The Parrot Bluegrass Fields Quadcopter for Agriculture is a crop mapping and analysis tool that can quickly provide actionable data to farmers, retailers, insurers, and anyone else who works directly within the agriculture industry. It is a comprehensive, ready-to-fly drone solution that spans the entire crop analysis workflow. The seamlessness of this end-to-end solution also showcases the unique strength of Parrot Business Solutions, as it builds directly on Parrot Group’s drone, sensor and software expertise in the agricultural sector.
Parrot Bluegrass can automatically cover up to 30 hectares at 70 m / 230 ft. flight altitude per battery. It can also fly at low altitudes, optimizing it to scout fruit crops that require accurate mapping precision.
Parrot Bluegrass is a user friendly integrated solution for farmers: it is easy to set up, easy to fly with its autonomous flight capability, easy to process and easy to repair.
Parrot Bluegrass Fields is a rugged and easy-to-fly quadcopter drone designed for both crop mapping and aerial scouting.
Parrot Bluegrass is equipped with the multispectral sensor, Parrot Sequoia. This small, light, multispectral camera captures 4 spectral bands in visible light and non-visible infrared light to analyze the health status of the crop. It additionally has a 16 MP RGB camera and an internal memory capacity of 64GB.
Parrot Sequoia also comes with a sunshine sensor that not only records the current lighting conditions, but also the GPS location and inertial data. Parrot Sequoia's data can be used with processing software, such as Pix4Dag or AIRINOV FIRST+ cloud platform, to generate an index map of the field to monitor crop that needs scouting and optimized treatment.
Versatile Visual Scouting & Crop Mapping
Equipped with two integrated multipurpose sensors, Parrot Bluegrass Fields is the perfect professional drone solution for visual scouting and crop mapping.

PARROT BLUEGRASS FIELDS: THE BETTER WAY TO WORK IN-FIELD
Parrot Bluegrass Fields provides agriculture professionals with a better way to work, thanks to its unique combination of rugged drone, accurate sensors, easy-to-use mapping and scouting ParrotFields app and robust post-processing software for agriculture. Parrot Bluegrass Fields is the only complete end-to-end drone solution designed from the ground up to make data collection and analysis quick, easy and efficient.
STEP 1. IN-FIELD SET-UP
Parrot Bluegrass Fields is easy to transport and set-up. Carry your Parrot Bluegrass Fields drone in its tailor-made backpack, which conveniently houses three batteries that provide 25 minutes of flight time each, to your desired location. From there, simply connect your smart device to the included Parrot Skycontroller 2, prepare your first automatic flight via the ParrotFields mobile app and you're ready to start mapping.
STEP 2. FIRST FLIGHT FOR CROP MAPPING
Parrot Bluegrass Fields makes it easy to map multiple fields and generate NDVI crop maps. Just plan your flight using the ParrotFields mobile app and the drone will fly above your field, automatically map the area and create an NDVI map in real-time.
With Parrot Bluegrass Fields, you can fly high to cover larger areas or fly low for better resolution, depending on your project's requirements.
STEP 3. IN-FIELD ANALYSIS
Using the NDVI map processed in real-time, it's easy to instantly analyze and compare crop data, including any potential problem areas. You can even compare current NDVI maps with past versions to track the evolution of your crops or add value to your map by adding text annotations.
STEP 4. FOLLOW-UP FLIGHT FOR AERIAL VISUAL SCOUTING
After identifying problem areas, you can perform a semi-automated follow-up flight using ParrotFields on any areas that require further analysis. Simply program a second flight based on the NDVI map result and the drone will automatically fly from one identified problem area to another. You can then take manual control of the drone, inspect each area with the front RGB camera (14 MP), take pictures of the video feed with the single push of a button on your Parrot Skycontroller 2 and get a better understanding of any potential problems affecting your crops.
STEP 5. GROUND SCOUTING
ParrotFields also allows you to complete aerial data with ground data. After flying over potential problem areas, operators can walk their fields and take pictures directly using the ParrotFields app. These images are GPS-tagged and can receive additional text annotations for easy reference.
STEP 6. IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS
Whether through the cloud or their desktop computer, Parrot Bluegrass Fields solution lets operators further analyze the data collected through the included Pix4Dfields software.
With Pix4Dfields, you can identify in-field variability, generate index maps, create prescription maps and much more.
STEP 7. SEAMLESS WORKFLOW INTEGRATION
Parrot Bluegrass Fields solution seamlessly integrates into existing workflows. Pix4Dfields outputs can be integrated into almost any FMIS, and directly into tractors, which can then be utilized efficiently in the field and help farmers to know exactly where and how much to fertilize their crops.
What's in the box:
I looked around other online stores, but chose UAVPrime. Glad I did. They had me flying by the end of the week!
I called in over the phone and was amazed at the service. They took real good care of me.
After being let down by another store, I found UAVPrime. Andrew was helpful and got me on the right track!
