In Season Aerial Imagery
In-season aerial imagery provides a high resolution image (one meter resolution) of the crop to help identify problem areas. Aerial imagery allows us to take better advantage of available weather patterns compared to satellite imagery. The imagery utilizes near infrared (NIR) technology which is very sensitive to subtle plant health differences. One of the most important maps we can provide from this technology is a NDVI (Normalized Vegetative Index) map, which enhances the plant health differences.
- Precise and efficient crop scouting
- See the whole field
- Quick turnaround
- Help with zone management creation and geo-referenced soil sampling
- Can help verify other layers of information (EC, pH, Yield)
- Help plan your tissue testing
- Make a VRT Nitrogen prescription
- Help verify your management strategy (Is what you’re doing, working?)
- Find mechanical errors
- NH3 plugged knives
- Cultivation issues etc.
- Uneven spreading of residue
- Early yield predictor (V8 – V12 Corn or Feekes 4 - Jointing Wheat)
