Taking Agriculture to the Next Level: The DJI Mavic 3

The world’s leading commercial drone manufacturer, DJI, has released the Mavic 3 Multispectral, its latest and most advanced agricultural drone. This agricultural drone, which will be available soon at our distributors, combines multispectral imaging with DJI’s cutting-edge technologies, is a powerful tool for forward-thinking farmers and agricultural professionals. It is also incredibly portable and simple to use. Amazingly, the manufacturer claims that the new drone can survey up to 200 hectares[1] in a single flight under ideal weather conditions and at the proper altitude.

Multispectral imaging for accurate crop monitoring

One of the key features of the DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral is its ability to capture high-resolution images at multiple wavelengths of light. The drone captures green, red, bright red and near infrared – all at 5MP resolution each. In addition, an integrated spectral sunlight sensor on top of the drone detects the amount of solar irradiance, maximizing the accuracy and consistency of data collection at different times of day. Data accuracy is also enhanced by the built-in RTK module, which is responsible for positioning the drone at the centimeter level.

The multispectral camera is mounted on a gimbal, allowing you to capture images from different angles and heights. This gives farmers the flexibility to customize the drone’s flight path and take images at the optimum height for the crop.

All this allows farmers to detect even the smallest differences in crop health, identify pests, diseases and other problems that may be invisible to the naked eye.

Advanced mapping and analysis software

The DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral comes with advanced mapping and analysis software that allows users to process and analyses the data collected by the drone in real time. This includes features such as real-time mapping of the NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), a widely used index for assessing plant health.

Farmers can easily create detailed maps of their fields and track crop progress over time. This information can be used to optimize irrigation, fertilization and other management practices to improve yields and efficiency.

The drone is also compatible with DJI SmartFarm, a web-based, cloud-based drone platform for farmers and operators. It allows them to monitor everything from uploading and processing image data to performing spraying operations in one place, in real time – anytime, anywhere. The tap-based app makes planning and managing modern field management easier, monitoring field conditions and making work documentation a breeze.

Rich visualization of details

In addition to its multispectral imaging capabilities, the DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral also features a high-resolution camera for capturing traditional still photos and video. The wide-angle, 4/3 CMOS, 20-megapixel sensor of the camera features a mechanical shutter to prevent motion blur and supports fast interval shooting at 0.7 seconds. The sensor features large 3.3μm pixels, which, combined with the intelligent low-light shooting mode, provide significantly better performance in dim conditions.

This can be useful for a wide range of applications, including aerial mapping, 3D modelling and land cover classification, automatic identification and enumeration of crops, or even documenting damage to crops and livestock for smooth insurance processes. The drone can also be useful for farmers who want to check that there is no tilling on the borders of their property or even helps to catch thieves.

Portability and ease of use

One of the main advantages of the DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral is its portability. The drone weights less than one kilogram and, because it folds down to a compact size, it can be easily carried in a backpack or hand luggage. Farmers can take it with them wherever they go, making it an ideal tool for field work and regular monitoring of crops.

Remote control and advanced safety features

One of the most exciting new features of the DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral is that it comes with the redesigned DJI RC Pro Enterprise remote control. The controller has a built-in high brightness (1000 nits) display, so it remains effective to use even under glaring sunlight. The drone is flown using the DJI Pilot 2 app, designed to increase pilot efficiency and flight safety. Basic drone and gimbal/camera functions are also easily accessible with a single touch.

Additionally, the DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral is equipped with a number of cutting-edge safety features, such as automatic return to home functionality, obstacle avoidance sensors in all directions, and an army of positioning systems. The drone is also now equipped with the manufacturer’s new DJI O3 Enterprise video and signal transmission system, which integrates two signal transmission channels and four receiving channels and supports a transmission range of up to 15 kilometers (the maximum flight distance of the drone varies by region).

Thanks to these features, the drone can fly safely and precisely, even in environments with dense obstacles.

Wide range of developer tools

DJI has also thought about professional users who are looking for unique solutions. The DJI Mavic 3M can be integrated into a variety of ecosystems, so the tasks the drone can perform are limited only by your imagination. Through the DJI Cloud API, you can connect the Mavic 3M directly to a third-party cloud platform to collect information, live video, photo data and more, all without having to develop a separate application. The Mavic 3M also supports Mobile SDK 5 (MSDK5), making it easy to develop exclusive control applications for situations such as intelligent surveillance.


The DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral is a truly versatile, innovative tool both for farmers and agricultural professionals. Its multispectral imaging capabilities, portability and advanced mapping and analysis software make it an indispensable tool for optimizing crop yields and improving the efficiency of agricultural operations. Whether you’re a smallholder or a large-scale farmer, the DJI Mavic 3 Multispectral will certainly be a valuable addition to your farmer’s toolbox.
