There is a big future in drones, but the agriculture just might be one of the industries that benefits the most. In fact, once the FAA decides what will be regulated, this is something that will completely revolutionize the industry.
Farmers are going to be able to drastically cut costs, while being more efficient than ever. The first thing that drones will take over is the job of crop dusting. Traditionally, this has required expensive plane missions that involved fuel, pilots, and more, but a drone can easily replace that.
Drones will also make it possible to monitor crops more easily and on a more frequent basis. Without the need to hire a pilot on a daily basis to survey the land, a farmer can quickly check on their crops without having to worry.
At the end of the day, though, the applications to agriculture are virtually endless. Several farmers recently spoke to USA Today and said that they are finding that a single investment has paid off more than almost anything they have done in the past. It is important to always stay efficient, always be on top of changes, and constantly look for ways to improve yields, which are all things that a drone can take care of.
