A Field can be analysed in 12 minutes
Walking a field to determine areas for increased seed or nutrients used to take an hour or more and the results were sometimes as patchy as the field itself.
By deploying a drone a field can be photographed in as little as little as 12 minutes and then after processing the high resolution imagery the results can then be analysed to highlight areas of concern.
By flying at 400 feet over a controlled route plan images can be as detailed as five centimetres per pixel and once all imagery is stitched together to produce a detailed aerial view much clearer than satellite imagery.
I attended a Grow Agri event held at Pershore College sponsored by the European Union Development Fund with speakers including Drone Ag. The purpose of Grow Agri is to promote innovation and entrepreneurship by encouraging growth and diversification into the Agri-Tech sector through a combination of seminars and grant funding.
Agri-Tech is strategically important for the growth of the UK economy and promotes the development of processes and services to allow the agriculture sector to transition into a modern technology enabled sector to meet future demands.
