Precision agriculture is no longer a new term in crop production. It is now a widely accepted practice. Aerial imagery is a key component in utilizing precision agriculture techniques for the management of farmland.
Imagine a farm. Somewhere, the soil is too wet or too dry. Somewhere, a fungus or other pathogen is starting to take hold. Somewhere, the crop needs fertilizer or insecticide. It’s difficult to say where without walking every square foot of the farm. And even if you did take that walk, you’d need x-ray vision to tell you exactly which healthy-looking plant is about to get sick and turn yellow.
Imagery does not replace the need for crop scouting. Instead, it directs growers to areas of the field that require ground truthing.
Different Crop Imaging options are available. CROP WATCH AFRICA offers Drone based or Satellite Imaging. Contact us for more information.
