White Paper Summary

Every day, technology has a way of integrating itself into businesses when you least expect it. Take unmanned aerial vehicles (more commonly called drones) and their growing use in the field of agriculture. On larger farms, drones are being utilized for tasks like crop spraying since it’s estimated to be five times faster than traditional machines. But how are smaller farms taking advantage of this rapidly expanding technology? Are these farmers using drones for traditional tasks like planting, spraying, and irrigating crops? Or have more unique applications taken root? Munich Re surveyed roughly 200 farmers in the US who are utilizing drones to find out how this growing technology is transforming agriculture.
