Field scouts can only cover so much ground—and when they do spot an issue, it’s often after the damage is done. We pinpoint clogs, leaks and pressure failures before the issue impacts your bottom line.

  • Get automatic notifications of likely irrigation problems in the field
  • 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


It’s hard to improve your irrigation strategy without the right data. Our analytics tools help you quantify and track your progress—so you can validate key decisions and know if you’re making the right investments in your farm.

  • Quantify and prioritize issues based on their potential impact on yield
  • Uncover opportunities for ROI—from addressing leaks and clogs to improving uniformity
  • Use plant-level data to assess and compare performance between varietals


Effective irrigation goes beyond consistent monitoring and prompt repairs. We’ll help you develop and refine your farm-level strategy to meet your management goals and deliver ongoing improvements.
  • Correct overwatering and underwatering to improve uniformity
  • Match irrigation system design and scheduling to terrain and soil conditions
  • Create accurate, precise VRA zones to reduce costs through targeted applications

From imagery to action

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.

Imagery - Chlor - Streaking - 20180824 - Sea View LV 27SW - tight. Pivot Analytics Suite

Specifically designed for farmers and advisors managing more than 1,000 acres, the Center Pivot Analytics Suite automatically detects, prioritizes, and alerts you to irrigation issues in your fields, eliminating the need to sift through hundreds of individual images. Automatically generate VRA zones based on real-time, in-season data—and import directly to your applicator.

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.

acregrid_cumulativestressCumulative 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.

Imagery - Chlor - Streaking - 20180824 - Sea View LV 27SW - tight.1.1NDVI

Not all NDVI imagery is created equal. Our meticulous attention to detail—from sensor calibration to image stitching and correction for atmospheric conditions—makes our delivery of this benchmark imagery best in class.

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.

tree_count_detailTree counting

Tree counts with Ceres Imaging make it possible to avoid the time and expense of traditional clicker-counting—without sacrificing accuracy. In addition to a map of missing and unhealthy trees, growers have the option to view specifics such as rootstock type and planting year at the individual tree level.

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