NDVI (normalized difference vegetation index) is a simple graphical indicator of vegetation health. In the past NDVI has been acquired by satellite imagery but this has limitations of poor resolution and frequency of new maps. Our specialised agricultural remote sensing equipment allows us to capture high resolution NDVI maps of crops to identify problems such as lack of fertiliser, irrigation and malfunctioning farming equipment before they become an issue.
Knowing where problems lie greatly reduces costs in addressing them. Instead of applying fertiliser or pesticide to the entire field it can be targeted to only the effected area saving time and money.
By using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to collect the data not only means time saving but also less interference with the crops. Inspecting an entire crop manually may find issues but it very time intensive and will only find problems once they have become apparent.
True NDVI imaging allows problems to be seen long before they start to cause real damage to a crop. This allows you to intervene early and maintain a higher yield than if you were to wait until signs of damage start to appear.
