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.
How drones are improving Australian agricultural outcomes
If you are operating in the agricultural industry and not engaging drone technology, you need to come and talk to us.
Plant counting and yield production
Precision drone technology allows farmers to generate more accurate plant and crop counts and better forecast yields based on accurate survey data
Crop health analysis and paddock performance
Drones can provide rapid real time statistics on crop coverage, health, height, paddock conditions and accurately assess growth and vegetation health.
Drone technology can rapidly identify areas in dams that are low, stagnate or have poor drainage or are not suitable for growing or watering stock. With the right drone technology, this can even be managed beyond the drone pilot’s visual line of site (BVLOS).
Perfect for smaller, hard to access crop applications, drones can be mounted with measured spraying equipment that can accurately and efficiently dispense herbicide or pesticide.
Drones in Agriculture
Smart agricultural operations are increasingly engaging drone and drone data solutions to automate and optimise ‘across-farm’ management.
