Drone use in agriculture

[ Edited ]

Our team recently traveled to Iowa State University and Kansas State University to learn about small unmanned aerial systems for use in agriculture.

 

Kansas State is using the technology to research a variety of uses in agriculture, including its use for evaluating crop conditions and variable rate technology as well as detecting high concentrations of blue green algae in ponds that could harm livestock.

 

Here's a link to a slideshow that will give you an overview of our research: Will drones be part of your precision ag plan?

 

We'll be featuring what we find in our May issue of Successful Farming magazine as well airing a 30-minute special on the Machinery Show, which will air on RFD-TV on June 6, 2013.

 

What are your thoughts on the technology? Would you be interested in using sUAS in your farming operation? Why or why not? What obstacles/concerns do you see with this technology?
