With the hype concerning drones and their contributions to precision agriculture we offer this thought:
The promise is that drones and robots will, to the large extant, make precision agriculture happen.
But, it is important to keep in mind that drones and robots and aircraft and satellites and trailers with poles and even trees and buildings are only busses.
Precision Agriculture is about delivering affordable precise information to the manager / agronomist / irrigation system / tractor / spreader / harvester …..
Today Hawk-Eye Systems are delivering precise information and it can be deployed in a variety of affordable ways (on lots of different busses).
When/if the technology / price point to the customer/acre/day makes a drone or robot affordable; a Hawk-Eye System is ready to jump on the bus.
