We analyze precisely collected images of crops from fixed wing aircraft and drones, leveraging the latest near-infrared and thermal cameras to detect crop vigor, variability, and pests and diseases on any sized farm
The images and data taken during each capture are stored in the Pollen PrecisionView platform and analyzed by Pollen Agricultural Technologists with our patented agricultural analysis systems
You receive detailed reports, timely feedback and recommendations to help your farm be as efficient, productive, and profitable as possible.

RTK and NTRIP "Level Up Accuracy" at Pollen Systems
As anyone who has navigated by their phone knows, standalone GPS can be inaccurate to tens of feet. In order to measure individual plant growth in a crop, we needed to improve both our capture mechanisms and our analytics to filter out ground cover and other obstacles from the data required to collect accurate sample data on each and every flight.
At Pollen Systems, we aim to collect data that is ever more accurate than could be obtained with previous generations of technology. We have invested in natively supporting Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) positioning for our aerial imagery as the next step onward and upward!Read more
Pollen Systems Named 2021 Top Seattle Agricultural Data Technology Startup
Agriculture and technology may seem like an odd pair, but it’s a pairing that makes a lot of sense (and cents) when you think about it. Pollen Systems offers robots and drones that collect and analyze agricultural data and help farmers “optimize crop yields, vitality and evenness”.
Pollen Systems helps farmers increase their profits by using accurate data on harvest performance, allowing them to analyze growth problems. This allows growers to have more control over their crops and, as a result, have a more abundant yield.Read more
On the Veraison: Precision Monitoring for Wine Grapes
Wine grapes are one of the most carefully managed crops in the world, so they made the perfect starting point for Pollen Systems when we started flying in 2018. From the beginning, we have sought to help vineyard managers and winemakers obtain the data they need to cultivate high-quality grapes, leveraging the power of drones, fixed-wing aircraft, and the PrecisionView™ Manager system.
We approach each site with a standard vineyard monitoring plan, tailoring it to suit the grower’s needs.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.
