As we all know, running a farm is hard work; tending to the many animals, monitoring the crops, and maintaining hundreds of acres are not easy tasks. Farms are not only labor intensive, they are also incredibly expensive. If we refer to farmers who specialize in growing crops, almost half of their income goes to purchasing fertilizers. This is just one example of how much time and effort is put in to running this type of operation. With that being said, farmers are constantly looking for ways to run their business more efficiently. The newest trend: drones. Read the article below published by the Environmental Defense Fund to find out 4 ways drones are making a farmer’s day-to-day tasks less cumbersome.
