TechTour: Aerial Application Innovations & the Future of UAVs for Field Work


A high-clearance sprayer simply can’t compete with the efficiency of aerial application of some crop protection products. But just because a plane can cover farm more acres than ground units doesn’t mean there isn’t a drive to do the job better and more efficiently.

On this stop of the Dow AgroSciences’ TechTour, Paul O’Carroll, of the Saskatchewan Aerial Applicators Association, talks about the benefits of aerial application, how GPS and variable rate technology is playing a role in this part of the agriculture industry and adds some surprising thoughts on the current use of UAVs in crop production.
