Drone offers end-to-end agriculture solutions for efficient crop management
March 14, 2019, PARIS, France - Parrot, the leading European drone group, has launched the second generation model of its Parrot Bluegrass Fields, a fully integrated, easy-to-fly drone solution designed specifically for crop mapping and scouting to allow agriculture professionals take actionable steps to boost the quality of their crops and maximize yields.
"Parrot Bluegrass Fields delivers a robust mix of cutting-edge hardware technologies and exciting software solutions to give agriculture professionals everything they need to improve crop management capabilities," said Greg Crutsinger, founder of Scholar Farms. "One of the most unique things about Parrot Bluegrass Fields is its ability to capture and send imagery to a Wi-Fi enabled device while in flight for real-time multispectral mapping, which means users have a finished product by the time the drone lands instead of waiting hours for the data to process. That's a nice feature."
Parrot Bluegrass Fields retails for $4,500 and is currently available at Drone Nerds and other authorized Parrot retail partners, including DSLRPros, Dronefly, B&H, Adorama and Scorpion Drones. Purchase of Parrot Bluegrass Fields includes one full year of access to both the ParrotFields mobile app and Pix4Dfields desktop and cloud software, which allows for further in depth analysis of crop data—including the ability to create index maps for crop performance analysis and prescription maps that can be easily exported to tractor and Farm Management Information Systems. The unit also ships with one Parrot Skycontroller 2 and corresponding charger, three batteries, one battery charger, four spare propellers and a backpack for easy, safe portability.
