CAA approved drone pilots are playing an
increasingly important role in worldwide
agriculture. Against a backdrop of a growing
world population, faced with the challenge of
sustaining food production with dwindling
resources, drones can offer a reasonably priced
precision farming solution.

How can Drones Help The ability to scan large
tracts of land that by their nature, inhibit
access and manoeuvrability is something that is
ideally suited to an unmanned aerial vehicles.
Much time can be saved over a ground level survey
when assessing land condition, crop health and
identifying problem areas. There is also less
risk of damage to crops from vehicles when the
camera is in the sky.

In fact, this month DJI (Chinas leading
commercial drone company) have announced an
increase in their marketing spend to the farming
community in an effort to raise awareness of what
UAVs have to offer the world of agriculture. A
cynic might say that this change in focus shows
issues with a dwindling consumer market, but the
fact remains that industrial drone usage is
undoubtedly a growth area and land management
will form a key component of this.

If the goal of precision agriculture is to apply
the valuable resources a farmer has available to
create the maximum yield they can, then data will
be key. The drones ability to quickly and
simply gather geo-tagged images of fields over
time will be the cornerstone of this data
gathering process. The images can be more
frequent than aerial images created using manned
aircraft because the cost of creating them is so
much lower and the detail recorded is far greater
than satellite images that would otherwise have
been used.

Agricultural drone services give the ability to
cover large areas of terrain, even if the areas
are hard to access on foot, makes it ideal for
the application of sprays to treat weeds or
disease. While this is currently not legal in
the UK, companies such as Drone AG are currently
conducting trials and working with the CAA with
the hope of making this potential a reality in
2019. It is likely that others wont be far
behind which will put an automation solution
within easy reach of many farm operators.
