Agricultural drones

From a report at the United Soybean Board:
With the ability to fly over a soybean field and spot insects at the leaf level or identify nitrogen deficiencies within a row, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) could revolutionize the way farmers scout and manage their fields...

Everyone focuses on the UAV. It’s really about the data,” says Paul, whose company specializes in the development, leasing and sale of UAVs for academia, agriculture, environmental services and industry. “UAVs will be able to detect the vigor of plants throughout the field and provide detailed information about everything from fertilizer uptake to soil moisture.”
