UAV (Drones) For Agricultural Crop Scouting
Every once in a while, a technology comes along that changes the whole game. When it comes to increasing crop yields and streamlining efficiency in crop scouting, the use of unmanned aircraft is a definite “gamechanger.”
While this isn’t a brand new technology—the Japanese, for example have been using it to maximize yields for a few years—the U.S. and the FAA have finally opened the door for American farmers to reap the benefits of high-tech agricultural drones.
Through the use of high-tech sensors and near-infrared technology, DFS drones supply agricultural specialists with a treasure trove of information that they can use to maximize yields and profits, including:
- Crop Health
- Fertilizer Usage
- H2O/Drought Assessment & Monitoring
- Yield Monitoring
- Pre-Plant Field Assessment & Scouting
- Plant Stress Detection
- Plant Count
- Disease Detection
- Weed Detection
- Biomass Estimates
- Accurate Volumetric Data
- Piles, hills, holes etc: An accurate volume is assessed with a simple flyover
- Livestock Monitoring
- Monitor movement, location & patterns of livestock easily and inexpensively
The advantages of using DFS Drone technology are nearly limitless!
