Boosting Hemp Production With Multispectral Imagery

Arbor Drone will be participating in a webinar April 24, 2019 to discuss hemp production with Drew Baustian, Business Development Manager for Micasense. The webinar will be for the purpose of:

  •  Learn about modern, specialty precision agriculture tailored to your needs to improve crop quality and yields.

  •  Learn to ask the right questions to make a decision on whether to buy your own drones and equipment or hire a pilot.

  • Learn about the specialized needs of your crop and how to fulfill these needs with appropriate remote sensing equipment and analysis tools for outdoor hemp operations.

Arbor Drone LLC and Spectrabotics LLC, collected data using drone flights over northwest Longmont on August 9, 2018, to study and monitor trees affected by Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Longmont will be one of the last EAB detection flights for 2018 for the team. Drone flights in urban areas to study tree pests have never been conducted at this scale.

Boulder, CO (July 13, 2017) – Drones are joining the fight against the emerald ash borer in Colorado. Denver is funding researchers from Colorado College and a Colorado Springs-based startup called Spectrabotics to use data collected from drones that they hope will help save Ash trees.

The EAB is tiny, but the insect is responsible for the death of millions of ash trees across 27 states. “If you catch trees in early stages of infestation you can often save that tree,” said Dan Staley.

He’s an urban forester leading an effort to save ash trees in Colorado. He heads up Arbor Drone LLC. “We’re taking techniques that are used in precision agriculture right now and adapting them to the urban forest,” he said...
