The technology solution combines top drone, sensor, and agricultural data processing technologies to make collecting and analyzing aerial data easier than ever with several times more coverage per flight than possible with many quadcopter solutions.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are proving beneficial in evaluating crop potential in season and are becoming useful tools for evaluating cultivars in variety trials, according to reports from the Beltwide Cotton Conferences held recently in Dallas.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles may help farmers improve efficiency as they gather data on crop conditions that will help in-season management decisions. Texas AgriLife research is conducting numerous studies to determine best practices for UAV use.
Technology will change the way we farm, and significant changes will occur within the next decade, says a Texas A&M research scientist at the Texas Plant Protection Association annual conference in ColegeStation.
What role will drones play on farms and ranches in the near future? An important one, said speakers at the recent 53rd annual Stiles Farm Foundation field day in Thrall, Texas. The field day is sponsored by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and...
