I’m a university student doing research on drone usage in agriculture.
I’m really interested in what problems farmers have found in the practical application of drones/UAS?
I’d really appreciate some discussion on the following questions:
What automation/machinery do you use already on your farm that you find advanced? What do you appreciate about those tools? What do you find frustrating about those tools?
What logistical/implementation problems make drone systems not worthwhile?
What benefits would drones have to provide to make it worth the hassle?
How important is the autonomy of the drone? Should it fly itself, or would you prefer to fly it manually?
Is there [on average, at least]one to two days a week where weather is flyable (not windy, raining/snowing/hailing) in your area?
Thanks for your time!
