 mastery is easy with the right tools, examples, datasets and best practices at your fingers.
Our Masterclass Contains
Over 100 Video Lessons
Comprehensive lessons on every category, so you can dive in from scratch, or pick and choose categories you need to learn.

Choose your approach
- Mix and match as needed and approach over time
- Binge and get a crash course 
- Approach as you would a college class
10+ Case Studies
We know that the best way to learn is from exploring real world use cases. 

We include case studies in specialty crops, turf grass, clear cuts and forestry, landscape architecture, grazing, ecological, citrus research, nutrient deficiencies, plant disease detection, weed estimation and more!

With Dr. Gregory Crutsinger 
While conducting research in the field as a PhD in ecology, Dr. Gregory Crutsinger caught the drone bug, and began testing the use of UAVs in his plant experiments. He became especially interested in how autonomous drone technology could enable collecting data that could impact agriculture, and how drones would allow sensors to be deployed in new and exciting ways to impact research and assessment in the field.

“This course provided San Francisco Bay Gourmet Coffee with the thread we needed to stitch our precision agriculture solution together. Using the Phytomappers Pro Masterclass by Scholar Farms, we had the necessary tools to procure equipment, fly missions, take photos, process data and finally analyze actionable results for our farmers. Armed with information gained from this course and thanks to the knowledge and expertise thoughtfully presented by Gregory Crutsinger, we can keep up to speed with the organic changes of our coffee farms as well as the exponential innovation of the drone industry.”

"I've known and worked alongside Greg over the past few years in the drone industry. He has extensive knowledge of the commercial market and a passion for data analytics and plants. I'm really excited about the results of his efforts to build this masterclass. It's a great resource!"
Paul Spaur
Drone Technical Manager
"Greg has an extremely deep understanding of not just the technology that enables aerial data, but the practical workflows you need to get real world applicable results. He's a true master of drone mapping." 
Colin Guinn
Founder and CEO of Guinn Partners
I continue to be impressed by the professional quality of the Scholar Farms master courses. Dr. Crutsinger  is a leading expert in the UAS industry and he does a great job explaining complex topics in relatable and engaging ways. It was an obvious choice to include the Phytomappers Class as a resource for students in Sinclair’s data analytics curriculum.
