Parrot has announced a new end-to-end agriculture drone solution dubbed Parrot Bluegrass Fields.
Part of the Parrot Business Solutions portfolio, Parrot Bluegrass Fields brings together the Parrot Bluegrass drone with the new ParrotFields mobile mapping app, as well as the Pix4Dfields desktop and cloud-based drone mapping software.
“Parrot Bluegrass Fields makes it easier than ever before for professionals such as agronomists, farmers and researchers to map their fields, to scout crops from the air, and to then act directly on the insights they gain,” explains Jean-Thomas Celette, chief strategy and product officer for Parrot Business Solutions. “The seamlessness of this end-to-end solution also showcases the unique strength of Parrot Business Solutions, as it builds directly on Parrot Group’s drone, sensor and software expertise in the agricultural sector.”
The Parrot Bluegrass drone features a flight time of up to 25 minutes, flight coverage of up to 160 acres per flight at 400 feet and a tailor-made backpack. Further, its vertical take-off and landing ensures efficient operations, even in confined areas, notes Parrot.
With an integrated multispectral Parrot Sequoia sensor and a 14 MP front RGB camera to shoot both pictures and video in full HD (1080p), the solution is designed for both crop mapping and visual scouting. Parrot Bluegrass Fields offers one-year access to the new ParrotFields mapping app, designed to simplify the in-field workflow.
In addition to ParrotFields, Parrot Bluegrass Fields includes one full year of access to the Pix4Dfields desktop and cloud software for further in-depth analysis of the crop data gathered, including the creation of index maps for crop performance analysis and prescription maps.
Priced at $4,490, Parrot Bluegrass Fields is available for pre-sale immediately via official Parrot Business Solutions distribution partners. Shipping will commence at the end of this month.
