Old MacDonald Had A Drone...

A couple of words you probably did not expect to see together: "farming" and "drones". The remote controlled small aircraft we refer to as drones can be useful to farmers as well as the other uses we have seen them put to so far.
Agribotix, a startup that specializes in developing drone technology for agriculture, explains on their website that drones can snap images and maps of farmers’ fields, allowing them to observe the health of their crops, identify weeds and pests, and predict yields.
Sensefly, the drone-making company, boasts that the gadgets can produce clear photos, even when there is cloud cover, making it more desirable than the satellite imaging many farmers currently use to assess crop health.
