The normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) is a simple graphical indicator that can be used to analyze remote sensing measurements, and assess whether the target being observed contains live green vegetation or not.

 Zelm Aerospace uses this to find distressed areas in your field, and suggest interventions to fix those areas.  For every major area of distress we find on imagery, we go to it on foot to "ground truth" the data, ensuring that our recommendations are based on real time, factual data.  

Using our services will greatly reduce the need to treat entire fields.  This reduces the amount of nitrogen used overall, which reduces erosion, environmental impact, and the cost of buying and distributing fertilizer.  On the back end, this also increases your yield, as those distressed areas that normally would produce little to nothing, would then be able to produce viable crops. 

With state of the art sensor technology and mapping software, Zelm Aerospace can provide you with a massive variety of services throughout the growing season, at a low flat rate that includes it all.

How do we do this?  We use Sentera sensors and AgVault™ software to give you the most accurate data from your field, on the spot.
