DJI Drone Multispectral Survey


Smarter crop management

Using specialist commercial drones and multispectral sensors, we can quickly identify poor performing crops for targeted preventative measures – drastically reducing the need for widespread pesticide and fertiliser usage.


Using drones to learn how your crops are really performing

Healthy crops reflect more green in the near-infrared wavelength. By capturing this data, we’re able to assess and analyse the vitality of individual crops – down to the individual leaves.

We’re also able to detect and monitor moisture and irrigation effectiveness. As such, we can discover any issues that might otherwise affect overall system performance.

What We Find

  • Crop Health & Density

  • Pests, Weeds & Diseased Areas

  • Crop Root Structure

  • Water Density

  • Soil Fertility

Where We Find It

  • Food Crops

  • Industrial Crops

  • Ornamental Crops

  • Feed Crops

Frequently Asked Questions

Precision agriculture is the practice of using multispectral sensors for progressive crop management. Also known as ‘smart farming’, precision agriculture surveys capture data in five narrow spectral bands. Using this data, we’re able to create health indexes and maps to better understand your crops.

Using the data collect from multispectral imaging, our team can highlight areas of interest for targeted preventative measures. In doing so, we drastically reduce the need for widespread pesticide and fertiliser usage.

As a DJI Enterprise Partner, we only use the latest commercial equipment available to industry. This means that unlike other companies, we’re able to process up to 100 hectares a day. This data is at a resolution that’s 500 times greater than satellite imagery. With this in mind, we’re able to capture multispectral data down to the individual leaves.

iRed® proudly works in partnership with agronomists at the Langmead Group. This collaboration enables us to pioneer new techniques and practices for industry, focusing our efforts towards effective data collection for the future of farming.

To accurately assess vineyards, farmland and high-value crops, it’s recommended that certain environmental conditions are met on the day of survey.

Ideally, our surveys will start 2 hours before the sun is at it’s highest point. Subsequently, surveys can be expected to end 2 hours after solar noon. These conditions allow us to collect detailed data, which is key for advanced methods of processing. Equally, to avoid the effects of shadowing it’s recommended that surveys are undertaken during clear skies (or a consistent overcast).

For the best results, we recommend that crops are inspected at regular intervals. This provides a full understanding of your fields, and allows us to map changes over time.
