DJI drones can be used in a myriad of ways to benefit growers and horticulturalists around the country. Both the Matrice series and the Mavic 2 Enterprise can be programmed to automatically fly a set way point route to  protect an orchard or vineyard from birds and other aerial pests. 

The Mavic 2 Enterprise is an efficient portable drone which can be equipped with a loudspeaker that records a siren to effectively manage and reduce the damage of birds on yields. The speaker is capable of recording high multi-pitch sounds specifically designed to scare birds or bats. By employing the GPS tracking feature, farmers can also set up waypoints to automate their operation. The Mavic 2 Enterprise can cover large areas quickly, mitigating bird numbers over vulnerable crops. It is also equipped with a powerful 4K Zoom camera that can simultaneously inspect the entire orchard on autopilot.

Advanced drones like the Matrice series can be equipped with different multi-spectral cameras which are used to capture data on plant health, phenotype and water stress. Certain cameras are able to develop high-precision spectral index measurements and run deep learning algorithms on crop data. Talk to our team to find out more.
