Fintan Corrigan Drones In Agriculture 03/11/2015 @ 4:02am I think drones can save Farmers in many ways. Surveying buildings and fencing which farmers probably don't have time to do often enough. Then with sensors, farmers can monitor crops for disease or to see where they need more irrigation. Or with cameras, farmers can spot leaks in their water systems. Many positive uses. Drones are quite cheap in comparison to other farm machinery. The 3D Robotics X8-M for aerial mapping is about USD 5400 and the X8+ is about USD 1650 for aerial filming and photos. So definitely they are good value around the farm.
