How drones are improving Australia’s tipple
Analysing grape health
Purpose-developed drones for vignerons now have a field uniformity algorithm that helps quantify the relative density and health of the grapes.
Managing temperature and humidity
Drones can be fitted with sensors that measure vineyard temperature and humidity and then they communicate this ‘real time’ information to the wine grower. Based on drone data, soil moisture monitors can also measure water volume at different soil depths.
The vegetation index
Drone technology is designed to give the vigneron the ability to look for patterns and crop issues. to do this drones produce normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) imagery that goes well beyond the manual capacity of any other monitoring method.
Drones in Vignerons
Drones are now being used to give wine growers a clearer and more reliable picture of what is happening in the vineyard.
