DroneDeply announces it is collaborating with CNH Industrial to offer a new drone data package called PLM Drone Data Manager, which can help farmers collect aerial data mapping for their operation. Ideally, the technology can help uncover any number of in-season opportunities, such as adjusting a fertilizer program on the go or identifying pests or analyzing plant counts and stand establishment.
“Farmers and producers may not be able to control certain environmental conditions, but drones are an efficient way to mitigate crop health issues and improve yields,” according to Scott Lumish, vice president of business development at DroneDeploy. “The benefits of being able to survey both the 10,000-foot view of fields, as well as zoom in to inches above the plants, are incredibly powerful.”
With DroneDeploy’s software, users can fly a field, create maps and view those maps with a variety of filters on the same day. Owners have the ability to easily share this data and analysis with their trusted advisors. The software is compatible with both Apple and Android devices.
The package is available at more than 1,000 New Holland and Case IH dealerships. The bundle includes a one-year subscription to DroneDeploy’s software, a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone with RGB camera and additional drone accessories.
