Agribotix Solo drone AGCO EditionIn February, we headed down to the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky. This show is a big one, attracting over 300,000 people, with 800 exhibitors in 1.2 million square feet.

We were surprised by the number of people who
were already flying drones for agriculture. Many told us they were spending more time processing the data they collected than they were flying and were excited to be able to offload the processing
to Agribotix.

A year ago, at a show like this, we were answering questions like, “Why would I want a drone?” At this year’s NFMS, the conversations all started with, “I know I am going to have a drone on my farm some day….” This is a significant shift of attitude in very short time.

Common wisdom would tell you that farmers are a conservative lot. But not if you make the right benefits case and give them the tools they need – I have to agree with the author, amazing how far, how fast.
