Aerial system identifies stressed crops

09 Oct Aerial system identifies stressed crops

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Using an unmanned aerial system to

take photos of fields can help farmers identify applicator or implement errors

as well as stressed plants.

 

“We can see the blue, red and green bands of lights

with our naked eyes,” said Kyle Miller, aerial applications engineer for

AgEagle. He demonstrated the AgEagle system during a RavenX Event.

“We can tell the difference between a severely stressed

leaf and a healthy leaf because it is easy for our eyes to understand that,”

Miller said. “But between a healthy leaf and a slightly stressed leaf that has

nitrogen deficiency, aphid infestation or water damage, it’s a lot harder to see

and that’s why we’re using near infrared.”
