Aerial Photograph for agriculture purposes

Hello, my name is Alejandrina, I'm Ingenieer in agronomy production from Argentine I' m an Ardupilot  happy owner for my new Skywalker, I'm newbie with RC and autopilot, my idea is to obtain aerial photos of the crops to help me to decide fertilization in presicion agriculture; my english is very bad but I'm going to try to participate in this very useful forum.

Here's my New plane on It's first day

Here you can see the Ardu and the minim in the top and the Dragon downside

 Finally the minim moves in front of the plane fro interferences with gps

I have to decide how to attach the compact camera

For the moment I attached the camera like this

  • Hi guys,


    I need a small size camera for agricultural mapping and I found these:

    http://www.agrocam.eu/

    They look good: low cost, native 16MP sensor, shutter triggering by flight controller.

    Do you have experience on them? 


  • Gracias Joe, muy interesante la pag

  • This is positive use of drones for agriculture.

  • Hi Guys,

    I'm new to this NDVI imagery. Therefore asking "dumb" question. How do you apply spraying corrections to the mapped fields when you've an analyzed NDVI map? How will farmers apply additional fertilizer on the filed? From farmers side a GPS guidance equipped machines always a must?

    Thanks,

    • Check the AgLeader website. There's pretty much everything there is regarding GPS guidance and precision agriculture consoles for machinery

    • Ideally you need machinery with gps and a device for variable aplication, you generate a prescription map and the sprayer, etc. do it.

  • Ok Tomas
