What is FieldAgent?

FieldAgent is Sentera’s robust software platform. FieldAgent is a powerful tool that allows you to scout your crops, capturing health and vegetation index data in near real time. Use FieldAgent to analyze and assess your field, and share data with trusted advisors. By utilizing a Sentera NDVI, NDRE, or multispectral sensor to collect crop health data, FieldAgent can generate maps and shapefiles so you have fast, actionable data ready to export to your fleet of tools.

Why should I use it?

FieldAgent is an ideal platform for agronomists, consultants, and growers. It allows you to digitally map your fields and perform powerful analytics right at the field’s edge so you can take action instantly. Plus, FieldAgent exports data directly to the cab of your tractor or other tools, increasing operational efficiency.

Gathering actionable data you can use to inform decisions is a simple four-step process:

1. Fly
2. Assess
3. Share
4. Take Action

1. Fly

Using FieldAgent Mobile, you can be up and flying in under a minute. Unpack your precision scouting drone, highlight where you want to fly, set your flight parameters and press “Start”. Your drone will automatically carry out your flight plan and return to you upon completion.

2. Assess

After your drone lands, import your images into the FieldAgent desktop app. FieldAgent handles the rest, producing QuickTile® health maps in seconds with the option to generate fully stitched mosaics and elevation maps.
