eBee Ag
Drone for Agriculture

Map your crops in minutes

Weed infestations, pest pressures, nutritional management; you’ve got a lot on your hands when it comes to crop health, and never enough time to do it all.  With the senseFly eBee Ag drone for agriculture, you can get a full assessment of your farm and crops faster than traditional field scouting.

We’ve developed eBee Ag to be a reliable, affordable solution to help farmers, agronomists and service providers map and monitor crops quickly and easily. The eBee Ag and its drone camera deliver timely plant health insights with accuracy and efficiency that complements your precision agriculture workflows. Together, they’re powerful tools for making better decisions, growing healthier, higher-yielding crops and earning greater profit margins.

Improve Your Crop Yields

With its dual-purpose Duet M camera, eBee Ag captures accurate RGB and multispectral data from the sky to help you make better decisions on the ground. Regularly collecting multispectral data when crop scouting is critical to effectively monitor plant health, optimize inputs use and help catch early indicators of pests, diseases and weed infestations that threaten crop yields.

eBee Ag also features available Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) functionality for greater mapping precision. With its available RTK, the agriculture drone can achieve absolute accuracy down to 2.5 cm (1.0 in) with its RGB camera. Highly-accurate vegetative index maps allow you to understand every acre while managing problematic areas field-wide – before they impact profits.

Simplify Workflows

Farms and fields vary in size and shape, but eBee Ag makes crop scouting and monitoring fast and easy. It also comes with our new eBee X series backpack, which is a smart and durable way to carry your senseFly drone (and more) out to the field and back.

From the field or office, simply use the included eMotion flight planning software to create your mission. Once launched, the eBee Ag drone automatically collects aerial data and lands at the designated landing point. The data outputs are fully compatible with all major farm management information software (FMIS) and precision agriculture equipment, which further streamlines farming workflows. Growers can create variable rate prescription maps to accurately apply inputs where they’re needed most— all while protecting your investment, resources and crop yield.

Reduce Operating Costs

Whether you manage a single farm, are a member of a cooperative or work as an agriculture service provider, you know that monitoring fields takes time and resources. Thankfully, eBee Ag helps spot and solve inefficiencies encountered in the field. Designed to operate across extreme environments worldwide, eBee Ag is built to meet the high demands of commercial agriculture and is suited for intensive and repeated crop mapping missions. Producers now have access to more accurate field and crop assessments, soil analysis and data that allows for smarter scouting and decision-making.

Equipped with its standard battery, eBee Ag is capable of up to 45-minutes of flight. An available endurance battery increases flight times up to 55 minutes—allowing the drone to cover more than 160 hectares (395 acres) in a single flight and save precious time and money when compared with conventional crop scouting. In this way, you can redirect your efforts to other important tasks and manage operational resources with greater efficiency.

What our customers say

"There are a lot of $5,000 UAVs available, but they don't fly themselves so they're basically fancy remote controlled helicopters. With the senseFly eBee Ag you get a complete solution—take a couple minutes to plan a mission, launch it by hand (no catapults), and the eBee does the rest. It flies, takes images, figures out the wind and lands right where you want it to. There’s nothing more portable, powerful and easy to use."

Todd Golly

Partner, Golly Farms, United States

"The eBee Ag is our main tool for precision agriculture. We have found it a remarkable tool for identifying issues within crops before problems become too severe. When the results from the eBee Ag are coupled with targeted soil testing, exceptionally accurate prescriptions can be made. The eBee’s simplicity and quick results are what have made it so valuable to us."

James O'Neill

Director, Signpost Surveys, Ireland

"Thanks to the eBee's multispectral maps we have managed to reduce our operational and logistical costs by 30%, through being able to define different sugarcane harvest zones based on the crop's quality in different regions. That work resulted in an increase of 15% in the value of the product we sold to our customers."
