The Volume Measurement Tool is a great way to figure out the total size of a pile at your work site. Instead of bringing in heavy machinery and belt scales to weigh materials, a few clicks on the Botlink Capture App will do the same job more accurately and at a fraction of the cost.
As the owner of ForeFront Ag Solutions, an independent crop consulting business located in Indiana, Erich Eller specializes in agronomy and precision agriculture. For the past two years he has incorporated drones into his business. He flies an AgEagle drone, and uses Botlink software to analyze the images he captures.
Since agronomists and scientists began using it in 1973, the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) has become one of the most successful tools to easily and quickly assess plant and crop health. Fast forward to today, NDVI is the most common vegetation index captured with drones and used in precision agriculture.
Drones, like tractors of the sky, are changing agriculture. They save you time and help you work more efficiently. They can quickly cover more ground by air than by land, while being less disruptive to crops and livestock. Spending fewer hours surveying your field leaves more time to focus on other important tasks. Drones also provide a very different perspective of your land from above than you might be used to seeing from the window of your pickup. And with drone software to process the aerial imagery, the applications are even more numerous.
