John Nowatzki, a North Dakota State University Extension Service agricultural engineer in Fargo, is helping to coordinate field studies of unmanned aerial vehicles, in cooperation with University of North Dakota experts in Grand Forks. The UND team on May 5 started flying missions using a smaller helicopter UAV for studying green crop and weed density, among other things. NDSU on May 29 acquired its own Trimble UX5, a $50,000 fixed UAV, which will be used in mid-June to compare the systems.
