Using drones in precision agriculture allows you to efficiently distribute weeds control or fertilizers and to optimize field management.
You can reduce agricultural operations costs, improve crop quality, and increase the return rate of your cultivation

Precision agriculture with UP drones: benefits
Reduction of consumption and waste
Reduction of hourly costs
An accurate report and database
Rational use of resources
Mapping and surveying to gather data
To build high-resolution, centimetre-accurate 3D and 2D maps and models for precision agriculture, UP drones performs aerial survey using specific devices as payloads: multispectral, thermal, LiDAR or RGB sensors (for photogrammetry).
You can use these payloads to get:
A basic Red-Green-Blue map allows you to see exactly how much land you have to grow (to the centimeter), and helps you with crop monitoring for a long time, suggesting how you can adjust your work from season to season
Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) shows you the amount of infrared light reflected in an area, which indicates malnourishment and drought.
Crop dusting, spraying and insects release
Spraying a product too much concentrated in some areas, potentially decreases the quality of your cultivation with a consequent price increase.
On the opposite, a low concentration makes your crops vulnerable to being overgrown with weeds, malnourished, or eaten by insects and other predators. Also in this case potentially you will decrease the soil yield.
The right drone and spraying payload can distribute chemicals evenly and efficiently:
