Throughout the whole growing season, drone images can be a useful too for farmers to make their work more effective.  Drones can be used in the paddock to help answer important questions:
  • How was the establishment of your last crop?
  • Where do I need to reduce or increase the seed rate next time?
  • Should I change the time of fertilisation?  
  • Where do I have a weed problem?


  • Crop scouting: Using drones is a much quicker, simpler way of scouting crops to find irregularities and issues so that you can reduce variability and solve problems faster.
  • Soil mapping: Identify crop variation and damage across an entire field in a matter of hours.
  • Irrigation optimisation: Drone imagery helps identify irregularities in irrigation based on the vegetative cover and other indicators that you can only see from overhead, so you can make adjustments and achieve irrigation uniformity.
  • Drainage repair: Fix drainage issues so that water is consistent across the crop.
  • Yield optimisation: Make the right crop adjustments faster with instant data and detailed mapping.
  • Yield projections: Make accurate projections based on detailed, high-resolution mapping.
  • Nitrogen application: More easily see nitrogen deficiencies in your crops.
  • Emergence/Stand count: Determine if you need to replant in any areas.
  • Equipment malfunction detection: Catch equipment issues that result in uneven seeding, pesticides distribution or replanting or gaps in plants.
  • Pest issues: Determine if any areas are having pest issues, and assess the effectiveness of pest control strategies.

It's all about understanding the strengths and weaknesses in the paddocks, in order to increase yield and improve efficiency.  Data Sense Aeromedia works with growers and agronomists to provide detailed insights about crops that would not be noticeable on foot or by traditional land-based methods.
