Columbia Daily Tribune recently reported that Bill Wiebold, professor at the University of Missouri, shared his ideas about how drones could be used for farming. One of the uses of drones according to Wiebold is for detecting problems in a farmer’s fields by use of aerial photographs.
From Columbia Daily Tribune:
“Wiebold said infrared sensors could determine where in a field crops are diseased or damaged. He said drones could help farmers determine the effects on crops from herbicides and other farming practices.”
