Increase your profit by selling more high-margin inputs
High-resolution aerial imagery can help you sell more high-margin mid-season inputs.
Margins on many chemicals and fertilizers have been under pressure as more retailers have been cutting prices. And the big chemical mergers in the agricultural industry, unfortunately, have not led to lower wholesale prices on chemicals and fertilizers either.

The value of mid-season Inputs
Unfortunately, many growers do not see the end-value of mid-season treatments and are not always using all the products that would benefit their crop. Mid-season inputs, such as fungicides, have higher margins for sellers, so wouldn't it be great if it was possible to show growers that putting those mid-season inputs on their fields have an actual effect on their yield during the growing season? With a TerrAvion high-resolution aerial imagery subscription, it is easy to do.

Prove the value of mid-season inputs
Before the application of the fungicide, the vigor of the field is easily shown in the high-resolution imagery. After applying the chemical, the effect of it can be visually seen in the image from week to week. And at the end of the growing season, the yield data will show you the end results, but the regular imagery has told you the story of all factors influencing it during the season: how it performed during a dry or wet month, or how it rebounded after a bad storm. The results will show in both the imagery and the physical measurements of the crop.
The image on the right shows a cornfield in TerrAvion NDVI map layer with a fungicide test strip on it. The darker the green color is the higher the vigor of the corn plants, The red and yellow shows plants with low vigor. It is self-evident on this field that the plants grow much better with the fungicide application.
TerrAvion customers have found that the corn ears in the treated areas are bigger, on average more than 16% heavier compared to the corn ears in the not treated areas. Which grower would not like to increase their yield by 16%? And it also has shown that the fungicide helps the corn grow better root, making them more resistant to weather events and easier to harvest.
TerrAvion's customers often bundle our imagery subscription with scouting and a mid-season chemical application. Aerial imagery shows the effects of mid-season applications in the field during the season, without having to wait for a yield map at the end of the season. And for those growers who have to see the results of an input on their own field, and are not easily convinced about the value of the input, it is possible to start them with a test application strip.
Why use TerrAvion aerial imagery?
TerrAvion offers a high-resolution aerial imagery subscription package provided by a crewed airplane. Our subscriptions are high-frequency and low price, with a less than a day turnaround that works for any precision ag program. And no suboptimal imagery due to factors such as cloud coverage as we plan our flights around weather events to make sure that our images are useful and clear.
The high resolution of our data, and the various layers make it possible to clearly see differences in the field.
TerrAvion aerial imagery subscription is designed so both retailers and growers get the most out of it. The subscription has enough flight cycles to meet every key agronomic event in a growing season so that data is available when needed.
