ABOUT US

A Passion for Farming

TP-32 FORMATION-SPRAYING

Precision agriculture (PA) is an approach to farm management that uses specialized equipment, software and Information Technology (IT) services to ensure that the crops and soil receive exactly what they need for optimum health and productivity. The goal of PA is to ensure profitability, sustainability and protection of the environment.

Our end-to-end solution makes it easier to count plants, measure plant height, assess crop health and monitor field performance.

Plant-Counting: not only are drone maps considerably faster and less labour-intensive compared to ground scouting, but with machine learning to lean on, you know you will get consistent, trustworthy results.


Yield Prediction: by collecting and analysing plant health data points, including the plant-counts, the generated reports accurately forecast yield based on surveys of row-based plants.


Aerial Imagery to Assess Damage and Mitigate Loss: we also help identify standing water in pre-emergent fields, determine possible flood damage, and monitor permanent water features to improve the accuracy of insurance claims and/or yield forecasting.


Our ultimate vision is to provide farmers with bespoke high-tech drone-based agronomy services, at affordable prices.

AERIAL SURVEY

Clear and Concise

High resolution images of the farm are taken from multiple vantage points. Through processing these images, a photogrammetry software can then create orthomosaics and 3D models, from which it can measure accurate distance, as well as surfaces and volumes of physical objects.
We shall also help identify standing water in pre-emergent fields, determine possible flood damage, and monitor permanent water features to improve the accuracy of insurance claims and/or yield forecasting

CROP SCOUTING AND ANALYSIS

Speed and Accuracy

Ours is a web-based portal designed specifically for agriculture users. It
automatically processes aerial imagery into 2D maps and 3D elevation models, features a continuously expanding library of on-demand analysis tools, and
makes sharing data easy and even easier to count plants, measure plant height and monitor field performance. Not only are drone maps considerably faster and less labour-intensive compared to ground scouting, but with machine learning to lean on, you know you will get consistent, trustworthy results.

CROP SPRAYING

Safe and Simple

Spraying with drones is a unique practice since it is conducted autonomously.
Our Drone-Sprayers are equipped with almost all the parts of any other sprayer: a tank, a pump to push liquid through the hoses to the nozzles, filters and a pressure gauge.
And with a payload of only 18 litres, are able to cover at least 20 acres.
We improve application timeliness, reduce the need for skilled labour and cut hand-held sprayer operators’ exposure to harmful agro-chemicals.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Get Informed

WHAT IS A DRONE?

A drone, which can go by several other names, including unmanned aerial vehicle, unmanned aircraft, or Remotely-Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS), is an aircraft operated without the possibility of direct human intervention from within or on the aircraft. Commercially available drones that are used for recreational purposes typically are powered by batteries, are controlled by a ground-based control device that communicates with the drone by radio, and may have a limited ability to fly without direct inputs from the ground-based operator.

DO I NEED PERMISSION TO FLY DRONES?

All drone flights through controlled airspace can only happen with the permission of the KCAA or from the appropriate authority. If a drone is to be used for commercial purposes, whoever is responsible for flying the drone must get an appropriate KCAA certification for commercial drone pilots.Commercial drone operators who intend to perform flights that deviate from regulations that cover commercial drone operations would have to get a waiver from the KCAA to do so. (https://kcaa.or.ke/safety-%26-security-oversight/unmanned-aircraft-systems)
