Plant Disease Analysis
What is drone-based plant disease analysis?
Agremo plant disease analyses identify the percentage and the exact location of plant diseases caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria.
Agremo closely examines your plants and crops by analyzing various visual reactions, such as changes in colors or the percentage of missing leaves. It’s important to us that your analysis provides you with accurate and actionable insights on your plant’s health, which is why we conduct plant disease analyses 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 plant disease analyses can be used to:
- Identify the precise location and size of problem areas
- Optimize treatments and preventive measures (fungicide, insecticide, etc.)
- Spot diseases before they affect your current yield goal.
When is the best time to use drone-based plant disease analyses?
Plant disease analyses are 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.
For more information on stand counts for specific crops, see the mapping calendars in the Example section.
What are the benefits of drone-based plant disease analyses?
There are several benefits that drone-based plant disease analyses have compared to traditional measures.
Drone-based plant disease analyses are:
- 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 following plant disease analysis was performed on a corn field and revealed that 34% of the field showed signs of stress disease. The result map on the second page shows their exact location. Take a look at the plant disease example report!

Agremo makes significant efforts to keep the underlying workflow as proficient and precise as possible, but there are numerous limiting factors which cannot be foreseen, excluded, or modified. Such limiting factors can affect the results of the analyses and include low image quality, complex natural phenomena, diseases which cannot be captured with today’s technology, etc.
