Forage Mass Monitoring (FFM) analysis has been traditionally done using biomass sampling to calculate biomass yield per hectare (t ha-1). Current research is now looking at reflectance spectroscopy methods using remote sensing systems based on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones, may soon revolutionize weed management. Equipped with the right tools, researchers say they can be quite effective at both finding and treating problem weeds.
This technology greatly empowers farmers and ranchers by minimizing cost, energy use, and most importantly time in much sophisticated way than ever before. It could be a promising technology in agriculture and ranch management for many farmers and ranchers
As far as drones have evolved over the years, many consumer models still feature a max flight time of around 20 minutes. Some offer as little as five minutes. This fallback can be annoying to those wanting to fly longer than a third of an hour
At the end of the day, the process of scouting a field still takes time. But drones can deliver an 80-95% better success rate of finding issues in the field. They provide precision ag with an efficient, cost-effective manner of scouting.
2017 - Most Popular Article - How do drones help farmers? They increase yields, save time, increase return on investment, are easy to use, crop health imaging, water efficiency and other environmental benefits. Look to the sky.
It does seem a bit strange to have the word "drone" used to not only cover a $30 hobby aircraft that a child can fly, but to also describe a high-tech $10 million weapon used on a battlefield. Those devices don't exactly serve the same purpose. So why don't they have differe
Sales of drones are expected to rise from 2.5 million in 2016 to 7 million in 2020, a staggering 180% increase. This means newer and more varied versions of them are constantly hitting the market, making it difficult to keep up with the different types of models.
