Current and Future Applications of Unmanned Aircraft Systems in Precision Agriculture - West Coast Nut
Farmers continue to turn to new technology to help them manage and produce a healthy crop. One such technology, Unmanned Aircraft Systems are becoming increasingly popular in farming applications. In California alone, an estimated 1 in 10 farmers and 1 in 5 principle farm operators currently utilize UAS tech as part of their farming operations.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are increasingly being utilized in farming applications throughout California’s Central Valley. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) anticipates that the adoption of UAS technology will continue to dramatically increase over the next several years.
