Practical Applications for UAVs

John Scott, Purdue Extension coordinator for digital agriculture, presented as part of the Data Driven Agriculture webinar series.

For many producers the most practical application for unmanned aerial vehicles – UAVs – is to scout fields and while that is an important use for the technology it only scratches the surface of how these tools can be put to use on the farm and throughout the industry. In his webinar, Scott discussed the various ways to use UAVs or drones as part of a farming operation.
