Description

The use of unmanned aircraft for agricultural applications continues to increase as regulations that enable drone operations become more established. Whether for academic or enterprise research, farming production, or scouting/early disease detection, the potential applications are vast. This panel explores how tangible value can be derived from drone-based remote sensing across multiple types of agricultural missions. The panelists focus will be to separate hype from reality and at the same time provide a vision for how these technologies may be implemented in the future. This panel will provide perspective from the point of view of agronomists, drone service providers, data analytics providers, and academic researchers.
