Brazil is one of the greatest cotton producers in the world, with over 1.6 million hectares of planted areas in the country. While the cotton feathers are basically destined to the textile industry, the cottonseed is used in the production of edible oil, biofuel, mix for rations and fertilizers, and some other uses. It¬īs a versatile fiber with a high aggregated value.
To fulfill Agriculture¬īs evergrowing demand, XMobots innovates in the drone market offering a complete solution to its clients, making the crops development possible, in a technological cycle that evolves through generations.
This is COTTON SOLUTION, an exclusive XMobots technology that encompasses the different steps of the crops monitoring, from data collection to the results analysis, assuring a safe decision making, focusing in the profitability.
The¬†identification¬†of¬†planting failures¬†allows¬†XFarming¬†Cotton¬†to analyze¬†the¬†uniformity¬†of¬†crops, evaluate¬†the¬†germ¬†rate¬†of¬†the¬†seeds, and¬†measure¬†the¬†loss¬†estimate through¬†classification.
All¬†crops¬†are¬†bound¬†to¬†be¬†infested¬†by¬†pests and¬†diaseases. In¬†order¬†to¬†make¬†an¬†assertive¬†decision,¬†it‚Äôs necessary¬†to¬†monitor¬†the¬†crop¬†and¬†be fast to¬†act!¬†Therefore,¬†we¬†count¬†on¬†high-quality¬†multispectral¬†images¬†generated by¬†XMA¬†camera!¬†
The balance between the vegetative and reproductive growth is¬†one of the¬†best strategies to maximize¬†the production by¬†each¬†plant. Growth¬†regulator¬†spraying application at variable rate¬†allows better¬†uniformity¬†of¬†the¬†crop,¬†lower competition¬†for¬†sun¬†rays¬†and a cleaner¬†harvest.
The¬†defoliant¬†spraying¬†application¬†at variable¬†rate¬†reduces¬†the¬†expenses with¬†pesticides. It¬†not¬†only¬†increases¬†the¬†profitability of¬†the¬†crop¬†and¬†the¬†quality¬†of¬†the cotton¬†fiber,¬†but¬†it¬†also¬†does¬†not interfere in the organic opening of the¬†bolls.¬†
A¬†cleaner¬†harvest¬†results in a better¬†processing¬†of¬†the¬†cotton¬†fiber!
To detect planting failures, to generate growth regulators and defoliant spraying maps, and others are actions that require a precise and accurate vision of the planted area. To get such results, the first step is to get crop¬īs images. Although it¬īs very common to use satellite imaging ‚Äď 3 meters GSD ‚Äď to cotton crops, the aerial digital survey using drones allows a significant better detailing (3 to 5 centimeters per pixel).
Much more than a tool that is robust, accurate and guarantees the high productivity in data collection, it¬īs important that the sensor used in the image capturing reveals outstanding information. To get unique results, XMobots specialists team developed XMA camera, the only imaging sensor in the world which development was based in the spectral signature of cotton leaf. The rich amount of details brought by the camera is one of the greatest differentials in COTTON SOLUTION and a fundamental part for the data analysis, the following step in this process.
Thoughout the development of COTTON SOLUTION, XMobots team mapped thousands of hectares, in different phenological phases of cotton crops growth. This database is key part of AI resources of XFarming, XMobots¬ī data analysis software.
XFarming Cotton analyzes the main issues of the crops, generating accurate reports that help in the decision making, in an agile, fast and automated way.
XMobots wants its clients to feel secure about flying their drones and generating great results. Therefore, they can count on XMobots¬ī XConsulting specialists, that offer, after drone operation training, the implementation of the technology to their daily needs in the field.
We fly, process and analyze together. Walking hand in hand, we go farther.
