COMMERCIAL DRONES IN THE WINE INDUSTRY
Winery Drones Address New Challenges For Wine Makers
Wine making is a nuanced business, and today things are changing for grape growers all over the world. In addition to an economic landscape that isn’t as favorable as could be hoped for, the climate has begun to present challenges that were unheard of even a few years ago in many areas. At the same time, technology has advanced rapidly, and today drones (UAVs) offer wineries new ways of creating operational efficiencies. In addition to the incredible imaging capabilities that drones offer grape farmers, they can be integrated into advanced measurement systems that help vineyards operate at optimum levels. Here at MetroUAV, we know how to make UAVs work for just about any kind of farm out there. UAVs in agriculture and not any different than drones used in the wine industry. We can offer your winery best in class service and an innovative attitude. If you have been thinking about how to use drones in your operation, here are some reasons why other professional wine growers have chosen to use drones. Let’s take a look at UAVs used in vineyards.
A New Environment
A Lot On The Line
Verizon has been a leader in cellular communications, but in California, they are working with wine growers to create advanced atmospheric metering equipment for the challenging conditions that are emerging in the region. While the ground based sensors that Verizon integrated into their system are invaluable for measuring humidity, drones provide a view of the foliage that will determine how much light is penetrating the canopy.
Also, the being able to use visible light photography to analyze the vines, uavs can easily be fitted with hyperspectral cameras that reveal many useful things. When combined with the data from the ground based sensing equipment, a new level of information is made available to wine growers. This picture will help them to optimize their use of the land, and give their vines the care they need.
Labor is also creating challenges for commercial farmers, and winery drones can do tasks that would have been expensive to accomplish with a field worker. There are no two ways about it, many of the jobs that make great wine happen are hard to do. Great vineyards are looking for the means to get more from their employees so that they can adapt to challenges that they didn’t face a decade ago.
Winery Drones can make inspections easy, and expensive labor can be used for more important things. Because UAVs can easily navigate steep terrain, or move rapidly over large areas, making visual inspections has never been easier. With UAVs in your vineyard, large cost savings can be realized.
