New England Avionics Agronomy Aerial Services
Agriculture drones are flying across Australia’s farmlands and changing the way data is analysed, fertilisers and pesticides are spread and fields are scouted. Agriculture drones have the potential to change the way we farm. As federal regulations around Remote Piloted Aircraft loosen, innovations around the use of agriculture drones are hinting at improved crop yields, higher economic returns and better use of water, labor and less pollution.
Expected yield and actual yield don’t ever match up in the real world and while farmers can’t control the weather, they can improve the tools they have to manage their fields. Growers have reported that drones have reduced their management yield gaps by up to 25%—all with images gained from flights that can cost less than a bushel an acre.
We offer our Agronomy Aerial Services in the New England Tablelands and North West Region of NSW.
Why choose New England Avionics
We have 2 years experience in using Remote Piloted Aircraft and specialise in Broad-Acre Pasture and Agriculture Crop Surveys.
- CASA Certified Pilots
- Access to GrazAg Agronomists
New England Avionics has specialised optical sensors that can accurately map wavelengths that are invisible to the naked eye, but give a good indication of the health of a plant. Such imagery is used in crop analysis were vegetation may appear to be lush and developing well from normal RGB data, but NGB images may show areas in a field were the plant is undergoing stress as a result from disease. over watering, pests, etc. Such information is very useful for farmers to get a snapshot of a crops health and proposed yields.
You can choose between a adhoc service or we can can offer services on a seasonal, yearly contract basis.
