Drone Precision Agriculture Services
A highly effective method to monitor irrigation is infrared imaging. Thermal, multi-spectral, and high resolution RGB all at a synchronized data capture gives farmers valuable crop health data. Using manned or unmanned aircraft depending on the scope of your project.
Water stress can be prevented in early stages to prevent crop damage. We are able to survey very large acreage farms and deliver thermographic, orthorectified maps. Farmers are able to view thermal geographic and trending data using our software MapTemp. Setting an isotherm in MapTemp will assist you in locating excessive irrigation because these areas usually appear noticeable cooler than the rest of the field.
Aerial Thermal Imaging specializes in Thermal Precision Agriculture Services using both manned and unmanned aircraft.
We also assist in locating areas low in nutrients but also help monitor the effects of fertilizer applications throughout the season and determine if, when, and where a new application is needed with a changed fertilizer management. Phenotyping your crops to understand how different breeds react to certain environments and modify desirable traits in order to improve yield.
Thermal and multi-spectral imagery collected and combined, can identify diseases before symptoms are visible.
High-quality multi spectral imagery provides advanced field scouting capabilities. In one flight, it is possible to collect accurate and geotagged information of a problem, making easy to assess the situation and determine the appropriate intervention
Collecting many bands of infrared allows our team to include elevation data in our maps. A digital elevation models (DEM) provides key data into water management, land uses and terrain elevation.

Drone Precision Farming
Could drones help farmers grow better crops?
Yes, drones assist farmers with delivering healthier, increased crop yield.
Here’s how Drones are helping farmers grow better crops:
Agriculture drones inform farmers on soil conditions
Smart farming is data-driven, enabling farmers to take action based on accurate information on soil conditions.
Drones are used for detecting and treating areas with infections and pests
Drones can detect field areas inflicted by weeds and pests, allowing farmers to use the data to decide on the exact amounts of chemicals needed
Drones are used for crop surveillance and livestock monitoring
Drones are used for agriculture mapping so that farmers can stay updated on the health of plants. Furthermore, agricultural drones can be also be used for livestock counts.
Drones are used for Water Conservation and Fire Detection
Remote Sensing in Agriculture include- Crop identification, water stress detection, irrigation control, turf care for golf courses and ball fields, forestry management and much more.
What are the Benefits of Agricultural Drones?
1.) Drones deliver increased farming productivity
Giving growers the ability to quickly and easily analyze entire fields at once has many advantages
2.) Drones assist with adaptation to climate changes
Information gathered by the drones can help farmers perfect the level of water in the field to create peak growing conditions
3.) Drones reduce pollution
Through detailed crop insight and increased efficiency, drones reduce the amount of pesticides released into the environment
Why are Drones Important in Agriculture?
Drones enable farmers to make better decisions regarding their crops through detailed insights about crops and crop placement, irrigation, water stress, pests and the climate.
Thermal, multi-spectral, and high resolution RGB all at a synchronized data capture gives farmers valuable crop health data.
What is Precision Agriculture?
Precision Agriculture is the process of implementing a farm management process that uses information technology (IT) to improve plant performance and increase crop yield through optimizing irrigation and crop placement.
How are Drones used for Farming?
1.) Agricultural Mapping
Agricultural mapping plays a vital role in monitoring and management of soil and irrigation of any given farm land, as well as the management and control of all farm resources.
2.) Drones help farmers optimize the of use seeds, fertilizers, water, and pesticides more efficiently.
Drones allows farmers to timely protect their crops from pests, save time for crop scouting, reduce overall cost in production, and secure quality crops in high yield.
