Drones for Farming - Past event

Drones for Farming Conference 2015
Harper Adams University, Thursday 5th November 

Agricultural drone use for high resolution data capture has increased markedly over the last few years. Given the steady developments in drone, sensor, camera, data transmission and data processing technologies, new agricultural applications for these versatile aircraft are progressively emerging. The growing importance of drones to farming is reflected in the development of a strong regulatory framework, a code of practice and a new BASIS registration scheme designed to safeguard their use in agriculture applications. The 2015 Drones for Farming Conference is a great opportunity to hear from experts in the field, see drones and data systems in action and even try flying one yourself in one of our try-fly sessions. The event is aimed at anyone interested in using drones in agriculture including farmers, agronomists and academics, and also users of drones in other sectors who are interested in finding out more about agriculture applications.

The conference is organised by the Unmanned Aerial Systems Special Interest Group of the National Centre for Precision Farming (NCPF) and URSULA Agriculture. URSULA Agriculture is an early adopter of drone technology and provides professional services to farmers. It is also a strong advocate of the use of drones as a complementary platform to wide area aerial survey and satellite systems. The conference is kindly sponsored by Bayer Crop Science. Anyone with BASIS registration will receive 6 points for attending the event.

The conference costs £40 per person. Attendees will receive complementary tea, coffee and lunch as well as a year’s free membership of Drones for Farming.
