The applications of drones are expanding with each passing minute and agriculture is no exception. The technology of unmanned aircrafts can be used for collecting valuable information in the agriculture sector, which can be used to avoid damage caused by pest infestation.
The factor that makes drones the best option for this purpose is the cost effectiveness of these unmanned devices. The cheaper cost as compared to airplanes and helicopters makes UAVs the optimum choice for carrying out valuable research which can help in the enhancement of production.
It has been predicted that the agriculture sector will be responsible for nearly 80 percent of the commercial market for drones. This is because drones can be that defining piece of technology which enables farmers to make better decisions regarding the management of their farms.
Drones For Agricultural Crop Surveillanceimage placeholder
Using drones for crop surveillance can drastically increase farm crop yields while minimizing the cost of walking the fields or airplane fly-over filming. Using our A1 HD X8 FLIR THERMAL DATA LINK + GROUND STATION, you can view composite video showing the health of your crops.
The Benefits of Drones in Farming
Find potentially yield limiting problems in a timely fashion.
While all farmers know the value of scouting their crops few actually have time to cover the acres on foot.
Return on Investment
At an average of $2 per acre for a walking visual inspection or an aerial survey to take an image of crop fields, the ROI on the purchase of an aerial helicopter drone can be met quickly. In most operations, the ROI for our drones can be achieved in a crop season or less, leaving you owning a drone that reduces your operating costs and improves your crop yield by giving you the timely information you need for quick management intervention.
Ease of use
UAV products can be very complex to set-up and operate, but with our preset standards we allow new operators to have confidence in operating from the beginning.

Crop Health Imaging
Seeing the true health of your field in a color contrast allows you to see how much sunlight is being absorbed by the crop canopy.
