AGRICULTURE

Precision agriculture is a term used to define the use of advanced ground and aerial sensors to monitor crop health and identify areas for targeted attention with fertilizer, irrigation and or pesticides. The use of advanced data collection and analysis processes to service crops efficiently can offer reduced cost in terms of materials and manpower and increased crop yield. Both fixed-wing and multi-rotor solutions outfitted with Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) sensors can be used to visually assess the health of crops by measuring the reflected solar radiation which is directly proportional to the chlorophyll content of the plant. Several small, lightweight sensors are available and AGRIIMAGE can provide both fixed-wing and multi-rotor solutions outfitted with both NDVI and electro-optical sensors to support both crop health and survey/mapping projects.
