Maximize Yields From Your Crops
Drones can be used to quickly tell you useful, actionable information about your crops. They help you maximize yields by allowing you to easily track changes in crop health, estimate crop yields, optimize variable rate prescriptions, plan drainage and irrigation repairs, generate accurate VARI and NDVI data, and detect infestations of pests and fungi before they spread. On a more basic level they grant you a bird’s-eye view of your crop which allows you to see plant variations and patterns indistinguishable at ground level.
Like satellite remote sensing, they can make use of normal RGB optical cameras, infrared cameras, and multi-spectral cameras to create precise NDVI data about plant health. Unlike both manned aircraft and satellites, drones are affordable, they are able to give you data whenever you need it, and they are autonomous enough to allow even inexperienced operators to generate meaningful results.
If you are a farmer, agronomist, or someone else who wants to get started using drones for agricultural purposes in the United Kingdom, there are two different ways to go about it. One way is to purchase the drone and equipment, get your remote pilot certification, and operate it yourself. The other is to hire a professional drone pilot to do all the work and deliver the information you’re looking for. ABJ Drones is able to assist you every step of the way no matter which path you choose. We can recommend and provide all the hardware you need as well as both preparation for your remote pilot certificate and hands on training. We also have a nationwide pilot network of professionals ready to assist you at any time.
