UAV Technology, Beyond Weed Scouting

UAV technology is being incorporated into agriculture, from scouting crops and fruit trees to counting and tracking cattle. Two members of the GROW team are working on projects to incorporate UAVs into weed management. Dr. Muthu Bagavathiannan’s graduate students Bishwa Sapkota and Spencer Samuelson from Texas A&M University and Dr. Wesley Everman from NCSU highlight their ongoing research projects and its application for farmers and crop advisors.
