During the first few weeks after sowing seeds, growers typically conduct a manual stand count on a small portion of their field to know how many of the sown seeds roughly emerged into a healthy plant. This is very useful information to decide if they should reseed or get an estimate of the yield (based on the number of plants).
Now, we have partnered with third-party companies such as Agremo Plant Count & Health to bring computer vision based stand count analysis to your DroneDeploy maps.
DroneDeploy App Market
Users can integrate DroneDeploy their everyday farm software programs and customize our platform with over 70 Apps in our App Market.
We found a great video from AgPhD about the importance of Stand Counts.

What Agremo reports are included in the Precision Ag Package?
The Stand Count or Plant Population Report are included in the Precision Ag Package. However, Agremo offers many other analyses that you can generate by paying the additional report fee.
What are the Stand Count and Plant Population reports?
- Stand Count: Count individual, seasonal crops and vegetables to determine accurate stand establishment. Use this information to evaluate sowing quality and potential yield loss
