Join us for the seventh in our series of yearlong webinars.
In this webinar, you
will learn how your colleagues are using Unmanned Aircraft Systems for
agricultural research with implications for on farm applications.
Using Unmanned Aircraft for Insect and Disease Management:
Dr. Ian MacRae of The University of Minnesota, Crookston will report on using remote sensing mounted on
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS or drones) to determine the within-field distribution
of insects and plant disease in various agricultural cropping systems.
