Why Use Agriculture Drones?

Precision technology has driven the farming revolution in recent years. Monitoring crops from the sky using agricultural drones looks set to drive the next, as agronomists, agricultural engineers and farmers turn to UAVs (or UAS) to gain more efficient crop insights and to more accurately plan and manage their operations.

Applications

Durable senseFly drone technology adds value throughout the growing season, from monitoring plant emergence right through to pre-harvest yield prediction and drainage planning for the next season.

Durable senseFly drone technology adds value throughout the growing season, from emergency and early growth assessments through to pre-harvest yield prediction.

"When used as a tool to scout more efficiently and reduce fertiliser waste, we’ve found that UAVs can create an ROI of around $9 per acre. They allow us to concentrate our scouting efforts in the less healthy areas of the field, find the cause of crop stress and make a treatment before the crop stress translates to yield loss."
