What is drone-based pest analysis?
Do you have a problem with pest infestations caused by insects, mice, snails, or other organisms? Agremo pest analysis can help. Send us your 2D map, request a pest analysis, and tell us about the kind of problem you have, just like you would do when you go to see a doctor. We then send you the exact location of all problem areas, which allows you to take yield-saving corrective measures.
The reason why Agremo pest analysis is so effective?
One of the reasons drone data is a very effective way to spot pests is that the entire surface is analyzed, which includes the ground as well as the plants and crops. And to make sure you obtain relevant and actionable data, our pest analyses are conducted in close cooperation with professional agronomists.
To get conclusive results, it’s important to upload high-resolution images with around 0.9 in per pixel. If you’re not sure how to obtain crisp images, take a look at these mapping tips, or read the mapping tips from this professional drone operator.
Agremo pest analysis can be used to:
- Identify the precise location and area size of pest infestations
- Optimize pest control measures
- Spot pest infestations before they affect your current yield goal
When is the best time to use drone-based pest analysis?
Pest analysis is performed during mid-season and late-season tasks as part of the regular plant and crop monitoring cycle in order to make sure your plants and crops are healthy during the entire growth cycle.

What are the benefits of drone-based pest analysis?
There are several benefits that drone-based pest analysis have compared to traditional measures.
Drone-based pest analysis is:
- Fast and save time and resources
- Able to cover around 500 acres in less than two hours
- Accurate – with error rates lower than 2%. And with drones, you can analyze every inch of your field
- Proactive and allow effective in-season corrective measures.
The pest analysis above was performed on a strawberry field and revealed the exact location of pest-infested areas, which saves the grower both time and money.
