DWS – Agriculture

It is wasteful and expensive to feed the world’s population. 1/3 of the food produced is lost or wasted due to inefficiencies in harvesting, storage, packing, transport and infrastructure amounting to about 1.3 billion tons of food at an estimated cost of $1 trillion USD globally. 800 million people are chronically hungry, while 2 billion suffer from micronutrient deficiency.

DWS wants to partner with farmers and the agriculture community to help provide solutions to these protracted challenges. These solutions include:

  • Production of higher yields with less land, water and labor
  • Improve coordination within the value chain of rural farmers, which supports sustainable food production, reduces pre and post harvest losses
  • Facilitates market access and being paid more in favor of farmers and not the middle men
  • Increase access to DWS technologies and its applications for vulnerable and poor population

To that end, DWS operators can use airborne cameras to take multispectral images, capturing data from infrared and visual spectrum, combined to create a view of the crop that highlights differences between healthy and distressed plants in ways that can not be seen with the naked eye for better crop management.

The DWS agriculture inspections use high-resolution digital cameras, ultraviolet and infrared sensors to:

  • Detect and document our customers’ concerns by creating the DWS “Time Series Animation” that can show changes in the crop every week, every day or even every hour.
  • Provide precision fertilizer applications to boost yield and reduce costs, check the health of crops and avoiding crop losses through early identification and what DWS calls, its “Precision Intervention”
  • Herd cattle because humans cannot see them at night.
  • Provide mapping to capture accurate aerial imagery and transform them into 2-D maps or 3-D models of specific sites.
  • Reveal patterns that expose everything from irrigation problems to soil variation and pest and fungal infestations that are not apparent at eye level.

The DWS Crop and Field Analysis

  • Data Collection
    DWS collects the aerial data and images
  • Map Generation
    DWS turns the plant & field images into a 2D map by uploading them to a platform like Drone Deploy
  • Images Analysis
    DWS through its partners analyzes your fields & plants and present actionable insights for resolution
  • Field Management
    DWS personalizes your reports, shares your data & together, using our drones, we take immediate action for optimum results

STAND COUNTS
Determines the number of plants in a specific area and compares it to the expected results (per acre or hectare). Stand counts are particularly suitable for seasonable crops.

PLANT POPULATION
Provides information about the number of plants and is ideal for perennial plantations and orchards.

PLANT STRESS ANALYSIS
Find out how healthy your crop is at key times during the growing season to intervene in a timely manner.

WEED ANALYSIS
Identify weeds in time to optimize herbicide usage and prevent crop damage.

FLOWERING ESTIMATOR
Assess flowering levels to determine the exact growth stage of your plants, choose a proper harvesting date and other important crop management decisions

PLANT DISEASE ANALYSIS
Analyze crops at all growth stages to obtain valuable insights into your plant’s current condition.

WATER STRESS ANALYSIS
Spot areas with potential water stress and standing water to adjust your irrigation system before it affects your crop’s health.

PEST ANALYSIS
Pinpoint infested areas and apply pesticide only where and if needed.
