AgVue Technologies was the first company in Pennsylvania to receive FAA licensing for commercial drone operations.

Combining drone technology with precision agriculture techniques and advanced software, AgVue is helping farm professionals worldwide evaluate the current state of their crops for proactive decision making.  

Unlike other vendors, AgVue eliminates the burden of obtaining FAA licensing, cost to buy and insure drones, time required to learn to fly and maintain aircraft (repair after crash), learn complex software and pay a monthly fee to try and image their own fields using hobby drones.

AgVue lets farmers concentrate on their area of expertise – farming.

AgVue’s fully insured FAA licensed pilots use custom commercial drones carrying laboratory-grade sensors to measure plant reflectance at many different wavelengths. Plant spectral reflectance changes dramatically with health, especially in the non-visible regions.

This real-time data is used to identify areas of stress that might occur any time throughout the growing season. Stress may be caused by a number of factors such as inadequate fertilization, insect infestation and moisture levels.  Early identification of these issues allow farmers to employ precision agriculture techniques to spot-treat just the area of concern. Precision agriculture is vital to improving crop health and yield, while minimizing the negative impact on the environment by over treating.

AgVue’s proprietary software algorithms provide the farm professional with a wide variety of crop data to thoroughly analyze their current crops. Data analytics supplied by AgVue include dozens of vegetative indices,(NDVI, GNDVI, ENDVI, SAVI, OSAVI,etc.) along with other tools to measure plant height, canopy cover, biomass and number of plants. AgVue’s surface contour maps also help to evaluate and mitigate runoff and water pooling issues.

  • AgVue’s proprietary CropVueTM app uses a smartphone to deliver information on specific areas of concern. This critical and actionable data is delivered to the grower in an expedient, streamlined and user friendly fashion, making the entire assessment process faster, more accurate and less expensive.  The web-based app provides an easy portal for AgVue's customers to upload, store and view their images.
