Unmanned aircraft to play key role in future of agriculture

By Clint Thompson, University of Georgia

Welcome to the future of agriculture with remote-controlled helicopters and unmanned aircraft equipped with imaging sensors.

Farmers and technology experts from across the Southeast got a glimpse of the future recently at the Atlanta Chapter of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s Unmanned Systems in Agriculture Conference at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center.

Unmanned vehicle developers hope the new technologies will make farming more cost effective, and better for society and the environment.
