Corn School: Building Management Zones with a UAV


It’s no secret that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have huge potential for the agricultural industry. In fact, for many companies, they are already serving a very valuable role, even as we continue to explore their potential applications.

Agris Co-Operative is one of those companies.

“We have two cameras,” explains Agris’ Robyn DeBrouwer, holding an eBee UAV, in the following Corn School. “We fly with an infrared camera and a colour camera.”

A forty acre field will take DeBrouwer 12-15 minutes to capture, going home with 125 images to process and pass on to colleagues who look them over for variances and potential issues in the field.

Join RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin on this first video of a two-part series, where he asks DeBrouwer about the process of going from a corn field and a UAV to a single image that can be an incredible aide in crop diagnostics.
