Source: Precision Aerial Ag Show news release

Ag Eagle, SenseFly, Horizon Precision, MLB, Trimble, Precision Drone and other makers of unmanned aerial systems will be among many companies exhibiting their precision aerial technology at the Precision Aerial Ag Show, scheduled for July 9 & 10 at Progress City USA, Decatur, Ill.

The technology show is drawing global interest from exhibitors and attendees, who will be watching the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the air and real-time video output. Advanced tickets have been sold to attendees from California to the Carolinas and Texas to the Dakotas.

Headlining the list of speakers at PAAS 2014 are Brendan Schulman, the attorney who successfully represented a photographer whose camera-drone was cited by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as violating its policies, and Idaho farmer Robert Blair, speaking about his pioneering use of UAV technology and 8 years of experience with them.

Also speaking will be several university researchers providing current and future perspectives on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) use in agricultural applications. A panel of farmers will also relate their experiences and use of UAV technology on their farm, along with UAV consultant Chad Colby of Bloomington, IL about making UAV purchase decisions.

The educational seminars are sponsored by ADM Crop Risk Services, Decatur, IL.

This event will be of interest to agricultural producers wanting more information to make crop management decisions, regarding fertility, moisture, pest control, and other efficiencies. There are numerous applications, beyond agriculture, for UAV systems, such as photography, film-making, real estate, and various emergency services.

The Precision Aerial Ag Show also will feature both indoor and outdoor exhibits by a wide variety of vendors demonstrating products and services related to unmanned aerial technology or related applications. Ticket information and advanced ticket sales are at www.paas2014.com.

Plan to Attend
The 2014 Precision Aerial Ag Show will be held July 9 and 10 at Progress City USA, Decatur, IL. The exhibit field and demonstration areas are open to visitors 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The public is welcome.
