Crop health monitoring
Crop science is the discipline that deals with the management of crops or animals to facilitate economical production. This involves crop rotation, irrigation, soil science and weed/pest control
The management of crop science encompasses the regular inspection of crops or stock, measurement of irrigation requirements and monitoring of climatological aspects. To conduct proper monitoring, agronomists take samples manually or employ 3D measurement tools.
Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) can improve crop science management by providing aerial camera shots, multispectral measurement and remote sensing equipment all at once. UAS have versatile payload platforms, can cover large surfaces, are easy to operate and provide hard copy data that can be inputted instantaneously. As a result, UAS can improve the quality of your production processes whilst lowering the crop management costs.
