Technology is constantly changing how farmers plant and grow their crops. Agricultural drones are the newest addition to farmers technological toolkit and will transform the way farmers assess their crops throughout the growing season. The technology already exists with drone manufacturers like DJI and software from DroneDeploy. AgDrone will provide farmers with the data necessary to improve yields and cut costs.

Technology is constantly changing how farmers plant and grow their crops.

AgDrone will provide farmers with the data necessary to improve yields and cut costs. Farmers are waiting for drone technology to become more readily available. The FAA drone regulations held back many potential businesses, but with new regulations announced on August 29, 2016, there is a huge opportunity to fly drones commercially. There will be many potential applications of drone work for farmers, but initially AgDrone will focus on Crop Surveying and Crop Health Assessment as potential service opportunities. In the long run, AgDrone aims to provide farmers with services that not only increase farmersí profits, but also allows them to create a more environmentally and economically sustainable business.
