Worried about crop health? Cloudpoint Aerial Services has you covered!

Cloudpoint Aerial Services is excited to introduce new imagery capabilities! We've recently added a drone to our growing fleet, but what makes this drone special is the camera that it carries. The Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is a way to collect data regarding plant health and live vegetation by calculating the amount of visible and near-infrared light that is reflected off of a each plant. By doing this, we can now show which plants are healthier than others. I could explain it all day, but it's probably easier to just show you some imagery.

 Here you can see an example of NDVI imagery. Although you can adjust the colors to your liking, healthier plants show up as various shades of green, and the red hues reflect plants that are struggling.

With this new feature, we have expanded the geospatial services that we offer. We already have GIS solutions for agriculture land assessment, and now we can help farmers increase their yields with the NDVI. Are you a farmer who's looking to take your crop management to the next level? Contact us today at 877-377-8124 or cloudpointgeo.com/drones to learn more.

Also, a special thanks to Mike & Eric Hoeft and Stewart Family Farms who were kind enough to let us fly their test plots.
