It has been a while since I have had time to sit down and write a blog entry but as we close Memorial Day with bad weather some time has presented itself to write some thoughts on the use of UAS as crop scouting tools.
The truth is that interest in the application caught me off guard. I have been focused on mapping for the past few years and did not really see much benefit in small scale mapping using rotary wing systems. Well was I wrong. The first I was asked if the rotary wing systems I use would be useful as a crop scout was about twelve months ago and I had to think twice about it.
