With so many possibilities around, it might seem difficult to determine the best way to work as a drone operator and make a living out of it.
As pioneers of drone data processing, we’ve had the chance to talk and work with hundreds of drone operators. What we came to see is that many of them shared a similar fate: many have great drones, they’re licensed drone operators, but still seem to miss out on mapping jobs and regular clients.
What can they do?
Well, if you’re looking to make a living as a drone operator and have regular clients, agriculture is a great field to work in.
More and more farmers are recognizing the value of drone technology for them, and many drone operators we met confirmed that farmers are sometimes skeptical in the beginning, but once they see a drone report of their fields, they immediately ask for more.
The reason behind it is simple: farmers can benefit a lot from drone data.
Drone-based stand counts help farmers with yield estimations and spotting low germination rates. Flowering reports help them optimize and save on pesticide usage and find the best possible harvesting time. Plant disease analyses help spot pest outbreaks before they affect yield — just to name a few examples.
In short: Drone data seals the deal.
Plus, it’s easy to get. All you need to do is upload your map to a drone data processing software like Agremo and request an analysis. With Agremo, you can get to work immediately — no prior software installation required!
What you’ll need:
- a drone-collected map of your field (if you’d just like to have a look at the app first, no problem — there are a several demo fields you can browse through)
- a decent internet connection
- a nice cup of coffee.
By the time you’ve finished your coffee, your report will be on the way!
