We pinpoint irrigation issues that affect uniformity—such as clogs, leaks and pressure failures—before they impact crop health and your bottom line.

  • Discover new issues 2-3 weeks before they are visually apparent in your crop
  • Save time and reduce costs with more efficient sampling, labor routing, and issue scouting
  • Get automatic notifications of likely irrigation problems in the field
aerial plots 1000x563


Our high-resolution aerial data is the first of its kind to assess crop health at the individual plant level, so you can quantify the impact of your decisions in the field.

  • Measure changes in crop health and uniformity over time
  • Easily compare performance between fields or varietals and against baselines
  • Prioritize projects and investments in your farm by evaluating their potential ROI


We provide full visibility into crop health so you can identify the changes that will most benefit your bottom line.
  • See the full picture by integrating aerial data with your in-field sensors
  • Visualize water demand and irrigation performance to improve uniformity and meet the needs of each individual plant
  • Ensure your sampling strategy reflects the true variability in your fields

Precision agriculture analytics

An effective precision agriculture strategy relies on data that’s accurate, relevant, and easy to use. Ceres Imaging provides actionable insights to streamline daily tasks and guide your long-term strategy.


Cumulative Stress Index

The Cumulative Stress Index is a scorecard of total orchard health, revealing where yield may be most impacted by stress. Use the index to identify the most vulnerable areas of your operation, evaluate the ROI on addressing issues, and protect the long-term health of your business.

Custom zones

Custom zones take our powerful analytics tools a step further, aggregating crop health data into meaningful units for key farm management decisions. Custom zones are tailored to your business needs and instantly responsive: start with a view by irrigation zone to guide scheduling adjustments, then drill down to individual blocks to set scouting priorities.

Chlorophyll Index

By measuring reflectances in multiple visible and near infrared bands, our Chlorophyll Index provides insights into plant nitrogen content in-season. More sensitive to nutrient differences than NDVI imagery, the Chlorophyll Index informs targeted tissue sampling, early yield predictions in row crops, and fertility management.

Imagery - Chlor - Streaking - 20180824 - Sea View LV 27SW - tight.1Color infrared

Color infrared (CIR) imagery incorporates near infrared (NIR), green, and red reflectances, resulting in a clearer display of vegetation and soil than RGB color imagery. Growers use CIR imagery for early-season monitoring of emergence, canopy density, and soil composition or water content.

Imagery - Chlor - Streaking - 20180824 - Sea View LV 27SW - tight.1.1.1Thermal

Unlike similar products derived from satellite data, scientific-grade imagery from our plane-mounted thermal cameras reveals minute differences in temperature at a plant level. Ceres Imaging can accurately detect temperature differences of 0.1 degree Celsius between plants, with an absolute accuracy within 1 degree Celsius—the most accurate thermal imagery available for agriculture.
