Webinar: Precision Agriculture in the Drone Age
Wednesday, December 07, 2016, 03:00pm - 04:00pm

 

Farmers embraced the application of aviation technology a century ago with the spread of aerial crop dusting practices and today agriculturists are improving the quantity and quality of their crop yields by integrating UAS into farming practices. UAS are currently being used for all types of applications, from detection of invasive species to being able to monitor for droughts.

As the FAA further enables the use of UAS technologies, data collected from agricultural remote sensing will become the standard for crop management. This webinar will examine emerging agricultural applications of UAS and how next generation farmers will improve agribusiness by further integrating UAS and modifying the technology to suit their needs. Discussion topics will include:

  • Practical solutions for remote sensing within precision agriculture
  • Science-guided tools for monitoring crop health
  • Integrated solutions that support the future of farming

Who Should Attend

  • UAS Manufacturers
  • Anyone involved in agriculture interested in learning about the application of unmanned systems
  • Agricultural engineers and researchers
  • Subsystems and components suppliers

Speaker

  • Alyssa Ryan, Customer Engagement Manager, MicaSense
