Pollen Systems Services for the 2019 Growing Season!

Pollen Systems Services for the 2019 Growing Season!

We have some exciting additions to our product line for the 2019 growing season. By combining aerial imaging services with ground-based imaging, we are bridging the gap between drone imagery and actionable management decisions. Our farm management tools are listed below with example imagery:

  1. High resolution (3 cm/pixel GSD) aerial imaging and analytics
  2. Ground-based imaging via tractors and autonomous ground vehicles (beta)
  3. GIS data augmentation
  4. Digital surface modeling of canopy
  5. Prescription maps for variable rate management
  6. Online data portal for instant access to farm data

Soil GIS Data and NDRE Imagery

By augmenting our NDRE imagery with soil GIS data, farmers can delineate different vigor zones based on their underlying soil type and historic management practices. They can also identify any health issues that may be a result of different edaphic conditions. Soil type numbers indicate the US Soil Survey classification ID.


Digital Surface Model of Canopy Height and Topographic GIS Data

A digital surface model is a 2D representation of the ground surface, including any objects on the surface. This enables farmers to understand how their crops are growing vertically and how topography will affect drainage and soil erosion. Red indicates a taller canopy, whereas yellow and green indicate a shorter canopy.


Prescription Maps for Variable Rate Management


Prescription maps can be used for a number of variable rate management practices, including spraying, irrigation, compost applications, and harvesting. Using our NDVI and NDRE vegetation index maps, we can create custom prescription maps to meet your specific variable rate management needs.

Many stand-still sensors, such as soil monitoring sensors, only collect data from several locations throughout your field so deriving a prescription for your entire farms can be difficult and inaccurate. With aerial drone data, you not only get a full view of your field, you also get more accurate and holistic prescriptions maps to treat each area of your farm according to its specific needs.

By combining our aerial imaging services with our tractor-based sensors, we can rapidly identify problem areas and enable you to investigate those areas with detailed imagery on the ground. With ground-based imagery, we can detect issues such as spider mites, fungal pathogens and other specific issues that aren’t visible from above and are too time consuming to detect manually.
