Pam Smith for The Progressive Farmer: Drones buzzed overhead a tractor and spray boom projected images to simulate how spray nozzles can use new technology to spray only where weeds had escaped previous controls.
Using Agriculture Drones to Move From Analog to Digital Farming: A Case Study in Quantifying the Return on Investment
For us, the answer on when to go from "analog" to "digital" farming is today. In one growing season, we estimate that we will come out positive on our investment in implementing a "base-plus" variable rate nitrogen program.
Anthony King, From Horizon Magazine: Bee-based maths is helping teach swarms of drones to find weeds, while robotic mowers keep hedgerows in shape.
Lars Wecks for Trend in Tech: A new camera from Cubert, working in collaboration with VITO Remote Sensing and imec, based on research from the European Space Agency, is bringing high-resolution details to precision farming.
Malek Murison for We Talk UAV: Luckily, a few farming pioneers have started using their drones to herd animals, including cattle and sheep, from one place to another.
Japan is one of the first countries using large-scale UAV on plant protection in the world. Take rice as an example, ground vehicles spray about 22% (in 2014), and the proportion of UAV plant protection has reached 36%.
Drones may not replace the honeybee, but dont bet on a future of agriculture that doesnt increasingly depend on their capacity to reinvent 21st century farming.
Phys.org: Thanks to research with ESA on new cameras, hyperspectral cameras flying on drones are now able to see details as small as 4-5 cm.
