Agriculture Drones and Precision Agriculture with NDVI

NDVI (Normalised Difference Vegetation Index) with the use of drones and precision agriculture is a fairly new development. Until recently farmers had no choice other than to spend hours trying to visualise data from ground level perspective. Surveying large areas of land using tractors and quad bikes etc is limiting and time-consuming.

The recent advancements in precision agriculture technology mean that agricultural surveys using drones are now an affordable and viable option for most farmers, saving time and money, whilst delivering much more accurate data. What would have previously taken days can now be completed in a matter of hours.

Why chose Helidragon as your NDVI drone partner?

NDVI is calculated from the visible and near-infrared light that is reflected by vegetation. Put simply healthy vegetation absorbs most of the visible light that hits it, reflecting a large portion of near-infrared light. The opposite is true of sparse or unhealthy vegetation, therefore producing a pictorial representation of plant health. Using our state of the art drones equipped with the latest camera technology we can produce modified imagery. Our software enables us to turn imagery into valuable data.

In addition to this drones can also perform tasks that farmers can’t such as soil health scans, crop health & protection and pest damage analysis. The use of drones in agriculture is, in general, being more widely adopted. Livestock farmers are increasingly using drones to track the movement of animals across vast expanses of difficult to navigate the terrain.
