The use of drones and other remote sensing tools in agriculture has seen significant growth in recent years. However there is a problem, a barrier that is stopping their widespread adoption; and that is poor data quality and consistency. Drones have the potential to give quantitative assessment of key decisions and attributes on the farm; for example when and where to spray for pests and diseases, how much yield am I going to get, how much fertilizer do I need to apply and can I demonstrate that I’m adhering to legislation. ProvEye will remove the barriers associated with poor data and consistency with advanced image processing software which was originally developed in-house for satellites, but now has been adapted for drones.
The ProEye solution will allow for the full potential of optical data to be realised through quantitative products that can be directly integrated into precision agriculture decision support systems that will look to either increase yields or reduce input costs.
