Remote Sensing Applications in Agriculture: How Drone Data Provides Value to Growers and Researchers
Tuesday, May 09, 2017: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
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.
Who Should AttendThis panel is intended for anyone interested in how drone-based data for agricultural applications can be used in the real world. Target audience includes agricultural/drone service providers, researchers, unmanned system manufacturers and integrators, and solutions providers.
