From the company Sentera ( https://sentera.com ) a Minneapolis company. The drone takes a picture approximately every acre and estimates the population, which in turn I did random ground truthing.
This is a corn field planted fixed rate at 35,000 pop
The first image is what product Sentera delivers and the second image I exported Sentera's data into another GIS software to get an interpolated image of population trends.
These 2 fields have completely different crop rotations (there is a tree line that separates the field) . It was interesting to see how alike stand counts follows from one field to the next. Also the prevailing winds are from the North west and how the yard improved the emergence by either letting the soil warm faster and /or better moisture that allowed better germination.
The pattern is real...now will it equate to yield?
