During the Precision Agriculture Vertical Breakout Session at the fifth annual Commercial UAV Expo Americas in October of 2019, industry experts discussed how farmers are implementing aerial tools and how to efficiently use drones to achieve higher yields by identifying problems before they happen. A major way this has been achieved is through multispectral imaging via drone.
Commercial UAV News has written a number of articles and even hosted a webinar discussing the benefit of multispectral imagery in precision agriculture, here are just a few we have posted recently:
- Drone Mapping Firm Leverages Artificial Intelligence to Provide Commercial Crop Counting and Weed Detection Services
- Quantum-Systems Trinity F90+ and MicaSense Dual Camera System Integration Opens New Possibilities with Fully Integrated PPK Process
- Predicting the Future of Precision Agriculture for the Drone Industry in 2020 with Greg Crutsinger
- Amsterdam Drone Week 2019: Exploring UAS in Public Safety, Surveying and Agriculture
- Is the Agriculture Industry Ready to Adopt Drone Technology?
- Dual Camera System from MicaSense Eases Drone Sensor Integration Challenges on the Farm
- Micasense And Flurosat Partner to Provide Better Agronomic Analytics
When it comes to achieving the best results with multispectral imagining, having a sensor equipped with five spectral bands has been the gold standard for examining crop health. This number of bands provides farmers with important information that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. Lately, companies like Micasense, a business with a long history in the precision agriculture industry, have been increasing the number of bands available on their sensors. What has led industry leading sensor manufacturers to expand the bandwidth, and what value do additional bands offer the industry?
This is exactly what our upcoming webinar “Making 10 Bands Work for You: Capabilities of "Superspectral" Imaging” will explain. During the webinar, industry insiders, Emily Ciesielski, Channel Sales Manager, and Callum Scougal, Sales Engineer at MicaSense will breakdown the added values and insights users can gain from superspectral imaging, which includes use cases like aquatic weed detection, drone/satellite comparison analysis, species classification, coastal mapping and more.
