“Without these aerial images I probably would not have done anything to this orchard”

Bill Brush - Crop Consultant; Modesto, CA

“Gain more awareness of how important it is to act based on data and use appropriate force not necessarily over whelming force on whatever your problem is.”

Jose Baer - Oso Ag; Buellton, CA

“These systems really allow us to get to places and do things we could not have otherwise.”

Todd Jacobs - National Ocean Service (NOS) of NOAA

“When its done flying I can take a look at what its done and get some answers right away. Its going to make us more efficient and make better management decisions.”

Nick Gatzman - Travaille & Phippen; Walnut Creek, CA

“The post-flight software allowed our group to quickly process the images and to obtain multispectral orthomosaic to analyze the vegetation indices (as NDVI) without using a powerful computer.”

Angel Maresma - Cornell University Nutrient Management Spear Program

“A drone would not have been in my top 5 things that I would like to update in our corn operation. However, after having flown Quantix, I'm thinking it would make it into the top 3.”

Doug Albin - 4th Generation Farmer; MN

“The image detail is amazing. Quantix analytics package gives the farmer-pilot the ability to zero in on geo-referenced areas of interest.”

The Progressive Farmer - Agriculture Publication

“Quantix mapped the entire 140 acres in only 18 minutes, and after the data was uploaded into AV DSS, I had a complete view of my field in less than 24 hours.”

Ashley Runholt - Agronomist - Cottonwood Co-Op Oil Company; Cottonwood, MN

“What I found to be one of the most useful applications for Quantix & AV DSS was taking early season NDVI imagery of corn fields and creating variable rate maps for additional nitrogen applications.”

Josh Hammond - Certified Crop Advisor, FarmAssist Consulting; Dickinson, ND

“This is by far the most intuitive drone we have ever used and everything is included in an integrated package.”

Song Li, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Crop and Soil Environmental Science, Virginia Tech
