Drones are being used in agriculture more and more. Every year it seems the base of producers, agronomists, and ag retailers are incorporating drones into their operations to help gain important, timely and precise data about their crops. You can't go to an agricultural conference without being bombarded with information about how drones are providing huge value to farming operations.
But some of the greatest hurdles faced by producers to effectively incorporate unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) include confusion about regulations, drone capability restrictions (flight time, range, etc.), and data collection and processing headaches.
We hear about it all the time!
"I have a drone, but it's just collecting dust on the shelf!"
"All of these new drone regulations and rules are too restrictive and confusing!"
"I don't know how to use the drone to actually collect usable data... it's just basically a toy!"
Not anymore! We are hosting a special course to help producers, agronomists and ag retailers get the most out of their drones!
UAV Ground School - Agricultural Drone Training course!
We are coming to Southport, Manitoba (about 5 minutes south of Portage la Prairie) on February 21-22nd 2018, and then the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon on February 27-28th to host this industry-specific UAV Ground School - Ag Drone Training course.
We will answer the following questions (and more!):
- Which drone(s) are the best for gathering farm data?
- Which sensor(s) can provide crop health information?
- What software do you need to fly, process, analyze and share data?
- How do you gather data using drones?
- How do you make sense of the drone data?
- How can you get value from the drone data?
- What drone regulations do you need to be aware of?
- When does it make sense to gather crop health data?
- How do you make drone operations more efficient?
