Aerial imaging for vineyard management provides critical, actionable information on vine stress, vigor and disease, resulting in potential yield improvement and significant increases in vineyard revenue per acre. Drones fly closer to the ground than satellites or manned aircraft, resulting in greater positional accuracy and higher image resolution. The use of drones to assist in vineyard management has the potential to decrease operational costs improving yield and increasing revenue by up to $10,000 per acre per year. 

Soaring Vistas Media Aerial Imagery Applications for Viticulture and Agriculture include:

  • Monitoring vineyard and crop growth patterns for optimal quality and yield
  • Improving efficiency by directing attention to specific areas within each plot
  • Guiding field crews to problem areas with greater effectiveness
