DJI always provides an up-to-date, high resolution aerial data solution that maximizes yields  and minimizes costs with drone mapping. Mavic Pro, a drone mapping, has abiltity to compile plants count and establishment checks, detect weeds/disease or parasites and fungi, measure nitrogen and biomass.

With fast data processing and the ability to fly in variable weather conditions, DJI Mavic Pro allows farmers to work with the latest crop data, including crop stress and crop health issues on farming properties. Then export it in industry standard formats for variable rate nitrogen or pesticide prescriptions.
