The ongoing digitalization and technology development are opening up new possibilities for the agricultural industry. One of these revolutionary innovations is the use of multispectral drone image data, which play an essential role in assessing various features such as plant diseases, spectral vegetation indices, and much more. At Pheno-Inspect, we already use standard RGB cameras to solve many daily challenges but are continuously expanding our capabilities to efficiently process multispectral data on a large scale.
Why multispectral image data?
Multispectral cameras capture light in different wavelength ranges, allowing the detection of color features hidden from the human eye. This information can be crucial for early identification of plant diseases, monitoring the condition of vegetation, or detecting specific objects in the field.
Some application examples:
- Plant diseases: By using multispectral drone image data, we can quickly and efficiently detect plant diseases such as powdery mildew, rust, or fungal infections before they spread across the field. This allows farmers to take timely countermeasures and optimize the yield of their crops.
- Spectral vegetation indices: Indices such as NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), NDRE (Normalized Difference Red Edge), and others help assess the vitality and condition of the vegetation. They enable us to plan targeted measures such as fertilization or irrigation and thus use resources more efficiently.
- Detection of specific objects: Multispectral data can also be used to identify specific objects in the field, such as crop residues, soil conditions, or infrastructure.
Digital experts for multispectral image data
At Pheno-Inspect, we develop “digital experts” capable of evaluating specific color features from multispectral image data and processing them automatically. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, we optimize the detection of diseases, stress, or other agricultural features to provide valuable information to farmers and agricultural professionals.
The use of multispectral drone image data opens up new possibilities for the agricultural industry to use resources more efficiently and optimize yields. Pheno-Inspect is proud to be at the forefront of this innovation and support agriculture through advanced technologies and intelligent data processing.
