Farmers are utilizing drone technology as a way of maximizing their yields and keeping expenses as low as possible. Specialized drones can be used for aerial application of pesticides and fertilizers, but more importantly, their imaging capabilities are what is causing the excitement. According to the Southwest Farm Press, drones are being used to:
- Count plants
- Gauge plant size
- Conduct surveys to determine plot statistics
- Crop height and density
- Determine whether irrigation is being used effectively
Colibri’s drones are compact, agile, easily repositioned from field to field and have imaging systems that produce sharp, accurate images.
