Following the huge success of the Drones for Farming Conference in 2015, this year’s event is set to be bigger, including presentations of new applications for drones in agriculture.

The use of drones, equipped with state-of-the-art cameras, continues to grow. They are used to monitor and map areas producing data to measure crops, help improve yield and plan interventions. 

Drones have capabilities beyond imaging and data capture, which can provide other solutions to modern day precision issues.

Progress is moving swiftly at the National Centre for Precision Farming at Harper Adams University, where we are investigating second generation drones, which have a wider range of commercial agricultural applications. Their ability to target small areas means that they will be able to reseed where crops have failed to emerge and to make targeted applications of chemicals and fertilisers to small zones within fields.
