Skippy Scout has been awarded gold in the LAMMA Innovation Awards.
The mobile phone app uses images taken by drones to help farmers walk crops faster.
It uses drone photography and artificial intelligence software to analyse crops at leaf level and offer vital broad acre crop insight.
Jack Wrangham, founder of Drone Ag, will be speaking at LAMMA to explain how drones are already an essential tool for many farmers and how over the next five years drones will help provide the information to aid precision farming.
He says: “We are humbled and excited to win a gold award in the ‘Future Innovation’ category of the LAMMA awards. We believe Skippy Scout can benefit farmers all over the world and we are excited to be launching it at LAMMA.”
Adding: “As farm sizes increase and labour units per hectare decline, the risk of losing crops because a problem has not been identified quickly enough will increase. Skippy Scout offers every farmer the chance to see and evaluate crops easily and efficiently using just a phone and a drone.”
The LAMMA Innovation Awards recognise and give exposure to some of the best advances in agricultural manufacturing.
In 2019, Drone Ag exceeded its crowdfunding target by more than £50,000.
