Whilst aerial drone use is not a new phenomenon for the likes of topographical surveys and 3D mapping; the use of drones in agriculture is still a relatively new one.

The uses of thermal imaging in agriculture are vast. And with this new and cost effective method of aerial inspection and survey, drone use is changing the way that the agriculture industry operates.

What can thermal imaging aerial drones be used for in agriculture?

Germinating seeds, irrigation levels, disease detection, yield estimates and even the ripeness of fruit are all detectable with thermal imaging cameras and UAV drones.
