Increasing Agricultural Efficiency with TrueView LiDAR and LP360 Software

Discover how accurate crop data collected with TrueView LiDAR and processed in LP360 enables farmers to optimize their harvest.

In this video, Felipe Alfaya, a Remote Sensing Specialist from Alvaz, explains how they use TrueView LiDAR technology and LP360 software for measuring and evaluating crops for their customers. The height of corn plants is a crucial characteristic for farmers, as it allows them to adjust their machines accordingly and optimize their harvest. By using LiDAR and LP360, the Alvaz can provide farmers with accurate information to maximize their harvest.

Watch this informative video below, that showcases the power of TrueView LiDAR and LP360 in enhancing agricultural practices.

LiDAR for Agriculture

 TrueView LiDAR technology and LP360 software can be utilized in agricultural applications, particularly in determining the height of corn plants during their development. Accurate plant height information is crucial for farmers to properly set their machines, as incorrect settings can result in yield loss. The use of TrueView LiDAR and LP360 enables more efficient harvesting by providing farmers with precise and detailed information on plant height.

Agricultural research companies also benefit from this technology as they can pass on the plant data to farmers, allowing them to anticipate the development of their new crops. This accurate information can be shared with potential buyers of the crops, providing them with more precise details on crop quality. Alfaya relies on the TrueView Lidar data for providing the best crop analysis. “We can give our clients a whole range of statistics,” he explains. “The tallest plant, the shortest, and the standard deviation of height or whatever else the client may require. The LiDAR provides a much deeper level of detail.”

LiDAR or Photogrammetry

The team at Alvaz has also used photogrammetry in the past for crop management. However, LiDAR stands out as a more precise sensor, offering the ability to differentiate between different crop rows and individual plants. Photogrammetry only provides average height information for the entire crop, making it difficult to differentiate between different plants or crop rows.

Another factor is the speed and efficiency of the LP360 software. As agricultural data is time-sensitive, providing clients with detailed and accurate information quickly enables them to make informed decisions for managing their harvest effectively. LP360 software plays a crucial role in creating deliverables promptly, ensuring that agricultural data is available to clients as fast as possible.

Overall, TrueView LiDAR technology and LP360 software are valuable tools in agricultural applications, allowing for precise measurements of plant height and providing detailed statistics that aid farmers and agricultural research companies in optimizing their crop management and decision-making processes.
