mdAgScanner Package

mdAgScanner is a powerful package to help agronomists more efficiently assess crop health. It pairs your choice of the md4-200 or md4-1000 drone platforms with a Micasense RedEdge sensor, which analyses plant reflectance and captures five specific bands of light (Red, Green, Blue, Red Edge, and NIR) to assess the health and vigour of your crops.

The valuable insight provided by mdAgScanner allows potential problems to be identified sooner and treatments to be applied more precisely, resulting in lower labour times and material costs.
