Crop Imaging

'' Aerial imagery - View from Above ''

ndviexp

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.

Crop Imaging Options

Satellite based Imaging

Satellite images allow to monitor crops on key dates supporting field work by the production team and directing it to areas that require immediate attention. Images can be taken every 16 days during the growing season (cloud dependant).

Drone based Imaging

CROP WATCH AFRICA provides drone based NDVI Imaging services to the agriculture industry. Our ability to make frequent flights means that images can be taken across different dates to see how a crop has changed over time. Change detection images allow a crop manager to quickly determine if the crop is growing uniformly or if problems exist that are causing the vegetation stress.
