UT Institute of Agriculture Study Shows Drones Could Help Crop Management Take Off

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS), commonly referred to as drones, could help farmers determine if their crop is growing satisfactorily, according to a recent study conducted by University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture researchers.

The study evaluated the ability of a UAS to accurately and precisely determine plant populations of cotton. Producers routinely assess plant populations early in the growing season to determine the state of their crop – and what management decisions are needed to ensure an optimal harvest. This is most often done by counting the number of plants within a selected distance and repeating those counts in different locations throughout the field to find an average.

Current Status and Future Trends of Precision Agricultural Aviation Technologies

Authors: Lan Y, Shengde C, Fritz B K

The International Tri-Conference for Precision Agriculture in 2017

Publisher: Zenodo

Modern technologies and information tools can be used to maximize agricultural aviation productivity allowing for precision application of agrochemical products. This paper reviews and summarizes the state-of-the-art in precision agricultural aviation technology highlighting remote sensing, aerial spraying and ground verification technologies. Further, the authors forecast the future of precision agricultural aviation technology with key development directions in precision agricultural aviation technologies, such as real-time image processing, variable-rate spraying, multi-sensor data fusion and RTK differential positioning, and other supporting technologies for UAV-based aerial spraying. This review is expected to provide references for peers by summarizing the history and achievements, and encourage further development of precision agricultural aviation technologies.

Delair launches UX11, a New Professional Unmanned Aerial Vehicle with Onboard Processing Capability

DELAIR, world leader in commercial drones, will introduce its next-generation professional unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for survey-grade photogrammetric mapping, the UX11, at INTERGEO 2017 on September 26th in Berlin, Germany. This small fixed-wing UAV combines a powerful integrated onboard system, industry-grade sensors, limitless communication range and PPK centimeter-level positioning. The UX11 carries enough onboard computing power to access and process the pictures, then send them to the operator in real-time. It will run automated quality checks on the images (such as blur detection or overlap checks) to help ensure the operator is acquiring quality data.

#FenixGroup to launch #Drone capable of providing Cost Savings #4G cell phone service

Fenix Group, Inc., a private Virginia based technology firm, has partnered with Martin UAV, a Texas based manufacturer of rugged utility drones to launch the world's first under-55-lbs. drone capable of providing fully functional 4G cell phone service. The feat may be a world's first, and the company sees huge potential for government and industry.

"When we first conceived the project, we knew we had to make it a priority. The market is just there for this right now and Martin UAV immediately understood that. Beyond tactical closed networks for DoD at huge cost savings over what is currently being fielded, the marriage of unmanned systems with LTE core networks is representative of what Google was trying to do with their Loon program. We beat Google at something, for very little money, and that feels great." – Dave Peterson, Fenix Group's President & CEO

Water is the "lifeblood" of agriculture, fertilizer is the "grain" of crops, and pesticides are the "medicine" of crop to prevent and control the disease.
liquid-saving spraying is a topic of modern agriculture.
When it use the intelligent and automatic agriculture drone , Drone agriculture sprayer only need 15 to 20 square water and less liquid to spray one hectares,and it was reduced 80% of the water and liquid than the manual. The original one hectare of garden and farm need to hire a dozen people to take care, but now when they use the agriculture drone only need 1 or 2 man,and the labor cost is saving.
For the efficient use of chemical fertilizers, it can greatly reduce the fertilizer loss, And fertilizer must be rely on agricultural drones equipment. Compare to manual, The crops of fertilizer can reduce 20%, While increasing production amount of more than 10%.
When the drone agriculture sprayer pesticide may improve the safety and efficiency.And the drones in agriculture spray more accuracy,uniform and more penetrating,so the drone sprayer may be a trend of agriculture.

Why we choose this agriculture drone sprayer? Intelligent? Multi-functional? or Automatic?
All of this, it have.
