Crop Scouting and Monitoring Division
GIVING YOU AN EARLY HEADS-UP
We use unmanned aerial vehicles, referred to as UAVs or drones, to optimize crop scouting of your fields, in combination with our proprietary Al-driven database of satellite imagery, to help you proactively detect issues such as early crop stress or pest or disease infestations. Crop health is monitored every two or three days, detecting potential issues before they are visible to the naked eye, directing you or your agronomist to any trouble spots and enabling you to make decisions on what actions to take.
We provide detailed meteorological data with suggestions for favourable seeding days or spraying days. Our environmental analysis during the growing season can identify potential diseases, offer information for decisions regarding additional crop nutrients and provide estimates of crop yields.
Hailstorms can be devastating setbacks. Our drone and satellite imagery services help growers understand the true extent of their losses and determine their next steps. This information can also assist hail insurance adjusters in their work.

Advantages of GTA Crop Monitoring
Put GTA Crop Monitoring to Work in Your Fields
GTA’s crop monitoring provides detailed information on crop health at different stages of the growing cycle, identifying potential issues early, from crop stress to soil borne disease detection.
But our mission isn’t just to create data — it is to translate data into actionable data you can use to make decisions about your crops based on conditions in your fields and provide nature based remedial solutions.
Early Detection of Crop Stress
Using our proprietary Al-driven satellite imagery database, we provide proactive data to help you mitigate against potential biotic and abiotic stresses. Our goal is to catch potential issues before they become visible to the naked eye.
In Case of Hail
In the event of a hailstorm, our crop monitoring system looks at the difference in vegetative index biomass using a time series analyses. This helps you understand what potential losses might have occurred while providing a valuable tool for growers and hail insurance adjusters.
GTA provides soil zoning based on three layers, with a soil test of each zone and ground truthed soil test of each zone. Zoning helps you assess field homogeneity, allowing you to divide fields into soil sampling zones based on productivity areas. Zoning also provides data for soil clay, silt and sand content, soil salinity and soil organic matter.
Innovative Crop Monitoring Tools
Interactive Team Management
The GTA’s team management function puts you in control of what’s happening across your operation. Use it to manage assigned roles among employees and contractors, monitor activities, mark out the GPS coordinates of fields and add descriptions to assigned tasks through our HiredMan app.
Cloud cover is the bane of satellite imaging. GTA’s innovative technology uses an in-house GIS Library to screen out clouds from every satellite image acquired. We also provide growers with synthetic aperture radar satellite images that can penetrate through cloud cover during acquisition of satellite imagery, offering quality analysis of growers’ fields based on high resolution images at 2-5 days interval.
Harnessing the power of drones
At GTA, we use hi-tech, AI-driven drones equipped with high-resolution cameras to validate data from our crop monitoring system and to carry out field analysis
