1. Who and When
Who and when?

Farmers, farm service providers, construction sites and land owners.

When should you start to use drone technology in your farming operations?

2. Scouting


We can start to collect data at any time of the year or crop cycle. The data collected is imported into the software we use and is rapidly processed and shared to your client portal.

3 .Interpret findings

Interpret findings

Once the data has been processed and shared, farmers and service providers can then analyse the data. This can be easily viewed by everyone who needs too through our customer portal where you will also have a number of useful tools to use with your maps. These include things like distance and area/volume measurements and image comparison tools. 


4.Make decisions

Make a decision

Farmers  and site operators can now decide on how best to use the information they have. They can plan for localized fertilizer and pesticide applications on their crops or trial plots. New irrigation techniques, site monitoring and  documentation. Store their data as a visible record that is accessible anywhere (office or field)

5. Implement plan

Implement plan

After a decision has been made, all that is left is to take action.

A grower/farmer can upload a prescription map to precision agriculture compatible machinery,  or to John Deere Operations Centre direct for site-specific applications using GPS positioning or more accurate alternatives such as RTK* to enact treatment plans or new spot spraying application techniques.

*RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) is a technique used to ensure higher positional accuracies.

6. Repeat

Repeat Surveying and scouting

Our drones can collect data about the site using previous flight plans when specified by the client. This builds up highly accurate data about crops and land over time.

This process can be repeated through out the year when you require.


Some of the current challenges in UK farming


Sustainable agriculture

The principles of sustainable agriculture is to promote farming practices that prioritize the conservation of natural resources, such as water and soil, to ensure that the land remains productive for future generations.


Straight Up Drones offer valuable tools to help with sustainable agriculture by providing real-time data, improving decision-making, and optimizing resource use in crop and livestock production systems.


As technology continues to advance, drones are expected to play an increasingly important role in promoting environmental stewardship, economic viability, and social responsibility in agriculture.

Climate change

In the context of the UK, climate change poses significant challenges for farming due to its impact on various aspects of agricultural production.

Changing Temperatures: Climate change is leading to an increase in average temperatures globally, including in the UK. This can affect crop growth patterns, as some crops may require specific temperature ranges for optimal growth. 

Changing Rainfall Patterns: Climate change is altering rainfall patterns, leading to increased variability and more extreme weather events such as droughts and floods. These events can damage crops, soil structure, and infrastructure, leading to reduced yields and increased costs for farmers.

Pest and Disease Spread: Changes in temperature and weather patterns can affect the distribution and behavior of pests and diseases. Warmer temperatures may allow pests to thrive in regions where they were previously unable to survive. 



Britain’s food security

Like many other business sectors, volatility, uncertainty and instability are the greatest risks to farm businesses, and Britain’s food security.


Agricultural business sectors encompass a wide range of activities involved in the production, processing, distribution, and marketing of agricultural products.

Each sector faces its own set of challenges and risks, but volatility, uncertainty, and instability are common concerns across all sectors.


Straight Up Drones offer valuable capabilities for enhancing the resilience, sustainability, and productivity of agricultural businesses.  This then helps towards reducing the risks associated with volatility, uncertainty, and instability in the agricultural sector and help you contribute more to Britain’s food security goals.
