Deveron Research Agronomist Featured in FCC AgriSuccess

Deveron’s Research Agronomist, Jacob Nederend, was reached for comment in the January 2019 edition of FCC’s AgriSuccess magazine. The article “Eyes in the sky monitor crop health” by Peter Gredig  looks at the differences between satellite and UAV remote sensing. From the article:

Deveron UAS Corp. is a Canadian-based company that uses aerial drones to collect and analyze NDVI and other data to help farmers monitor their crops. “Depending on the task at hand, a closer look at a crop using a drone might be warranted, especially at critical timings such as in-season nitrogen applications or disease management,” says Jacob Nederend, a research agronomist with Deveron UAS. “Drone image services cost a bit more, but go beyond what satellites can do when trying to assess things like emergence or plant counts.”

“Beyond the in-season value of monitoring crop health for scouting and crop protection decisions, these images can help with soil sampling and zone management strategies for next season,” Nederend says. The other advantage to using a service like Deveron is that they own and fly the drones so farmers don’t have to. They generate the field imagery and make it available via smartphone for $2 to $3 per acre per pass.
