The aerial data is captured by either drones (controlled using the cus- tom flight planning application) or satellite, using visual and mul- tispectral imagery. The standard drone package is the DJI Phantom 4 drone with the Parrot Sequoia multispectral camera, this plat- form is extremely reliable and pro- duces high quality imagery. This helps farmers with early problem detection, yield optimization and better resource management. Depending on the crop, farm- 7 day rial free t ers would typically capture drone data on a monthly basis. This is either done through using their own drone system or by connect- ing with one of Aerobotics’ service providers throughout the country. Alternatively, satellite data is avail- able weekly, and provides field health information and moisture maps. The farmer can use various tools here to help interpret the data and identify things like problem areas within his fields. Further, he can download this data into our mobile application, walk into the field and make notes or take photos from the ground. All of this can be used to make better data-driven decisions and track change over time.
