What is the future of drones in precision agriculture?

5 Valuable Lessons Learned About Drones in Precision Agriculture

Earlier this week we shared a report and video from Skylogic Research discussing the future of drones in mining and aggregates. Today we are sharing their thought on drones in precision agriculture. The team from Skylogic Research discuss how to gather the necessary strategies to extract maximum value out of drone-use in precision agriculture. Some of the topics they discuss include:

  • Gaining value beyond NDVI
  • Calculating ROI and properly separating drone data from your current VRT tracking
  • Basics of certification and regulatory requirements

This is the second in a new series of Skylogic Research white papers intended to share lessons learned within specific industries. These reports will help you as a business owner in those industries maximize the value that drones can deliver. This year we are building on the analysis we did for the 2016 “Truth About” papers by incorporating real-world experience gained from businesses and drone pilots operating under the Federal Aviation Administration’s Small Unmanned Aircraft (UAS) Regulations (aka FAA Part 107).

As of March 21, 2017, FAA data indicates there are more than 37,000 drone operators certified under Part 107 and 44,000 commercial drones registered in the U.S.
