Description

Jonathan Gill will discuss the development of drones being used for more than just media work. In the last year, new Drones have been developed to work in agriculture as a tool, not a gimmick. These “second generation” drones can help aid decisions made by agronomists, work on nutrient plans and now, being used to do real work on the land. Spray drones are the next generation of flying tools that will be working with the future farm and aiding in increased precision.

This talk will cover some of the basics new to Drone operations, and one direction of their future being researched at Harper Adams University.

Jonathan will also discuss the “Hands Free Hectare” project which he is involved with:
