2015 was the year agriculture drones take off.
Harvesting is the most labor-intensive chore for many crops.
The future of precision agriculture is very exciting and the term Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) will eventually be referred to as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to correctly identify these highly engineered, safe and valuable tools that will increase profitability for future crop production.
Drones with advanced sensors and imaging capabilities are giving farmers new ways to increase yields and reduce crop damage.
PICKER DRONES Inc. is the agricultural robotics company specialized in UAVs that provides fully supported, easy-to-use drone-enabled technologies and services, purpose-built for precision agriculture.
With the global population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, agricultural production must double to meet the demand. And because of limited arable land, productivity must increase 25% to help meet that goal.
Drones are expected to change how we cultivate and grow food across the country. Unmanned aerial vehicles are being used to map, observe, sense and spray.
