fashion.
  • Save Time
    • While all farmers know the value of scouting their crops few actually have time to cover the acres on foot.
  • Return on Investment
    • At an average of $2 per acre for a walking visual inspection or an aerial survey to take an image of crop fields, the ROI on the purchase of an aerial helicopter drone can be met quickly. In most operations, the ROI for our drones can be achieved in a crop season or less, leaving you owning a drone that reduces your operating costs and improves your crop yield by giving you the timely information you need for quick management intervention.
  • Ease of use
    • UAV products can be very complex to set-up and operate, but with our preset standards we allow new operators to have confidence in operating from the beginning.
  • Integrated GIS mapping
    • Draw field borders for flight pattern
  • Crop Health Imaging
    • Seeing the true health of your field in a color contrast allows you to see how much sunlight is being absorbed by the crop canopy.
    • Identify Crop Stress, Track Rough Plants & Detect Early Infestations
  • Failsafe – The Drone Flies Home
    • As an added safety net with the flip of switch your  Drone will return to its original takeoff location

With a drone or UAV you can capture highly accurate images of your fields, covering up to hundreds of acres in a single flight. Without the cost and hassle of manned services. At a far greater resolution than satellite imagery provides, even when there is cloud cover.

Agricultural drone technology

Drought analysis for farmers using drone technology

An unusually dry summer with drought-like conditions is making headlines across the East Coast and Midwest, and has farmers wondering what they can do now to prevent huge losses at harvest time.

While traditional methods of analyzing crop health like walking a field and manually inspecting plants can burn time and money, Detailed Aerial Solutions offers a simpler and much more accurate method: using drone technology.

“Drone imagery can create a mosaic map of farm fields to analyze drought stress conditions,” said John Ruggles, Director of Business Development at Detailed Aerial Solutions.

Those maps paired with tissue and soil samples can create a “prescription” that helps farmers care for the crops with greater precision, lessening lost time and lost product.
Even if drought conditions subside, excessive early dryness can lead to smaller fruit and lower yields; if a farmer can identify trouble areas down to precise field sections, it can have a significant economic benefits.

“Think about walking a field and collecting data by hand,” Ruggles said. “Compare that to flying a drone over an area; within a short amount of time, aerial imaging can be coupled with software that analyzes multiple conditions including crop stress and soil moisture.”

Knowing where to focus salvaging efforts like irrigation based on highly precise mapping and analysis of samples and conditions eliminates large amounts of wasted resources and saves money and time in the long run.

“Obtaining a bird’s-eye snapshot, coupled with advanced data analysis can nip big farming losses in the bud, even when Mother Nature isn’t cooperating,” Ruggles said.

 

Drone surveys a good fit for cotton growers

Agricultural drone surveys like those provided by Diverse Flight Solutions have been embraced by broadacre growers because of the massive advantages of aerial crop scouting over ground-based crop scouting in large fields like cotton. But are they really effective?

Although we see results for ourselves in the outcomes of surveys we perform for our customers, we also look to external research to validate what we’re seeing.
