Artist’s conception of an agricultural “drone” setup


Terry Anderson talks about an artist’s conception of an agricultural “drone” setup, being developed by the same people as Autonomous Tractor Co. of Fargo, N.D. The concept is a trio of a small “Little Bird” drone to find the problems in a field, and the two “Big Bird” drones to carry spray. In this futuristic concept, the spray drones being developed at St. Michael, Minn., would only go to areas where the crop pest problems exist. Photo taken June 24, 2013. (Agweek/Mikkel Pates)
