Precision Data Collection
We map out your fields and IoT device locations on the Esri ArcGIS™ platform.
We add layers: aerial imagery, soil maps, topography, and more.
Bring Your Own Drone (BYOD) Data, or we can source Drone Flyers with near-infrared and thermal cameras to collect and upload aerial imagery.
Data and Images are managed in our PrecisionView™ platform.
We segment and track data analytics at the individual plant, partial or full row, or block level.
PrecisionView™ portal highlights crop vigor and variability, water stress and pest and disease pressure on any size farm.
You receive detailed reports and recommendations to help your farm be as efficient, productive, and profitable as possible.
Your crop quality and crop yield improves, sometimes 20% or more.
Reduce costs by optimizing your water, pesticides, and fertilizer with precision.
DroneHive is the leading drone service provider for aerial data collection, facilitating the collection of actionable aerial data enabling businesses to make more efficient operational decisions without the time, cost, complexities, or burden of an internal aviation department.
The Science of Where™
Pollen Systems is a long-term partner of Esri. The company’s revitalized brand platform—defined by its new tagline—The Science of Where—defines our shared vision for GIS.

Per-Pixel Analysis to Detect Almond Bloom
In pursuit of the most accurate yield prediction methods, growers often look to early indicators of fruit set, such as bloom density, to provide insights. This is usually a lengthy, labor-intensive, and error-prone process with a narrow bloom window during which data can be collected. With multispectral imaging, targeted drone data captures, and advanced pixel-level analytics, Pollen Systems is making bloom detection faster and more consistent on a per-plant basis to help growers improve their yield prediction results.
In a nutshell, the analysis uses the color characteristics of almond blooms to target specific pixels in our imagery to calculate yield.Read more
Understanding Near-Infrared Imagery in Precision Agriculture
Near-Infrared (NIR) imaging has been assisting scientists and growers for decades, providing a technological lens to examine crops. Most famously used on orbital satellites for environmental observations, NIR imaging has developed into highly portable and powerful technology used by commercial growers around the world.
But how does Near-Infrared imaging help growers effectively protect their fields against today’s challenges?
In modern precision agriculture, specialized drones carry cameras targeting specific wavelengths of light.Read more
Empowering Farm Management through Individual Plant Analysis
Individual Plant Analysis is at the forefront of precision agriculture for a reason: it provides the most detailed data layer possible and improves decision-making for an entire field. Today, Pollen Systems' Advanced Agricultural Analytics serve growers in three major ways.
Optimizing Harvest: Mapping our vigor metrics like NDVI, NDRE, and thermal across a site highlights nutrient deficiencies, pests, and water stress that can be roadblocks to the perfect harvest. Impacts to Crop yield and uniformity are major concerns for large- and small-scale growers alike, and our reports empower timely, targeted management to support weaker areas.Read more

We’re using Pollen Systems aerial flyovers to help promote vineyard uniformity and to quickly identify and address irrigation issues. Our goal at Quintessence is to produce the highest quality wine grapes possible so our customers can produce world class Red Mountain Washington wines.
Marshall Edwards, Vineyard Operation Manager, Quintessence Vineyard
Our biggest challenges are water conservation and optimizing water stress and consistent vigor in our wine grapes. The collection and analysis of the types of imaging captured by Pollen Systems, the communication, timeliness and the ability to be out at the same time every week created a customer-service driven solution that met our needs.

Sierra Gold Nurseries produces and sells millions of containerized and bareroot fruit and nut trees each year. At our scale, and particularly for the crops that we work with, traceability through each stage of plant development is critical in assuring plant health and quality. Pollen Systems’ platform aligns with our datasets. The aerial imagery provided by the drone flights and analytical software supports our decision making by allowing us to track plant health and uniformity at the per individual plant level. We view their solutions as leading the current technological wave of innovation in improving crop traceability and quality.
Josh Puckett, Director of Propagation, Sierra Gold Nurseries
We’ve been working with Pollen Systems for the past year to provide us with independent analysis of our biostimulant applications throughout the United States. Pollen’s precision agriculture, drone-based per plant analytics provide us actionable metrics that demonstrate how our applications affect canopy growth and yield across a wide variety of crops.
