Facing Challenges with Drones

The Australian agriculture industry is associated with many challenges: unpredictable weather patterns, crop disease, irrigation issues and pest control. Adding complexity to this, traditional methods of evaluating and managing farm environments can be highly complex, time-consuming and labour-intensive.

Drones now offer tailored aerial and enterprise solutions to deliver the best, non-invasive method of capturing crisp images which enable farmers to monitor crops, inspect irrigation equipment and ensure critical action is taken when required.

Apart from providing valuable plant and environmental data, drones can also be equipped with the capability to fertilise crops, eliminating the need for costly and time-intensive manual spraying or dusting.

These drone ‘turnkey’ agricultural solutions automate and optimise ‘across-farm’ management allowing farmers to make timely and informed decisions about property, plants, crops and stock.
