The farming industry in Ireland has become more progressive in recent years through various tenhnological advances. They have embraced more eco friendly farming equipment and techniques. Crop scouting has also seen advances with drones being used to fly over their fields and take photos and videos to give farmers an idea of the current state of their farmland. This has been a great time saver as they can cover acres of land and and provide data to help make more informed decisions in a fraction of the time it would normally take to do manually.
The hiring of professionals who specialise in this area is becoming more popular in the farming industry and the amount of drone hiring businesses is starting to grow as the potential applications increase. It will be interesting to watch how this industry develops in the coming years as there are no doubt other areas which drones could help in.
