Efficiency and Inventory
Fixed wing drones in agriculture are used to survey large plantations to check inventory and ensure the best crop health, achieving the highest yields.
With the world population consuming more agricultural products for food, fuel and textiles, precision agriculture has never been more critical. Fixed wing drones are the perfect tool to survey large crop acreage for pests, deficiencies and damages. Using multi-spectral drone imagery, multiple layers of vegetation indicies can be generated in order to ensure that crop yields are at a maximum.
Capturing inventory data in forestry applications can certainly be done with UAVs with large area capability. With drone data, stockholders can more accurately know the amount of timber available by using point cloud data to measure treas per acre as well as the volume of trees in an area.
