Common uses

  • Assessing replant needs for nursery orders
  • Reducing labor expenses when counting, removing, or replacing trees
  • Investigating underlying causes of tree mortality
  • Analyzing variations in yield

How it works

Traditional orchard inventorying is time-consuming, expensive, and often error-prone. Ceres Imaging provides an alternative.

  1. Skip the clicker count: We capture data from the sky. There’s no setup or equipment for you to manage.
  2. Get your report: Our analysts deliver a detailed inventory of your trees by varietal.
  3. Place your nursery order: Save time by downloading a summary straight from the Ceres Imaging app.
  4. Plant replacement trees: Pinpoint the exact location of replacement needs for your team—no tree tape or wasted time.

From imagery to action

Ceres Imaging pinpoints missing trees by varietal, streamlining the tree replacement process. It’s faster, cheaper, and more accurate than manual counting.


An aerial view with ground-level detail

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.

Ensuring accuracy

Ceres Imaging’s emphasis on quality begins even before we fly your fields.

Image capture

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.

Processing and analysis

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.

Quality control

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.

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.
