Crop Yield Forecasting Powered by Advanced Drone Analytics

The Problem with Traditional Crop Yield Forecasting

Insurance companies face a significant challenge in accurate crop yield forecasting, a critical factor in assessing risk and determining premiums for crop insurance policies. Traditional methods, such as relying on historical data and weather patterns, often fall short in providing real-time, field-level insights. This can lead to inaccurate risk assessments, resulting in either underpricing or overpricing insurance policies, ultimately affecting both insurers’ profitability and farmers’ coverage adequacy.
