We’re investigating robotic solutions to keep an eye on key locations in fields. Scouting in this way gives a boots-on-the-ground view, without needing to set foot in the field.
Our past experience in using drones to create growth maps taught us that while it can be useful to regularly scan an entire field, most growers know their land very well, and know what areas need watching. Instead of watching a whole field, it may be better to keep a close eye on a handful of “hot spots” instead.
Being able to deliver this data without any need for the landowner to set foot in the field means giving growers a much better idea of what’s happening on their land, at low cost and with very little effort.
Figuring out the best way to do this is our current goal.
