AirScout is the U.S.-based brainchild of Indiana farmer, pilot and inventor, Brian Sutton. His work of over a decade has resulted in a stunning breakthrough in agricultural aerial imagery, AirScout® Thermal™ Imagery.
Sutton noticed that when a corn crop is most vulnerable to problems it’s also the toughest to ground scout for problems. The intervention window is very small, and there’s no chance to replant. These are some of the reasons he learned to fly at age 13.
Leader in Proactive Crop Management
Today the result of his work is AirScout. And AirScout delivers what we call Proactive Crop Management. In fact, in a world of “me-too’s” there’s nothing else quite like it.
AirScout features patented advanced thermal imaging that measures variations in plant temperatures within a given field. With it you can see where pest and disease problems are just beginning to break out.
Then you ground truth areas AirScout images show you by using the AirScout App. Crop problems can be solved long before damage becomes severe. Imagine the savings in a bad disease or pest year.
Setting New Standards of Performance
AirScout represents the most significant advance in precision farming in a long time. It puts diagnostic and prescription writing tools directly into the hands of the farmer and agronomist.
With advance warning of emerging crop problems, weeks ahead, not days such as with NDVI, intervention input costs are reduced and yields maximized. That’s the value of AirScout, The Proactive Crop Management Tool. You’ll see the value right in your bottom line.
From Reactive to Proactive Crop Management
AirScout helps producers shift from reactive crop management mode to proactive crop management, where you solve problems when they first appear–before real damage is done.
