Drones Might Make 2024 Easier

It’s a bird – it’s a plane – no, it’s a drone. And you’re probably going to see more of them flying in 2024.

Finn Johnson, agricultural business development manager at Madison Area Drone Service, says the busy season for drone providers is typically now. After the rush of the harvest, growers sit down to explore how these aircraft might make their lives easier for the following growing season.

Some of the solutions that drones bring to the farm: cover crop seeding without damage and precision fungicide applications. 

Because of the licensure and recommended practice time, Johnson says make your decision now so that you’re ready to operate your new device by spring.
