Benefits Of Drone Technology In Precision Agriculture

The American Farm Bureau Federation, Information Economics and Measure, a drone as a service company, have released a study that identifies and quantifies the benefits of drone technology in precision agriculture. Version 1.0 of the Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator quantifies the economic benefits of drone as a service for three applications: field crop scouting, 3D terrain mapping and crop insurance. It initially covers corn, wheat and soybeans—three of the largest production crops—which allows growers to quickly and easily determine if drone technology would be worthwhile after getting results from farm data entered into the ROI Calculator.

The ROI Calculator will be available as a web-based application on the Measure website, with additional functionality added over time to include more drone applications and types of crops, Measure said. “There is no other tool like this available to farmers looking to drones to increase yields or save money,” the company added.

“While lots of drone hardware has been sold to farmers, until today, no tool existed to help growers actually quantify whether the benefits exceed their costs, especially when farmers want to outsource these types of services,” said Justin Oberman, president of Measure. “Working with the Farm Bureau and our partners, we have created the only ROI Calculator for drone use in precision agriculture. This tool will help growers understand how drone technology can improve their performance for the benefit of consumers in the U.S. and around the world.”

The study occurred in two phases. Phase 1, completed in February 2015, culminated in the production of a nearly 100-page report highlighting the best use cases for drones in precision agriculture. In Phase 2, Measure and Information used data collected from desk research, interviews with industry experts and drone flights to aid in the construction of the ROI Calculator.

“This study and the ROI Calculator will help make drones a reality for farmers and ranchers,” said Julie Potts, executive vice president and treasurer of the American Farm Bureau. “Every year we must feed more people on the same fields while protecting the environment we all share. Precision agriculture and drones in particular will be an important part of executing on that mission.”

Is an agronomist required?

No an agronomist is not required to read the data as many large scale farmers are quite familiar with NDVI and they have been using Farm Management software that will create management zones and prescriptions as well as satellite based NDVI imagery for many years. However, there is a misconception in the UAV industry which is NDVI will tell you exactly what is wrong in your field.

The reality is that the NDVI vegetation index is a crop health indicator telling you if the field is healthy and doing well or if it is stressed and the locations (i.e GPS markers) of the stress and total areas or acres stressed. Stress can be caused by numerous different causes including but not limited to: too much water, water drought, pest infestation, nitrogen leaching, hail damage, wind damage, fire damage, diseases...all of these can be stressors. The agronomist/farmer/scout can get an aerial view of the field quickly and then go pinpoint the locations to investigate to see what is causing the crop to be stressed. So we like to think of the UAV/payload/software as a tool in the ag professionals toolbox.

 Not only does it minimize compaction in the field but the largest advantage that Sentek sees is from a biology standpoint with the current glyphosate resistance issues due to the Roundup Ready era. According to Kim Salant of Sentek, "when attending many conference proceedings at Commodity Classic last year there were several presentations given by farmers especially in southern states right now that had applied roundup on everything for a few years. They said they thought they had 15 years before the weeds would start to evolve and become resistant. However in only a few years the weeds rapidly evolved and became resistant and there were farmers there saying they now have entire fields covered 100% in weeds and there is currently no technology on the market that will allow them to plant crop again. There are mitigation techniques that are now being recommended by the Monsanto R&D researchers which is rotating crops and pesticides and herbicides to maximize the amount of time you have before this happens. We see that if you could put together a plan with crop rotation, as well as rotating herbicides, along with selectively spraying only the locations in need this will prolong the life of the chemical to ensure its effectiveness. Anyways this may help put it in terms the farmer may understand since they are living through these problems right now! "

The manufacture reps at Sentek, the makers of the GENS all-in-one hardware/software package is also available to talk to the potential customers and explain that selectively spraying their field has many strategic advantages.
