Nutrient mapping for precision fertiliser application
The Pioneering to Precision programme, led by Ravensdown is changing the way we apply fertiliser.
Blanket application of fertiliser results in over-fertilisation of some areas (wastage) and under-fertilisation of others.
Using aerial hyperspectral imaging, we produce accurate nutrient maps of the farmland below. This data is fed into a topdresser aircraft that uses automated GPS systems and variable rate application to deliver targeted fertiliser application and better returns for farmers.
Crop health monitoring, disease detection, and nutrient management.
Monitor your crop health and detect disease in your orchards using aerial hyperspectral imaging.
Monitoring the health and disease status of your orchards is vital for ensuring ongoing productivity.
Our technology can improve the productivity of horticultural businesses by providing key insights to inform orchard management. Using aerial hyperspectral imaging, we can provide information on plant vigor or stress, plant nutrients, disease detection, fruit quality, and crop maturity. This can aid horticulturalists in making decisions regarding precise fertiliser application and disease/pest prevention.
Mānuka identification for monitoring crop size, health, and hive location.
Monitor your mānuka crop and gather insights into crop health, productivity and where to locate beehives.
Monitoring your mānuka crop can provide insights to improve honey production and productivity.
Hyperspectral imaging can provide insights into the size of your mānuka crop, productivity of the plants, encroachment of invasive species, and where to locate beehives to maximise productivity.
Species identification and disease detection for the forestry industry.
Our aerial hyperspectral imaging technology can help you track the health of your forestry assets.
Tracking the growth and health of forestry is vital for maintaining and monitoring your assets.
Our technology enables large-scale monitoring of forestry blocks. Using aerial hyperspectral imaging, we can provide information on pest plants, early disease detection, foliar nutrients (e.g., boron), and tree health.
Classifying native bush and identifying pest species like wilding pines.
Monitor biodiversity, native bush regeneration, weed control, and invasive species.
Monitoring biodiversity and detecting invasive plant species is critical to conservation efforts.
Our technology enables large-scale monitoring of native bush and provides key insights to enhance conservation efforts. Using aerial hyperspectral imaging, we can provide information on species identification, size of native areas, and detection of invasive plant species (e.g. wilding pines) to aid conservation decision making.

Contaminant and source identification. Suspended sediment.
Monitor the health of waterways and waterbodies to respond to water quality threats.
Waterways are critical parts of New Zealand's ecosystem.
Hyperspectral imaging can enable large-scale scanning of waterways or water bodies. Hyperspectral imaging can identify water contaminants or suspended solids to help identify the source of the contamination or monitor remediation efforts.
Green vs. built space analysis. Vegetation and material identification.
Hyperspectral imaging can assist with urban planning and monitoring.
There is a growing demand for councils to accurately map their urban areas for resource and environmental planning.
Hyperspectral imaging can enables cost-effective scanning of urban areas to map urban and green areas, identify vegetation or other materials, and vegetation maintenance. We can also produce a carbon map showing sources of emissions and sinks and measure carbon movements over time.
Our aerial surveys also have advantages over drone-based surveys that require permissions to fly over private properties.
Measuring land-based carbon sequestration.
Understanding carbon sinks and sequestration at a large scale is easier than ever.
Hyperspectral imaging can estimate and monitor carbon sequestration across farms. This data is critical for farmers facing increased scrutiny on their agricultural emissions and activities that offset and sequester carbon on farm.
