Compared to RGB imagery—which is similar to a digital photograph—color infrared imagery (CIR) provides a more detailed view by incorporating reflectance invisible to the human eye. CIR is especially useful for evaluating field conditions when crop canopy is minimal, allowing growers to address early-season issues before they impact yield.
High-resolution multispectral imagery is only the beginning. Our analytics tools help you interpret your data—translating what you can see in your imagery into what you can do about it.
Color infrared imagery can be used to evaluate irrigation systems prior to planting.
Soil zones built from color infrared imagery are a cost-effective alternative to grid mapping and EC/EM mapping.
Linear patterns in this color infrared image correspond to damaged drip line in the field.
Color infrared imagery is especially useful for evaluating conditions in the field when crop canopy is minimal.
We capture imagery during peak daylight hours and under weather conditions that minimize distortion from shadows and cloud cover. Our highly sensitive, custom-built cameras detect minute changes in the multispectral range—allowing us to detect crop stress earlier than our competitors.
Imagery is geo-referenced and meticulously “masked” to ensure that only relevant information is evaluated. By making use of crop-specific data models and isolating the canopy from ground cover and other background noise, we prevent skewing of the data and enable a more accurate assessment of plant health.
Imagery is assessed in-house by Ceres Imaging’s remote sensing experts, passing through multiple checkpoints before delivery in the Ceres Imaging app within 48 hours of the flight. Growers can access their data on a mobile device, tablet, or desktop computer.

The difference between Ceres Imaging and other technologies I've used is the help I get from their expert team.
With Ceres Imaging we can take a more targeted approach to applying fertilizer and nutrients.
These flights can cover way more ground and provide more insight than a dozen soil moisture probes — and it's cheaper to implement.
The average Ceres Imaging conductance measurement from its imagery over the season has provided the best correlation with applied water.
