About Buzzard Cameras

Buzzard Cameras is helping farmers meet the global increasing demand for food by providing them with reliable crop health intelligence.
Our system for integrating satellite and drone imagery allows farmers to easily analyse the health of their crops and make informed management decisions, which boosts yields and profits.

The challenge

Current methods of gathering information on crop health and performance are expensive, inefficient and unreliable.
As the requirements of a crop can vary massively within a single field, decision making without spatially variable information can result in wasted time, money, and effort. This also often results in the crop not reaching its maximum yield potential, and causes unnecessary environmental pollution.
 

The solution

Buzzard Cameras provide a reliable solution to the provision of crop health intelligence by using multispectral imagery captured by both drones and satellites.
This is possible due to our multispectral camera specifically designed to integrate with the European Space Agency’s Sentinel-2 satellites, and our Buzzard Data Hub web application.
The spatially variable crop health intelligence provided by our multispectral cameras and the ESA Sentinel-2 satellites is available in one convenient location within the Buzzard Data Hub. This information will increase yields, reduce costs, and decrease the environmental impact of agriculture.
