9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or drones, as they are sometimes called, are increasingly used to watch over agricultural crops. Special cameras can detect and assess nutrient deficits, diseases & pests based on the temperature and color of plants. This technology allows for farmers to precisely monitor large areas and target only those areas that need attention. Learn how these cameras work and see examples of their application.
