Thermal Imagery Tuesday - Areas of crops may be affected by heat, stress, improper water, pests, and disease. No different than any other large field crop, monitoring the conditions of the entire field can be difficult. Using Near Infrared Technology, or NIR sensors, drones can provide growers with a bird’s eye view of the field and report back specific areas which may be in distress. The images are loaded into a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index to provide a detailed analysis map of the health of the crop, helping farmers identify the specific areas which may need extra water, nutrients or other attention.
