In-Season Aerial Imagery
Feb 12, 2020
Aerial imagery can be an excellent in-season tool to help producers best manage their fields during the growing season. In-season images provide information on plant health and biomass and research shows that in-season images often correlate to crop yield, providing another layer to use in creating sampling zones, variable-rate seeding maps or fertilizer applications. This allows for targeted, precision applications based on growing patterns and needs.
Benefits and applications of in-season imagery include:
- Provides birds-eye view of crop
- Excellent scouting and trouble-shooting tool
- In-season images often correlate to crop yield, providing another layer to use in creating sampling zones, VR seeding maps, yield potential, etc.
- Monitor irrigation operation and identify issues
- Cotton growth regulator/defoliant applications
- Use to direct in-season tissue sampling and/or foliar nutrient applications
- Monitor and record storm, hail, and flood damage
- Create sampling zones for fertility applications
Once collected, processed in-season images are available through AccuField within 24-48 hours and our staff is here to support and assist locations and their growers in using the imagery for crop management.

“Farmers are crunching their numbers, but they can’t forget that when they harvest a crop, they’re taking nutrients off the acre, and those nutrients have to be replaced for the next crop,” says Nathan Barnett, Regional Manager, Ag Technologies, for GreenPoint Ag.
