Let Us Show You.....
In the following case study, flooding in the field was detected using high-resolution aerial imagery.
Each instance of flooding verified on the ground was also confirmed by the georeferenced map products (synthesized natural color, color-infrared, and NDVI).
After collecting and processing the aerial data, the NDVI generated images were imported by the consultant into a leading farm management system.
Total acre counts were then generated, giving an accurate, quantifiable assessment for insurance and/or replanting purposes.
If the producer utilizes the information on the NDVI map, they will significantly reduce nitrogen use and costs.
Flat rate prescription: 15.0 gallons/acre
Virable rate average: 10.5 gallons/acre
Nitrogen reduction: 4.5 gallons/acre
COST SAVINGS IMPACT
Nitrogen cost: $4.40 acre x gallons/acre
Flat rate cost: (15 gal) $66.00/acre
Variable rate cost: (10.5 gal) $46.20/acre
Nitrogen cost savings: $19.9/acre
