Outputs from DataMapper, such as Canopy Cover and Plant Count are now automatically linked to the grower’s operations centre, giving growers the power of aerial imagery analytics in software they are already accustomed to using in their crop management decisions.

Precisionhawk Australia director Nathaniel Hyde said dealers and farmers had long-anticipated the integration.

“We believe that in order to achieve the highest level of precision ag technology adoption, it is critical that we fit our toolset into a grower’s existing capabilities,” Hyde said.

“This way we can provide a streamline approach that does not require access or training on different software interfaces.”

Earlier this month at the ‘Develop with Deere’ Conference in Kansas City , PrecisionHawk development experts explained how its DataMapper, working with the John Deere Operations Centre, acted as the easiest entry to using drone data in agriculture.

It’s the latest move in a growing industry push towards precision agriculture technology, including aerial data collected by drones.

Kondinin Group researchers are investigating how drones benefit farmers for the December Research Report, as well as looking at what are the drones available on the market.
