For agricultural producers there are several opportunities to benefit from an on-demand map.
Corn Stand Counts -Most producers measure off a certain number of feet and count all of the seedling corn plants. This process is repeated 5-7 times in the field and calculated to provide the number of plants per acre. With our service, our software counts the individual plants to arrive at a much more accurate corn plant population estimate.
Weather Event – When unpredictable weather surfaces we can provide a bird’s eye view of the extent of damage from a wind event or flood conditions. A timely map we can easily create can be used for insurance-type claims or management decisions on potential replanting.
Wildlife Crop Predation – Feral pigs cause millions of dollars in damage to agricultural crops. Deer frequently prefer agricultural crops to other wild foods in their range. Severe damage is usually the result of a highly preferred crop planted in an area of high deer population. To assist with mitigation strategies, our service can assess the extent of crop damage from wildlife.
