Interest and application of unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, in agriculture is rapidly growing, but what role will precision farming dealers play in delivery and service of this technology?

Gretchen West serves as executive vice president of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and serves as an advocate for UAV use in a variety of sectors, including agriculture. She has an intimate knowledge of the tremendous potential UAV technology holds, along with the regulatory obstacles to widespread adoption.

From quadcopters to fixed-wing vehicles, what are the most economical options on the market today and what capabilities do each provide for crop scouting, data collection and aerial mapping?

According to West, precision farming dealers first need to understand UAV technology before they can begin to take advantage of its revenue potential. In this webinar event, West explains the value of UAVs in agriculture, market potential for dealers and ongoing challenges associated with sales and service of the technology.

Here's what you'll learn:

Considerations for dealers when deciding if and how they want to incorporate UAV technology into their precision business
The scope of products on the market today and determining what customers are candidates for UAVs
Current regulatory challenges limiting UAV use and what dealers need to know before they begin selling the technology

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
