21 Oct Sentera Transforms Drone into Precision Scouting Tool with Phantom 3 NDVI Upgrade
Expand Phantom 3 Professional Capabilities to Capture Crop Health Data
Sentera is making precise crop health and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data affordable to every grower by enabling new and existing Phantom 3 Professional drones to capture NDVI data. Sentera’s Phantom 3 NDVI Upgrade seamlessly integrates Sentera’s proven Single Sensor with the popular DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone, creating an affordable precision scouting tool that captures color and NDVI imagery simultaneously.
Sentera’s Phantom 3 NDVI Upgrade
To stay competitive, growers require real-time visibility of crop health data while using existing or low-cost tools. Sentera’s Phantom 3 NDVI Upgrade directly supports this requirement.
“This season, growers successfully used the Phantom 3 NDVI Upgrade solution to help determine plant health and detect problems in the field, ultimately allowing them to decrease inputs while increasing their outputs,” said Kris Poulson, Vice President of Agriculture for Sentera.
Poulson explained, “Pairing our proven Sentera Single Sensor with a Phantom 3, an already prominent scouting tool for the agriculture community, is allowing growers to add NIR and NDVI capabilities to an existing farm tool at minimal expense. Something that was not possible, particularity at this price point, six months ago.”
Jeff Boersma, Pioneer Sales Representative at 212 Seed & Ag, commented, “This season, Sentera’s Phantom 3 NDVI upgrade allowed me to capture exceptional NIR and NDVI imagery and data which helped me help my customers increase ROI and make strategic input decisions.”
The Sentera Single Sensor is one of the smallest, lightest precision agriculture sensors available today, offering 10MP NDVI and a global shutter for crisp, clear aerial data collection. Incorporation of this precision sensor into a new or existing Phantom 3 drone was deliberately made to be quick and easy.
Upgrade your existing Phantom 3
Existing Phantom 3 drones are sent directly to Sentera in a pre-paid box where skilled engineers professionally integrate a high-precision Single Sensor into the drone. Alternatively, growers wishing to obtain a new Phantom 3 Professional drone with NDVI capabilities may purchase both items directly through Sentera at the same time, and engineers will integrate the Single Sensor prior to shipment. The process takes two business days upon receipt of an existing drone. Sentera’s Phantom 3 NDVI Upgrade is available today for $1,798. Visit Sentera to learn more and order the upgrade.
