The Parrot Bluegrass Fields Quadcopter for Agriculture is a crop mapping and analysis tool that can quickly provide actionable data to farmers, retailers, insurers, and anyone else who works directly within the agriculture industry. The Bluegrass Fields obtains its information via two included sensors. There's a 14MP visual sensor that's capable of taking hi-res photos and capturing video at up to Full HD 1080p60 quality, and a multispectral sensor that reads red, green, red edge, and near infrared wavelengths emanating from the field.
The Bluegrass Fields drone is capable of flying high for coverage of up to 65 hectares at 400' to get a bird's-eye view of large fields such as wheat, barley, or corn. It can also fly as low as 32' to give more precise pictures of crops such as strawberries, blueberries, or grapes. Three batteries are included for a maximum flight time of approximately 75 minutes. While out in the field, its carbon fiber construction helps to ensure it can withstand the elements.
When out in the field, you can utilize the ParrotFields mobile app to help you perform a variety of essential tasks, such as fully automating your flights or generating NDVI maps in real time. Once the data is collected, use the Pix4Dfields desktop and cloud software to analyze the results. The insights you gain can lead to revelations in crop trends, optimizations in fertilizer applications, and more. With Bluegrass Fields you get a free 1-year subscription to both applications.
