Whether you refer to it as a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles), sUAS (small unmanned aerial systems), or drone, the technology has the potential to provide a cutting-edge way for farmers to monitor their crops, grasslands, and cattle without ever stepping foot in a field.

It's a technology that is currently being used in other countries like France, Japan, Spain and Uruguay.

"Around the world they are already using this type of technology for things like spraying," says Rory Paul, Volt Aerial Robotics. "And they’ve been doing it for 20 years in some cases. You can do different things with this technology – scouting, mapping, spraying and maybe in the future sampling. We an see the scenario where an intelligent Quadcopter will drop down to the field and maybe take a sample."
