Inspection and analysis of crops

ANALYZING CROPS AND ORCHARDS FROM THE SKY TO EVALUATE AND OPTIMIZE THEIR HEALTH

QUICKER CROP INSPECTION TIME

Accelerating the inspection of your crops from the sky

 

Parrot's drone solutions facilitate the visual surveillance work of farmers so that crop inspection is no longer a long and demanding operation.
 

The analysis of images and videos captured during the drone's flight gives you a quick overview of your plots of land without having to cover the entire field yourself.

 

Parrot drones can be manually or automatically flown with a flight plan to map specific areas of your land without being an experienced pilot. 

ANALYZE YOUR PLOTS OF LAND TO IDENTIFY REQUIREMENTS

Parrot solutions help the farmer in his decision making.

 

Parrot solutions simplify the life of the farmer who wants to analyze his crops.

 

The data captured by the drone is processed to map the plot of land. The farmer then has NDVI maps and zoning available within hours of the flight. These maps are an accurate X-ray of the entire plot of land to draw up a health inventory of the vegetation.

 

So Parrot solutions help the farmer to better identify the health status of the vegetation in order to make decisions based on plot data.

EASY-TO-USE SOLUTIONS DESIGNED FOR THE FARM

Parrot technologies to benefit the farmer

 

Parrot's business solutions have been designed to be easy to use. Integrated technologies make drone control accessible to everyone.

 

The farmer can control his drone manually to inspect his farm or plan an automatic flight over his plots of land, using his mobile device and the Parrot Skycontroller 2.

A DECISION-MAKING SOLUTION FOR FARMERS

Analyze your plots of land and make decisions at the right time completely independently

 

Parrot solutions enable farmers to increase their independence to analyze their plots of land without needing to use outside contractors.

 

Thanks to the data collected via the Parrot solution, they can quickly analyze their plots of land, identify problem areas and make decisions about the right take action at the right time.

Parrot Bluegrass Fields: The Better Way to Work In-Field

Parrot Bluegrass Fields provides agriculture professionals with a better way to work, thanks to its unique combination of rugged drone, accurate sensors, easy-to-use mapping and scouting ParrotFields app and robust post-processing software for agriculture. Parrot Bluegrass Fields is the only complete end-to-end drone solution designed from the ground up to make data collection and analysis quick, easy and efficient. 

Step 1. In-Field Set-Up

Parrot Bluegrass Fields is easy to transport and set-up. Carry your Parrot Bluegrass Fields drone in its tailor-made backpack, which conveniently houses three batteries that provide 25 minutes of flight time each, to your desired location. From there, simply connect your smart device to the included Parrot Skycontroller 2, prepare your first automatic flight via the ParrotFields mobile app and you're ready to start mapping.

Step 2. First Flight for crop mapping

Parrot Bluegrass Fields makes it easy to map multiple fields and generate NDVI crop maps. Just plan your flight using the ParrotFields mobile app and the drone will fly above your field, automatically map the area and create an NDVI map in real-time.

With Parrot Bluegrass Fields, you can fly high to cover larger areas or fly low for better resolution, depending on your project's requirements.

Step 3. In-Field Analysis

Using the NDVI map processed in real-time, it's easy to instantly analyze and compare crop data, including any potential problem areas. You can even compare current NDVI maps with past versions to track the evolution of your crops or add value to your map by adding text annotations.

Step 4. Follow-Up Flight for Aerial Visual Scouting

After identifying problem areas, you can perform a semi-automated follow-up flight using ParrotFields on any areas that require further analysis. Simply program a second flight based on the NDVI map result and the drone will automatically fly from one identified problem area to another. You can then take manual control of the drone, inspect each area with the front RGB camera (14 MP), take pictures of the video feed with the single push of a button on your Parrot Skycontroller 2 and get a better understanding of any potential problems affecting your crops.

Step 5. Ground Scouting

ParrotFields also allows you to complete aerial data with ground data. After flying over potential problem areas, operators can walk their fields and take pictures directly using the ParrotFields app. These images are GPS-tagged and can receive additional text annotations for easy reference.

Step 6. In-Depth Analysis

Whether through the cloud or their desktop computer, Parrot Bluegrass Fields solution lets operators further analyze the data collected through the included Pix4Dfields software. 

With Pix4Dfields, you can identify in-field variability, generate index maps, create prescription maps and much more.

Step 7. Seamless Workflow Integration

Parrot Bluegrass Fields solution seamlessly integrates into existing workflows. Pix4Dfields outputs can be integrated into almost any FMIS, and directly into tractors, which can then be utilized efficiently in the field and help farmers to know exactly where and how much to fertilize their crops.
