Aerial surveys and analyses of farmland is an excellent way to guage the quality of your crop and chemical deficiencies. We cover every square inch of your farm land and provide an extensive range of analytical analyses for all your agro-assessment needs.
CROP MAPPING 2D and 3D
The first step in providing this actionable intelligence for farmers is to produce crop health maps that pinpoint areas of potential yield loss. The way to do this is by measuring the amount of biomass or live green vegetation in the crops. Near-infrared (NIR) sensors can detect vegetation levels based on the amount of light reflected off the leaves — the higher the biomass content, the more light that’s reflected. Drones startups starting measuring these vegetation levels using the Normalized Differentiation Vegetation Index (NDVI), a simple graphical indicator for these measurements, to produce what are commonly called NDVI maps. These maps show crop health through colors, which vary from bright green for areas with most vegetation to red for the least healthy areas.
