“The IoT has future-proofed my career in farming.
"We use the drone to review and survey the spreading of fertiliser across the field. This gives us an aerial view from which we can see the pattern of the spread and monitor how evenly it has been applied.
The drone covers a wide range and significant distances, which would be time-consuming and difficult to manage on foot, whilst also providing a unique and highly valuable perspective. The effective application of fertiliser can improve crop production in an environmentally sustainable way. The drone allows us to check and verify the distribution that is determined by the GPS and Trimble technologies."
