Is a drone a fit for your farm? Find out with Online Calculator

Published:

To drone or not to drone? That seems to be the question on many farmers’ minds as they try to figure out if this new technology will provide a return on investment for their farm.

With Measure’s Drone Flight Calculator, farmers can model their fields and determine whether drone imaging is right for them.

The Drone Flight Calculator will calculate:

  • The basic cost of drone flights per acre.
  • How you can apply fertilizer and irrigation more effectively.
  • How drones can improve decision-making on the farm.

The data entered into the calculator is only used to display personal results, and is not collected or stored by Measure.

According to Measure, growers have reported that drones have reduced their management yield gaps by up to 25%—all with images gained from flights that can cost less than a bushel an acre.
