PROJECT TITLE

    Press Enter

    The use of aerial photography in agriculture might eventually be considered as important a management tool like any other farm tool. Obtaining a general view of cropland from aloft by aerial photography could mean the difference between a successful harvest or a preventable crop failure.

    Precision Agriculture is now possible with drone enabled solutions. Whole field, in-season, current condition data is one of the most valuable pieces of data. Using thermal imaging we can help spot problems early and prevent a loss that could cost your farm thousands of dollars.

    Farms Using Aerial Photography Can Save Time And Money

    • Quick response time improves crop quality and yields.
    • Farms can create maps for inspection and seed planning.
    • Crop consultants/agronomists can be better informed.
    • Land data can be compared and developed across time.
    • Reduced workforce hours with time-saving drone technology.

    WHAT DRONE TECHNOLOGY  AND AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY CAN DO TO HELP FARMING INDUSTRIES

    CROP INSPECTION:

    Instead of inspecting your fields manually, aerial photography conducted with drones can save farmers time and money. Aerial Drone photography can provide detailed images to help a farmer prioritize and manage their crops.

    PLANT MONITORING: 

    Before drone technology, farmers relied on satellite imagery, and this had its limitations. Now with drones, aerial photography can be taken immediately and as many times as needed. The pilot uses software that programs the drone to fly in a grid formation, taking precise photography that provides organized data.

    SOIL AND FIELD ANALYSIS:

    Early analysis and detection can save a farmer so much money. A drone can produce 3-D maps that can help plan seed patterns and provide valuable information regarding irrigation and nitrogen level management.

    IRRIGATION:

    Can be monitored and inspected using thermal imaging drones. This technology can specify which parts of a field have too much or too little water.

    HEALTH ASSESSMENT:

    Density and health of crops and vegetation can be indicated such as; infections or spot bacteria. This detection can allow for early intervention and can save an entire harvest.

    VAST FIELDS AND UNPREDICTABLE WEATHER:

    can be a farmer’s biggest challenge. A speedy response can save a farmer money by preventing a crop loss and thousands of hours wasted on a workforce. Aerial photography can also be used to document insurance claims.

    Regardless if you fly the drone or hire a professional, there are a number of local, state, and federal safety rules that must be followed. The FAA carefully regulates any unmanned aerial vehicles.

    Items to consider when selecting a pilot to take aerial photography

    • The UAV pilot should have a current pilot’s license and completed the training courses.
    • The pilot or company he/she works for has insurance coverage in the event of and accident or other legal matter.
    • The contract should protect you from any claims related to the project including: personal injury, privacy or property damage.
    • The pilots UAV should be registered with the FAA. Anything weighing more than 0.5 pounds must be registered with the FAA. If you fail to register the drone, you could be fined up to $25,000.
    • The drone cannot be flown within a 5-mile radius of an airport terminal.
    • Generally, a drone for commercial use cannot be flown at more than 400 feet in altitude. The pilot of the drone must maintain visual contact at all times.
