Agricultural drones are giving growers new ways to increase yield and reduce crop damage by being able to identify the problem before it can be seen by the naked eye.
This cutting edge technology will be showcased at the YLAD Living Soils 14th annual Field Day.
YLAD Living Soils are bringing natural resource scientist James Rennie from Australian UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) to speak at the Field Day.
Drones can provide growers with three types of detailed views.
Firstly, seeing a crop from the air can reveal patterns that expose everything from irrigation problems to soil variation.
Secondly, airborne cameras can take multispectral images, capturing data from the infrared as well as the visual spectrum.
Finally, a drone can survey a crop every week, every day, or even every hour to assess and monitor crop health.
Go and see INSPIRE 1 at the YLAD Living Soils 14th annual Field Day on Thursday, September 15.
