Plant breeding has been going on for 10,000 years but technology -unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), robots, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning -is revolutionizing the practice.
Drones are becoming technically sophisticated, enabling the use of multi-sensor arrays, that can operate either singularly or in unison, to collect a wide range of data for later analysis.
A smart battery is a rechargeable battery that is equipped with a battery management system (BMS). Packet Digital and Vertical Partners West recently developed an intelligent battery management system for the Venom Commercial Series of drone power products.
AeroVironment Collaborates with REIN's DroneInsurance.com to Offer Commercial Drone Insurance Solutions for Quantix™ Hybrid Drone
AeroVironment's Quantix™, an innovative and powerfully simple to use drone delivering real-time actionable intelligence, can now be covered through DroneInsurance.com's first-of-its-kind drone insurance platform, offering 24/7 ground and usage-based flight coverage options.
To improve the soil water removal efficiency of drained farmland, and thereby increase crop yields, new drain lines are often installed between pre-existing drain lines. This requires accurate maps of the drainage pipe that is already in place.
Smart Farming is a capital-effective and hi-tech system of growing food cleanly and making it sustainable for people. It is an application of modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into agriculture.
Survey of Farmers Highlights New Risks and Opportunities in Expanding Drone Market
This technology greatly empowers farmers and ranchers by minimizing cost, energy use, and most importantly time in much sophisticated way than ever before. It could be a promising technology in agriculture and ranch management for many farmers and ranchers
Farmers can now obtain a whole-field plant count from a single drone flight
Field health images can be compared with other important data layers, such as yield, to give farmers a deeper understanding of crop performance that they can use as they plan for the next season.
Scott Willis for WAER: It goes without saying that agriculture is heavily dependent on the weather, and nature. So when Beak and Skiff partner Peter Fleckenstein heard of a way to eliminate some of that uncertainty, he jumped at the chance.
Black Swift Technologies and NASA Partner to Push Agricultural Drone Technology Beyond NDVI and NDRE (Red Edge)
Next-Generation UAS-Borne Sensors Proving More Effective at Vegetation Health and Growth Monitoring Than Existing Alternatives
ABI Research gives comparatively conservative estimates at the valuation of the drone-ag market for many reasons, including an increasingly consolidated market, and the actual needs of the farming industry
As far as drones have evolved over the years, many consumer models still feature a max flight time of around 20 minutes. Some offer as little as five minutes. This fallback can be annoying to those wanting to fly longer than a third of an hour
Sentera's latest offering will help ag professionals collect more uniform normalized difference vegetative index (NDVI) or normalized difference red edge (NDRE) data across a wider range of operating and environmental conditions.
