Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have become one of the hottest topics in agriculture today.
If you’re curious about how UAVs could impact your farming operation or business, you may want to check out the Delta AgTech Symposium: Advancing UAVs in Agriculture July 7-8 at Agricenter International in Memphis, TN.
Sponsored by agricultural marketing and management firm Entira, with support from the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), the symposium will bring together crop consultants, agronomists, farmers, and the businesses who serve them – along with UAV manufacturers and researchers – to collectively explore how this technology can be integrated into farming practices.
The two-day event will include demonstrations of the aircraft, speakers, and a trade show for organizations and manufacturers to share their knowledge and solutions.
“Agriculture is expected to be the predominant user of these specialized aircraft when the FAA finalizes regulations for commercial use,” said Mike Karst, Entira senior partner. “Now is the time for agribusinesses and farmers to learn more and consider the important role this technology will play on farms in the near future.
“We’re excited about the interest in the conference across all sectors of agriculture,” he added. “The lineup of speakers and demonstrations will give attendees a valuable preview into the technologies that may be available to them in coming years.”
According to a report from AUVSI, agriculture will account for an estimated 80 percent of all UAV commercial usage.
A schedule of demonstrations and presentations, as well as registration information, is available on the Delta AgTech Symposium website.
