TechTour: Chad Colby's Top Tips for Integrating UAV Technology on the Farm


Moving UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) out of the military and industrial industries and into agriculture has piqued more than a few farmers’ attentions. And for good reason — the ability to get a bird’s-eye view of thousands of acres in a short time frame has nearly endless potential for field applications, but how do farmers make it pay?

For this edition of TechTour, Shaun Haney talks to Chad Colby, UAV specialist and experience pilot. Colby says that farmers not only see the inherent value of the equipment now, but also see the potential of building off the technology. Farmers are keen to learn not just what UAVs can do know, but how to push the limits of what’s currently possible and get those very cool tools really delivering value on the farm.
