Imagine being a farmer in the 21st century, where ‘precision agriculture’ practices offer a new approach to crop management, one that wrings out waste and uses data to maximise crop yields, and thus profits. As in other industries, technology is transforming the landscape of farming. Drones are an excellent way to gather detailed information about every square inch of a field.
Agribotix, a pioneer in turnkey drone data collection and analysis services, launched its new cloud-based Bring Your Own Drone data processing solution. It is available to anyone using any drone for agricultural data collection, anywhere in the world. The on-demand service processes drone-collected data and returns actionable recommendations.
Paul Hoff, the company’s CEO, said, "During our first year flying our own drones over crops, we discovered that drone pilots need a simple way to produce reports that are useful to a farmer. This includes everything from an overhead view of a field used to spot problem areas, to a zone map for precise fertiliser application. We’ve developed a solution that addresses these needs and more. The resulting reports can be imported into virtually any farm data management system."
"Agricultural drone pilots don’t want to be software experts; they want to focus on the business of producing reports for their customers that maximise crop yields and improve their bottom line. We give them a very high level of customer service and fast turnaround so that they can act quickly, before conditions change," he further informed.
Agribotix is a US based drone-enabled software company that provides advanced analysis for global agricultural applications.
