Hi Tech Partnership
Image Capture: We fly low to the ground and capture very high-resolution imagery at specific wavelengths that are meaningful for
revealing plant physiological status
Processing: We use various image processing techniques to generate highly accurate data on every plant in the field.
Scientific Analysis : We use biological and mathematical modeling to correlate this data to physical plant properties (plant water stress, leaf nitrogen content)
I asked about the costs. We have different packages that we provide for different growers. We take a very consultative approach so based on your problems we might prescribe two totally different programs. Each flyover costs in a sense low dollars per flyover and all we need are the crop maps, locations and then we get going. We provide ongoing service where we don’t just give the data but we also work with the farmer to operationalize it. We give them thoughts about what we might see in the images and also how some other farmers might be using the data to help detect diseases or make variable-rate applications of different inputs. We are a partnership where we work hand-in-hand with the grower.
