Ecology is a major component in managing agriculture and vegetation. Using drones in a wildlife control capacity offers you an effective method of identifying animals. Drone agricultural applications can provide farmers and landowners with a comprehensive scan of their fields, so they’ll be left with accurate data about the wildlife within them.
Using a drone provides a fast, safe, effective and precise report of wildlife, minimising harm and death to animals, especially those that hide when they sense danger and can be killed in mowing and harvesting operations.
Drone applications optimise your crop production through aerial capabilities that scan, analyse and identify your fields rapidly. Many drones take multispectral or hyperspectral pictures of your field which we then use to develop 3D models that convey the state, health and concerns of your crop and field.
After collecting information, drone technology transforms the data through algorithms to determine critical information that helps to:
- Optimise irrigation
- Organise nitrogen levels
- Detect areas that are malnourished and require care
- Measure plant growth, crop numbers and thickness
- Detect diseases early for appropriate treatment before they can be seen with the naked eye
- Detect parasites that may harm your crop
There are many different drone applications for agriculture, including aerial spraying which offers the most precise spraying application for crop treatment available today. Agricultural drone applications can be programmed to adjust the amount of chemical, optimising treatment in each area. They use radars to follow the boundaries of your field, avoid obstacles and follow terrain to ensure they maintain their path over your crops.
Agricultural drone spraying has many features that transcend traditional crop spraying. They can use AI to detect fruit trees, model the area and create 3D maps to plan operations accurately and they can treat areas of up to 10 hectares per hour with a spray rate of 4.8 litres per minute.
