Revolutionizing Agriculture with Drone Powered Solutions
Drone technology has left a long-lasting impact on the Agriculture industry of India and its efficiency. We present drone-powered solutions to farmers to increase productivity in crop monitoring to planting, Livestock Management, Pesticide Spraying, Crop Stress identification, Treatment Planning, Plant Growth Monitoring, Precision Farming, Scouting and much more.
We use high-tech Aerial Surveying drones equipped with advanced sensors, such as RGB and Multispectral Sensors , to procure precise data. Drones such as DJI Inspire 2 accumulate high-resolution crop data to identify any issues with the crops and notify them for immediate action before damage occurs. Geo-tagging Aerial Images provide valuable information that reduces cost and boosts yield by a significant percentage.
Advanced drone technology and Machine Learning for Precision Agriculture result in improved crop yields and profitability. Correspondingly, lower levels of standard input from the farmers are required to grow crops and maintain land, water, fertilizer, herbicides, and insecticides.
We combine UAV Aerial Imagery with Machine Learning systems for Crop yield forecasts, accurate crop count, crop emergence analysis, irrigation monitoring, crop health, crop damage assessment, field soil analysis, etc. High-quality drone data and Photogrammetry guard crops to guarantee productivity and to equip farmers with all benefits accessible.
We can help with
Crop Health & Stress Analysis
Our top-notch drones furnished with Multispectral camera sensors can identify disease and stress in the initial stages, sometimes before it is even evident from the ground or with standard color cameras. Our drone surveys also provide real-time imagery of the fields for precision agriculture. The data obtained is processed and analyzed during Irrigation Monitoring, Corp Health Monitoring, and other fundamental elements to encourage farmers to focus on treatment plans.

Irrigation Monitoring and Planning
Our drones equipped with Thermal Cameras and Remote Sensing capabilities can help defeat irrigation issues, or areas receiving little or too much moisture. The topography of fields from RGB Imagery assists farmers to position and segregate the crops to maximize drainage, follow natural land runoff, and to avoid water-logging. With our services, farmers will be able to adapt to different environments comfortably.

Crop Damage Assessment
Our experienced drone pilots can obtain high-resolution data that can provide vital information for measuring and documenting damage to crops from unforeseen factors such as floods, fires, pests, weather events, etc. Data from drones with remote sensing capabilities and Photogrammetry acts as evidence for farmers or government authorities to claim crop insurance or to obtain an estimate accordingly. Data retrieved from advanced sensors represented as 2D or 3D Orthomosaics help farmers understand and find novel alternatives to increase crop yields and reduce crop damage simultaneously.

Crop Count & Plant Emergence Analysis
With our drones' high-resolution data coupled with Machine Learning algorithms, we can efficiently present production information to track crop emergence, drive replanting decisions, and help predict yield. Data obtained with premium UAVs and Photogrammetry , our system yields 97% accuracy in its output. We represent these as 2D Orthomosaics for an in-depth understanding.
Field Soil Analysis
The soil quality of crops can either make or break a farmer's productivity. Soil Analysis is a crucial step to be taken by farmers during the crop-cycle. Our drones, such as the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, provide real-time and precise analysis of soil's overall health. Through Precision Agriculture, one can discern issues surrounding soil quality, nutrient management, or dead soil zones. This data supports farmers in determining the most effective farming patterns of planting, managing crops, and soil. Not to mention, field soil analysis also increases the safety and health of workers.
Chemicals to kill pests and unwanted plants such as weeds and spraying pesticides is crucial for maintaining crop health. Drones fitted with pesticide spraying equipment function more efficiently and for a fraction of the cost compared to manual spraying. Not only are we achieving Precision Agriculture by saving time and labor costs significantly, but we are also protecting farmers from coming into contact with various toxic chemicals.
Deliverables We Offer
Digital surface model (DSM)
Digital Surface Models (DSMs) are Digital Models embodying elevations of the field and vegetation in agriculture. They are used for various purposes such as irrigation planning, water flow analysis, and crop optimization based on slope direction. Our drones equipped with low-altitude remote sensing (LARS) cameras can acquire RGB images in a high spatial resolution superior to the data obtained through traditional means.
Example of Vegetation Index Map
Maturity indices decide when a crop should be harvested and ensure that satisfactory consumption meets the consumer. Vegetation indices such as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Normalized Difference Red Edge (NDRE), chlorophyll-based indices, SAVI, OSAVI, and other index recognize and quantify any differences in the field. With technology sensing, it is quick and easy to visualize and detect such variability. Using UAV technology, we can create farm field health maps from visual and multispectral aerial imagery for thorough analysis.
False-color band combinations
Drones equipped with Multispectral Sensors can support visual combinations of red, green, and blue colors. These combinations and algorithms are dependent upon the phenomenons of reflectivity and absorption at multiple wavelengths. The different patterns allow us to see distinct features of hidden plants and risks like the presence of weeds or water-logged soil that would otherwise not be visible.
Fields Orthomosaic Map
Time is said to be a farmer's most valuable resource. They need to be able to detect damages and resolve problems in their early-stages for the utmost efficiency. A precise color Orthomosaic Map is often the first step and most crucial step in scouting. With the help of interpretation, farmers will be able to detect gaps in the crop instantly and find areas of visible stress while visualizing the maturity and growth stages of their vegetation.
High Resolution Crops Data
Our drone collects very high resolution data and can do aerial mapping to as far as per-plant level and this data helps in accurate plant counting.
Faster Crop Mapping
Our drone pilots cover crop fields in a fraction of the time, capturing all the data that helps is early detection of crop health issues.
