Ag Drone School: Summer Edition in Edmonton

Crops are variable across the prairies this year, but those in drier areas will likely be swathing four weeks from now. If you've been thinking of using a drone on your farm, now is the time to choose a system and get trained to use it properly. We will be offering our Ag Drone School across western Canada again after harvest (starting early November, because we're confident that grain will be in the bin earlier this year). We do also have one offering of our full two-day school near Edmonton this summer. You'll learn about various types of crop imaging systems (RGB, NIR-converted, and multispectral) and go through examples of how you would use that data as a farmer or agronomist. The Bl

Multispectral for Wine Quality

Many companies have been clambering for top spot in the agricultural drone market. Incredible improvements in robotics and flight technology have created aircraft that can fly further, faster and longer. They gather data seemingly autonomously, though for regulatory reasons there must always be an authorized pilot in charge for safety reasons. But the development of sensors and software did not keep up with the immense pace of change in the aircraft. Most farm UAS today are using either standard visible-light (RGB) cameras or consumer cameras converted to also collect near-infrared light. That is … until 2016. Now multispectral sensors have finally come of age and are affordable enough for u
