Howard Brown – Drones
Tom learned that drones have done a lot in agriculture, according to Howard Brown of Illini FS.
Last year the airborne tools were used to examine areas in fields that needed replanting at a much more efficient level.
There are drones at the local Illini FS office. Howard uses his to check out problem areas at any part of the field while standing in one spot. He can record video or still shots and give exact information to the farmer.
