Are you using drones effectively? In agriculture, drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's) are a quick and efficient means to collect field level data with on-demand results. Agricultural drones, in comparison to other ag equipment and precision tools, are very affordable and can pay for themselves in as little as one growing season.
Agricultural drones can be used for:
- Crop scouting & field health monitoring
- Prescription mapping for in-season fertilization
- Weed reports with locations and coverages
- 3D terrain mapping
- Improving irrigation management
- Crop damage assessment
When paired with robust software, like FarmLens and SMS Advanced, drones are able to provide actionable data within minutes of their flight.
Agricultural drones will become an important part of many growers Precision Ag Programs.
The NDVI software platform by FarmLens is one of the simplest, most advanced solutions to helping growers monitor crop health and make better precision decisions for each field. Designed specifically for agriculture, FarmLens is intuitive and provides actionable results in minutes.
Plan Your Flight - Preprogram the flight from your office, or program the flight directly from the field using your laptop, tablet, or smartphone, then simply sync the path to your drone and you're ready to fly.
Fly and Collect - With the touch of a button, take-off, fly your path, and land. Once the flight is completed, just upload the information collected on the SD card for the FarmLens processing and analytics platform.
Decide - Within minutes of the flight, view preliminary results and determine if any more specific data or photos will helpful to your analysis. Additional photos can be taken and logged in the system to ensure all data possible is available when making decisions. Back at the office, within a few business hours, you'll have a full NDVI Field Health Map and Flight Report.
|FarmLens Data Products||Subscription Level|
|Field Health Report - Identify and quantify issues within a field, guiding more effective and efficient field scouting.The output is a relative Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) map that shows the relative vegetation condition within a field. The result is available as Google Earth, GeoTIFF, and JPG.||
|Variable Application Report - From the NDVI, FarmLens generates a gridded management zone map in vector file (SHP) format, compatible with most agricultural data packages (e.g. SMS, SST). This report is an excellent input to tailor variable rate application.||Professional|
|Digital Scouting Report - This complete, printable PDF report is an excellent presentation to growers and other customers. In addition to snapshots of the Field Health Report, it contains specific, field-level weather data, including growing degree days, temperature trends and precipitation – all on 1- and 3-year trends.||Professional|
|Stand Count - Provides accurate plant counts across the survey area, used to identify poor germination and assist replanting decisions.||Professional|
|Custom Data Processing - Digital elevation models (DEM), weed maps, and more.||

Ag Leader Software
Using the SMS Advanced software, users can view field trends based on layers of annual field data including: soil types, soil fertility results, yield data, yield trends, NDVI results, and more in a single map to create management zones. Build an equation to generate a new dataset based on mapped layers.
- Map layer types: soil test results, soil type, grain harvest, zone maps or previous fertilizing application
- Create, edit and save fertilizer recommendation equations
- Output multiple product recommendations from a single equation, for efficient prescription writing
- Convert imagery into a manageable spatial layer for data analysis, creating prescriptions, or generating management zones
