A great way to get a snapshot of the health of your crop.
Infrared imagery has always been one of the best ways to see what’s really going on in your fields. The bird’s eye view, plus the fact that infrared shows things the human eye can’t see, combine to create a valuable tool for the producer.
Whether it’s mapping nutrient deficiencies, spotting insect pressure, or creating a zone map for variable rate applications, aerial imagery is a great way to get a snapshot of the health of your crop. Our rapid response, analysis, and information delivery is perfect for in-season management or damage claims.
We work with a team of experienced imaging pilots to provide almost real time images to our grower customers. Whether it’s corn, soybeans, cotton, potatoes, rice, wheat, or specialty crops we can deliver infrared images within a day or two after they are taken. As variable rate (VR) application and VR seeding has evolved, the need for VR ‘zone’ maps has increased. So we also offer simplified zone maps derived from the infrared image. These maps divide your field into 3-5 zones that show the weakest to the strongest parts of the field. We can provide a digital version of this zone map that is compatible with Deere, Case IH, and aerial variable rate systems.
On a regional scale, we can provide county level yield estimates and logistical requirements for the ag industry. Assessment of impacts from weather events or energy/urban development can be quantified and mapped.
