Artificial intelligence (AI) and drones are 10 times faster than traditional crop walking methods used by farmers to monitor the growth and health of their plants.
AI and drones 10 times faster than traditional crop walking
This week a new version of Drone Ag’s Skippy Scout software was launched that combines the power of AI and drones to speed up the monitoring of crops ten times compared to traditional methods used in agriculture.
The version of the Skippy Scout 2.5 app is able to cover up to 25 acres in about five minutes and provides field overview, automated scouting and field reports using maps uploaded by the user, and images taken by the drone reports the Irish Farmers Journal.
“Our image analysis takes only minutes to provide an easy-to-understand report of the whole field,” said Drone Ag founder Jack Wrangham.
The crop monitoring software uses AI to identify any crop issues and the generated reports can be combined with satellite and yield maps to find correlations in-field performance. Skippy Scout 2.5 can also breakdown the information with green area index (GAI), healthy and unhealthy crop cover percentage, weed percentage. It also gives an insect damage measurement.
