Precision Viticulture using Drones
The combination of multi-spectral, aerial images and samples taken from the vineyards produces highly informative maps for the improvement of the cultivation.
As airborne remote sensor platforms, drones assist with the application of vegetation indices (NDVI, EVI) and the mapping derived giving sugar, anthocyanin and acid content, as well as treatment plans for the application of fertiliser and irrigation. This enables qualitative, as well as quantitative harvest predictions to be made.
The remote sensor data gathered by drones is evaluated using scientific analysis tools in close collaboration with university research institutes, which provides a basis for concrete statements on the health of the vines, plant vitality and plant stress levels. It’s also possible to disperse starlings at the same time – a welcome addition to the range of application and the performance package.
