With the modern farming industry continuing to evolve, and demand for faster, more efficient farmland mapping at an all-time high, the potential for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the agriculture industry is greater than ever. While more investment in R&D programmes is required, collaborative partnerships between hardware and software providers are enabling the creation of more integrated, end-to-end drone solutions, capable of meeting the needs of agriculture professionals worldwide and influencing future developments in modern farming.
