Agribotix: UAVs and Image Processing Services for Precision Agriculture
Agribotix is a drone or UAV-based remote sensing company that provides imaging and analysis to agricultural clients interested in advanced precision techniques. We offer a turn-key solution, from our ultra-reliable hardware to our leading cloud-based image processing solution, to get you affordable, high resolution, and timely images and maps of your fields that allow you to increase efficiencies. Our ultimate product is actionable intelligence that results in substantially reduced inputs for your farm. We offer prescription maps for in season top-dress, weed reports for geolocating resistant patches and estimating coverage, and a number of other specialized products. All of this is available by seasonal lease, ensuring you always have the most advanced technology on your farm.

Agribotix UAV Lease
The Agribotix engineering team has developed the Hornet, a rugged, low-cost UAV airframe suitable for agricultural applications that is available for a seasonal lease. Rather than invest tens of thousands of dollars in owning a UAV, why not lease one from Agribotix? The Hornet is based around a flying wing design that eliminates all of the hassles associated with assembling a more traditional airframe in the field and, as an added bonus, stands up much better to use and abuse. Setup time from the back of the truck to in the air above your field is 10 minutes, allowing you to easily integrate this important tool into your existing workflow. Furthermore, the Hornet launches using a simple bungee system, rather than a complicated catapult, dramatically simplifying operations. Learn how you can lease a Hornet on our Services page.
Agribotix Color, NIR, and Thermal Sensors
The Agribotix Hornet UAV carries either a color (RGB), infrared (NIR), or (coming soon) thermal camera that collects a series of stills. These high resolution instruments collect 3 cm ground resolution images at at typical flight altitude. The color images are generally used for diagnosing gross farm problems like drainage issues. The images collected by the infrared camera are used to generate Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) images that are primarily used for generating fertilizer prescription maps, but have been extensively used for crop scouting, weed identification, and yield estimations. Check out our Precision Agriculture Blog to learn how some of our customers have been using these images.
Agribotix Image Processing Services
Agribotix developers have deployed an intuitive software solution to deliver easily viewable georeferenced aerial images immediately after your flight and high resolution color and NDVI maps of your farm within hours of collection. These images are hosted on our servers for easy access from multiple devices and easily imported into Google Earth for mobile devices, allowing you to take them with you while scouting your field, and precision ag software suites like SST, AgLeader SMS, and Soilmap, for more complicated GIS applications.
