FAQ

How does Agremo work and how can I request an analysis?

Requesting an analysis using the Agremo app is actually quite simple. Read more about the process and the requirements in our short step-by-step guide

 

How does the recommended set factor work?

Recommended sets refer to the number of plants planted per acre, hectare or square meter. They need to be provided for plants and crops such as corn, wheat, lettuce and other crops with little or no space between the individual plants. By knowing the recommended set, the system is able to verify case-specific metrics and assure maximum accuracy. Check out our guide to find out how to determine the recommended set.

 

Is it possible to use Agremo via the Agremo platform, or do I have to do it via DroneDeploy?

Yes, you can use benefit from Agremo services directly on our platform.

 

When will my analysis report be ready?

The processing time for all types of reports is up to 2 business days

 

What kind of crop can I analyze via the Agremo app on DroneDeploy?

So far, we’ve successfully analyzed over 70 types of plant species. The best would be to provide us with the maps on DroneDeploy, by launching the app, and providing the necessary inputs: Crop type, Growing stage, Recommended seeding density (plants per hectare).

 

The planting density is entered by the user, right?

Yes, exactly. Planting density refers to the distance between the individual plants, i.e. how close you plant them in relation to one another.

 

What is the difference between the stand count report and the plant population report?

Plant population reports provide information about the number of plants on your field. This report is ideal for counting perennial plantations, orchards and many other field types. It can be used for fields of all sizes and for virtually any plant type, as long as the plants are at least 10 cm above ground. An example would be:

The number that our algorithms have counted is 123,811.

Stand count reports show the number of plants in this area and compare it to the expected result. The expected result refers to the recommended set/number which you provide when submitting your request. This number can be the number of plants you are expecting (per acre or hectare), the plant number the seed producer recommended or any other value you’d like to compare the number of plants to. The difference between the number of plants and your expected results is shown in percent and contains the exact number of missing plants. For example:

The difference between the counted number of plants and the planned number of plants is 32% under norm, which is close to 58,264 plants.

 

Why are Agremo analysis reports accurate and reliable?

Our software is the result of a fruitful cooperation between advanced software engineers and agricultural experts, and was developed in close cooperation with scientific and academic institutions which are leading experts in the field of data analysis and agriculture.

Agremo’s algorithms were verified and improved by several different institutions: ATOS, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Wageningen University and Research Centre, BioSense Center, the Association of Information Technology Companies of Greece, as well as the Bulgarian Association of Software Companies. Our algorithms were then tested on more than 40’000 acres and more than 50 crop types.

The accuracy of the Agremo reports highly depends on the quality and the resolution of the maps that are uploaded. This is why it’s important to us to closely cooperate with drone service providers and make sure the image quality doesn’t stand in the way of an accurate analysis. In any case, Agremo analyses are released only if the results meet our strict quality requirements.

Requests of users with an Agremo subscription are double-checked by our support and quality assurance team, as well as by our agricultural experts. Together, they go through the results and make sure they’re in line with all quality requirements.

How can I verify the results?

With every paid analysis comes a shapefile (SHP) which can be used to verify the Agremo report results. Shapefiles are, in fact, layers where the results of this particular analysis are located. By adding the shapefile layer to the initial map, you’ll be able to see the analyzed factors in detail and have solid proof on which you can base your crop management decisions on.

To do this, simply upload the shapefile to a GIS software and perform a visual check.

 

What elevation & overlap settings do you recommend?

We recommend:

  • 75 m or 246 ft elevation
  • 80% side overlap
  • 80% front overlap
