For growers who have previously lacked access to the data that comes from using drones in precision farming there is now a solution. Fly Ag Tech is currently the only FAA-approved drone network in the U.S. Their company gives farmers, agronomists and UAS operators the ability to collaborate to create precision maps for growers across the nation.
“What we offer is unprecedented in the industry. Never before have producers had the ability to get aerial imagery on demand like this. Our operators not only fly your farm, but they pull soil samples as well,” said Casey Adams, the company’s founder. “This creates a profile for your land so that you have a full understanding of what is happening from the ground and from the air. No other organization in the country can do what Fly Ag Tech is doing. Any farm, Anywhere, Any time.”
The independently owned company allows farmers to own the data, a big deal for many operations. And they offer flexible packages, from between 2 and 6 flights a season, agronomists consolations, stand counts, variable rate prescription maps and pest detection.
“Drones and remote sensing tools allow the producer to combine seeding rate and yield rate with drone produced emergent rate, variable rate nitrogen prescription, and canopy height. The producer is able to analyze the field across the entire growing season to make production decisions for next year,” says Scott Jackman, 22 year veteran pilot.
