Agricultural drone investing | Energy and Capital

“Although farms used to be small enough in size for human and ground-based surveillance, consolidation has led to massive fields that cannot be traversed by land in a timely manner. Instead, farmers now need to view their land from the sky.  This point of view can be obtained with satellite imaging, planes, or helicopters.  However, these methods provide low resolution images and are very expensive.  Autonomous imaging drones offer a better service at a cheaper price, which is exactly why the AUVSI expects precision agriculture to see substantial growth in the next two decades.”
