Optimizing crop yield, vigor and uniformity

Active Scouting

We capture precise images of crops using satellites, 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

Data Analysis

The images and data taken during each capture are stored in the Pollen Cloud and analyzed by Pollen Agriculture Technicians with our patent-pending agricultural analysis software

Proactive Alerts

You receive detailed reports, timely feedback and recommendations to help your farm be as efficient, productive, and profitable as possible.

Data with Drew: Vegetation Indices

The cameras we use on fixed wing and drone aircraft capture visual picture images (RGB), near infrared images (NIR), and thermal images. A formula is used to analyse the NIR data returned and provides Pollen Systems with two main metrics to measure plant vigor: NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) and NDRE (Normalized Difference Red Edge). These vegetation indices are each unique ways to assess the health of your fields, and offer helpful insights for farm management...
