The AgDrone System provides unparalleled access to high resolution aerial information that can be acquired anytime, anywhere. With HoneyComb Farm, our cloud-based data services, maintaining and evaluating information is easy and always accessible. Systems have been deployed across a range of use cases including crop management, land surveying, insurance claims, crop forecasting, and environmental monitoring, to name a few.

Crop Management

  • Establish field zones during season
  • Guide field scouting, and save time
  • Identify the onset of pest or disease
  • Monitor impact of pesticide application
  • Evaluate and review irrigation practices
  • Identify field changes throughout season
  • See multiple seasons of data and review

Land Surveying

  • Verify land condition and generate maps
  • Estimate value based on historical data
  • Plan new development with imagery
  • Visually identify invasive plant species
  • Measure organic/non-organic buffers
  • Document land conservation practices
  • Regularly monitor land conditions

Yield Forecasting

  • Estimate stand density and coverage
  • Identify stages of growth and fruiting
  • Monitor growth rates during the season
  • Use NDVI to identify vigorous areas
  • In some cases, estimate vegetable/fruit

Insurance Monitoring

  • Estimate weather related crop damage
  • Measure impacted areas and losses
  • Quickly gather proof of damage
  • Reduce uncertainty in the claim process
  • Verify replanting and report compliance
