Depend crops throughout your whole subject with ease utilizing Agremo and DroneDeploy

Correct stand counts and early intervention can imply the distinction between a profitable harvest or main crop losses. However conventional floor sampling is imprecise and infrequently includes a excessive margin of error.
Agremo, out there on the DroneDeploy app market and within the Precision Agriculture subscription bundle, gives a cheap different to conventional stand counts that’s simple and correct. Drone-based stand counts let agriculture professionals pinpoint areas of potential yield loss and take corrective motion at key instances in the course of the rising season. With the app, customers can rely crops throughout a whole subject utilizing maps produced in DroneDeploy. In a matter of hours, customers obtain an in depth report with info on stand density and emergence. This stage of environment friendly evaluation has made Agremo one of the crucial fashionable agriculture apps on the DroneDeploy App Market.
“We wished to permit Ag companies to enhance their operations and lower your expenses, by counting on correct info reminiscent of exact plant numbers. Our customers acknowledged Agremo as an easy-to-use resolution which quantifies what is definitely occurring of their fields, with no particular expertise required!” — says Milan, the CEO of Agremo
What we’ve discovered from our prospects
Throughout a current journey, the Agremo staff requested farmers to call a couple of issues they battle with with regard to face rely and stand institution. They discovered that over 75% of farmers have difficulties with plant loss resulting from inaccurate stand counts. When requested what they might do with knowledge obtained from correct stand counts and the way this is able to profit them, roughly 80% mentioned that knowledge would allow them to regulate their weed and pest management measures and deal with low germination charges in time. The remaining 20% mentioned that correct stand counts would make it potential for them to confirm how efficient an externally carried out replanting was.
Plant Counts As we speak
Farmers sometimes carry out stand counts by strolling by the sector, which is vastly time-consuming and much from correct. What you see along with your bare eye may be many tons of or 1000’s of away from what you would have achieved.
When confronted with occasions that may have affected crop emergence, it’s essential to take motion rapidly. Inside a brief window of time, it’s essential to consider whether or not in-season course corrections are price the fee, or if it’s finest to cut back prices and let the sector run its course. However conventional floor sampling strategies provide little or no info by which to make these essential choices. They contain taking a pattern and extrapolating it throughout a whole subject, which might in a excessive margin of error. At finest, they provide a tough estimate of crop emergence.
One method to consider corn stands is the 1/1000th-acre technique. To acquire the variety of crops per acre, growers rely the variety of corn crops in a particular size of row (1/1000th of an acre) and multiply the quantity by 1000. That is then repeated in numerous places within the subject. One other technique of taking stand counts known as the wheel technique, the place 150 crops are counted whereas measuring the gap utilizing a measuring wheel. A number of areas are sampled within the subject, then the outcomes are extrapolated throughout all the subject.
So, what can stand counts actually assist me consider?
Correct stand counts are extremely priceless to offer perception into the next early season actions:
Planter efficacy. Was my planter working correctly? Do I must make any changes or repairs earlier than utilizing it on different fields?Early season hybrid efficiency, and indicators of pest or illness pressureAreas to re-plant“Agremo counting studies permit my agricultural purchasers to guage sowing and make sensible choices early within the season on precise info and exact counts. This undoubtedly brings a sure stage of confidence for everyone, and in addition makes my job as a drone service supplier rather more credible and appreciated” — Miguel Ángel Salgado, Common Supervisor & Mapping Knowledgeable at Ansar Drone, Mexico.

Winter Wheat: consider yield loss
When you’re working in an space that suffered a very chilly winter, it’s necessary to see how the crops are responding to the climate. As soon as the snow has melted or as soon as the chilly climate is over, carry out a plant inhabitants evaluation to find out yield loss.
Corn and soy: consider emergence and decide areas to re-plant (V2-V4)
Estimate sowing high quality and spot areas with low efficiency. The correct variety of crops and the placement of low-performing areas will inform you whether or not or to not replant, assess early losses, and consider planter efficiency.
Simply create a soybean stand rely report like this, to pinpoint areas of potential yield loss and take corrective motion at key instances in the course of the rising season.
