Pest analysis

What are drone-based pest analyses?

Do you have a problem with pest infestations caused by insects, mice, snails or other organisms? Agremo pest analyses can help. Send us your 2D map, request a pest analysis and tell us about the kind of problem you have, just like you would do when you go see a doctor. We then send you the exact location of all problem areas, which allows you to take yield-saving corrective measures.

The reason why Agremo pest analyses are so effective?

One of the reasons drone data is a very effective way to spot pest is that the entire surface is analyzed, which includes the ground as well as the plants and crops. And to make sure you obtain relevant and actionable data, our pest analyses are conducted in close cooperation with professional agronomists.

To get conclusive results, it’s important to upload high-resolution images with around 0.9in per pixel. If you’re not sure how to obtain crisp images, take a look at these mapping tips or read the mapping tips from this professional drone operator.

Agremo pest analyses can be used to:

  • Identify the precise location and area size of pest infestations
  • Optimize pest control measures
  • Spot pest infestations before they affect your current yield goal

 

When is the best time to use drone-based pest analyses?

Pest analyses are performed during mid-season and late-season tasks as part of the regular plant and crop monitoring cycle in order to make sure your plants and crops are healthy during the entire growth cycle.

What are the benefits of drone-based pest analyses?

There are several benefits that drone-based pest analyses have compared to traditional measures.

Drone-based pest analyses are:

  • Fast and save time and resources
  • Able to cover around 500 acres in less than two hours
  • Accurate – with error rates lower than 2%. And with drones, you are able to analyze every inch of your field
  • Proactive and allow effective in-season corrective measures.
