“Not all drones are created equal,” Dr.

Originally shared by Gary Mortimer

“Not all drones are created equal,” Dr. Kevin Price, a Kansas State University professor of agronomy and geography told the audience at the Wednesday noon presentation on drone technology at the Great Bend Farm and Ranch Expo.

The unmanned aviation vehicles (UAVs) Price spoke of at the Barton County Young Professionals sponsored demonstration have a completely different mission than Predator class drones used by the military for reconnaissance purposes.  Instead of gathering information about enemy locations, these small unmanned drones are being put to work gathering the same information in minutes that have taken hundreds of man hours of hands on work for ag researchers, farmers and agronomists to perform, and its being done comparably cheaply to boot.
