Disease infestation detection with drones (3/6)

Timely detection of onset of an infection in crops could mean safeguard against a disappointing loss of crops. While small farmers could still rely on visual infection, for large farms it is not possible.

 That’s where drones combined with Computer Vision are helping farmers in detecting areas of a crop field which are infested with disease and then apply remedial measures on a timely basis.

Specially useful for crops which have a high density of plants per acre, where the chances are that many a times some individual plant would escape the routine normal eyesight inspection.
