Agrible® and Crop Copter are two Central Illinois companies teaming up to change how growers collect and share information about their fields. They are going one step further to bring you aerial-insights with the power of Morning Farm Report® and Crop Copter drones, right to your fingertips. Agrible’s Pocket Drone Control is an iOS app that lets you quickly see how much damage your field has following a weather event or pest stress.
When the app is linked with fields in your Morning Farm Report account, you can launch the Crop Copter drone with just a few easy taps. The drone can cover an 80-acre field in less than 15 minutes, all on one battery with life to spare. After the drone takes photos, you can quickly classify damage as hail, disease, drift, flooding, etc. Then, the data uploads to Morning Farm Report where you can access and share it at any time with others in your operation.
It all boils down to helping growers save time and money, all in one place, with one unique app. “If they [insurance adjusters] can see the areas that are definitely down, there will be a better way to quantify that and come up with some numbers,” 5th generation farmer, Joe Rothermel, explained after a drone flew his corn field following a bad wind storm.
The app is free with an existing Morning Farm Report account and purchased drone from Crop Copter. Contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
