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.

"The civil drone market is ready to take off," said Philip Finnegan, Teal Group's director of corporate analysis and author of the study. Eased airspace regulations, a flood of outside investment, new UAS service offerings and the entry of leading technology companies are setting the stage for very rapid growth."
Catie Noyes for Farm and Dairy: The world of digital agriculture is continuing to advance before our eyes, says John Fulton, associate professor in Ohio States College of Food Agriculture and Biological Engineering.

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
