Precision Agriculture Imagery
Benefits of Imagery Collection
Deveron’s Imagery Services provide in-season imagery and analysis for variable rate applications, land management and research programs. We offer both aerial and satellite imagery options to give you timely and high resolution imagery solutions for you to make actionable decisions throughout the season. Imagery gives you the bigger picture over vast amounts of acres and can help you save time and money.
Informed Agronomic Decisions
Types of Imagery
Visual maps used for crop scouting, stand count, crop damage assessment earth works projects, tiling and terracing work.
Data rich maps portraying plant health. Used to create management zones and variable rate application prescriptions based on current field conditions.
Providing a Drone’s Eye View, Deveron takes guessing out of agriculture. Our team of professionals use the world’s most advanced unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), sensors and software paired with insights to help growers with crop growth staging, field conditions and field health. It can also be used to identify tilling, high/low vegetation, crop disease, insects and more.
We use advanced satellite imagery as a supplemental data set for times when Aerial Imagery is not possible due to instances such as unfavourable weather conditions where our drone pilots cannot get out to fly. We offer satellite imagery to collect and analyze intricate data for farmers to make informed decisions, reduce costs and increase their yields.
Variable Rate Prescriptions
Our Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) maps highlight variable yield potential in rapidly growing crops. Using NDVI to divide the field into management zones can improve profitability by increasing or decreasing rates where yield potential is high or low, respectively.
Zone Soil Sampling
In-season aerial imagery captures the spatial variation in soil properties that a traditional grid sample will reveal, making it a convenient outline to direct sampling protocols. By delineating management zones from an NDVI map, a number of samples can be pulled from the field while providing equal insight into the actual causes of yield variability.
Wording from Fieldview site – **need to edit**
The biggest benefit of field health imagery is that you can identify and address potential yield-threatening issues with current and historical images. Using data collected by satellites and drones, we deliver three field health image types: vegetation, scouting and true color. Each of these layers offers a unique perspective of what is taking place in your fields.
Vegetation and Scouting Maps available.
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.
Winter Wheat Kill Assessment
We are pleased to provide our clients across North America with a tool to determine the implications of Winter Wheat Kill.
How it works
You will receive one data collection through UAV or Drone (remote sensing), plus a Relative Plant Health Map which will help you to determine the percentage of winter wheat kill. This tool is designed to assist growers objectively determine the best financial decisions for their winter wheat, while considering the implications of replanting decisions, nutrient applications, and yield potential.
- We collect a layer of early season UAV imagery to show relative plant health. The imagery is a real-time, high resolution data layer, which can be imported into any precision ag software program
- We create a Relative Plant HealthMap based on information provided in your order. Showing the areas affected by poor plant health and emergence
- You will receive a Plant Health Assessment Map displaying the percentage of winter kill along with the raw data layers
