“Drones’ role in agriculture increasing”

NIR & Visible Camera Imaging

“Dwayne Reed has a hard time imagining his job as an agricultural consultant without the use of a cellphone and drone.”

‘It’s all about plant health,’ Reed said. ‘Plants reflect and absorb light. Cameras measure the wavelength and with normalized difference vegatation index, near infrared, cameras, you can see that a healthy plant reflects more of the near-infrared light. A stressed plant absorbs more of the light.’
