Agricultural industrialization and innovation have shifted and grown since day dot. People were replaced with tractors, tractors replaced by planes and now, the latest in agriculture: Drones.
Over the last few years, drones have begun to take flight in agriculture – and it’s no wonder. As advancements in technology continue making its way into farming practices, farmers today are looking to drones to better their outcomes.
First and foremost, drone technology offers incredible advantages over other overhead imagery be that: satellites, manned aircraft (typically used in the industry), cranes or taking photos on foot. Needless to say, the use of drones is far more cost-effective and their ability to fly low to the ground, under cloud cover, is a game-changer for the farming industry.
Beyond imagery, drones are providing opportunities to assess germination, determine plant density and assist farmers as to whether they should replant particular parts or a whole section of their farmland. Crop surveying without physically entering a plot of land, paddock or crop is something very new to farming and changing the way farmers can approach their day-to-day work.
Weather previously played a major role in determining how farmers approach surveying plots of land. If the weather was not favourable, it could potentially delay or completely bring the job at hand to a halt. Now, that’s no longer a reality.
This ability to look over farmland will save farmers hours and overcome major constraints such as access to land and/or areas drenched in water. These images can also be used to monitor and evaluate trials or seasonal effects on different varieties. This ability to undertake such monitoring has never been so accessible for farmers until the introduction of drone technology.
Agricultural drone technology is creating a level and ability to farm like never before. Farmers around the world are adapting to drone availability – anything from mapping, spraying, seeding and pest control.
Our Agriculture team is experienced in providing specialised solutions to those looking for precise drone services to ensure their land is looked after. We aim to increase efficiency across all aspects of agriculture and ensure your end product is better than it was previously. Farming isn’t easy. It never has been and never will be. But with the help of our technology, we endeavour to make your day just that little bit more seamless and stress-free.
Sit back and watch as our drones do all the heavy lifting and watch your crops grow.
