Agricultural Drones for Sale Australia -
In Australia, new technologies are revolutionizing the use of aerial mapping, survey and inspection in agriculture through using cutting-edge drone technology. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or known as ‘drones’, bring through agricultural professionals to cost-effectively gather crop health information without waiting for satellite passes or paying the high costs of manned-aircraft flights. 

Agricultural drones for sale Australia also well-equipped for any drone related work from general aerial photography, sensors and modules such as infrared, multispectral/NVDI and lidar which can integrate with the PIX4D software to provide full a huge range of functionality.

Whether farmers are looking for visual or thermal asset inspections, high-resolution 3D aerial maps, and others requiring airborne sensing, Australian agricultural drone for sale is the best technology in a bid to grow better crops in bigger volumes and  high-quality of crops. Australian drones provide a method for quicker and more affordable inspection of tall or inaccessible structures, while keeping staff out of harm’s way. Reduce inspection costs and help farmers to make decisions about the management of their crops and their preventative maintenance schedule such as whether more or less fertilizer should be used in some areas and whether some sections should be sprayed to wipe out pest disease.

Drones can collect high-quality 3D mapping data at resolutions measured in just inches per pixel. Data captured on a frequent basis enables better management, faster and more informed decision making, and provides farmers and agronomists to map the health and vigor of crops today as well as observing how that crop is changing over time.

The use of UAV Drones for inspection services to the survey, forestry, precision agriculture, farming, industrial and natural resource management and crop management is exploding nationally. Drones have a unique advantage in being able to provide live data from a range of sensors (including multispectral, NIR and LiDAR) to perform in-depth analysis of crop health and more. Rise Above are a one stop shop for agriculture drone systems; agricultural drones for sale Australia have a range of fixed wing and multirotor models which dominate the market with their performance, and a range of software options to match.

Most Australian drones was certified by CASA, maintains the strictest safety systems and is fully agricultural insured for public liability, professional indemnity and workcover. Australian drone is one of the most experienced drone having completed over 2000 flights to date, many in remote and challenging environments.

Some of the Australian Drones for sale

Top agricultural drones in Australia: AgEagle UAV system, Flamingo UAV, and Fazer R are some of the best agricultural UAV drones.
  • The AgEagle UAV system Lyons

AgEagle comes with approximately 45 to 60 minutes (depending upon winds) of flight time that can cover up to 500 hectares to capture and process in flight Near Infrared (NIR) or NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) images. An on-board camera with built-in GPS snaps a collage of up to 1000 digital photos that are melded into a single high-resolution image. It is a tool that farmers and agronomists can use to quickly and efficiently create aerial imagery depicting the health of the crops. The best part is that the aerial images can be used by popular farm management software tools to create prescription and zone maps that precision sprayers can use to optimize chemical and nutrient application with today's precision tractors.

  • Flamingo UAV

For surveys over larger properties, operators can use commercially available RPAs such as the Flamingo UAV manufactured by Silvertone and adaptable to farmer's requirements, an Australian pioneer in radio controlled model aircraft. The Flamingo weighs up to 20 kg, has a 4 m wingspan, a top speed of 78 kt and an endurance of up to 10 hours.

  • Fazer R
Yama Fazer R
New unmanned aerial vehicles named FAZER R was announced by leading company Yamaha Motor Co. Ltd specially designed for the agricultural sector, having ability to spray chemicals over four hectares of land without the need to reload or refuel. It can also carry a load of 32 liters of spray allowing significant increases in efficiency and labor saving for agricultural spraying. FAZER-R also dons the title of the ‘largest ever’ in Yamaha Motor's range of industrial-use unmanned aerial vehicles.
