Drones are cool – every drone geek will raise hands first. What about people in other domains of life? Do they like drones? Can a drone be useful in every aspect of life?

Every person has the ability to soar high in the sky – Drones can be your eyes – and yes you can fly. With this feeling, Nick Otto, a proprietor of Otto Ag in Crystal, N.D. has done something which is fanatically cool in the agro-based sector.

Otto stood on a corn field one day and he knew it was true that he has a good experience in the fields, but solely depending upon his eyes could not help him. What if he could monitor the fields by flying high in the sky with the help of drones, he thought? Adding up experience and technology can result in a marvellous combination after all.

There are many aspects in a field that needs close inspection. Fertilizer, for instance, is something very crucial for farmers – a farmer needs to be smart about how much fertilizer needed to be used such that it is fully utilised.

The knowledge about the number of corn plants growing in fields helps Otto to thereby guide his farmer client about these aspects in the field. Thus, Otto has decided to deal with this situation in the coolest way possible – with the help of drones.

Otto is now using drones to help collect info about the corn fields by taking multiple images of the field at a flight speed of 24 kmph. The images taken by these fantabulous flying marvels can be compiled into a single image to study the fertilizer requirements for the fields.

Drones for the Future

Drones for the future!

It is estimated that 160,000 agro-based drones will be sold annually by 2025 with – believe it or not – only 20,000 for others.

Drones are the most awesome piece of flying objects that have revolutionized the world and the way we interpret it. It is finding applications in every major area of concern – sometimes we don’t expect some of them because they are Super Cool!

Drones are indeed changing the face of technology and we are moving towards the days when “Fictions will be factualised..”
