West central illinois
What is needed in a drone and software to asses stand counts in corn and soybeans? Also what is available to asses weed pressure in a field with a drone? I've read on Sentera's website about their ability to do both, but didn't see many details on what drone and camera were needed. I've used drone deploy in the past with my phantom 3 advanced and realize to do stand counts I would at least need a phantom 4 of some kind for drone deploy.
For those who have done stand counts, did you have to fly lower or slower than normal to do so and do you feel it was accurate?
Got my phantom 3 adv last summer and used drone deploy. I liked the stitching and photos I got from it but would like to asses stand counts and see where weeds are at in a field. Getting some useful data would be nice instead of just pictures.
