From the bush to the Army and back to the bush – we chat about drones and agriculture. As Mark Twain said, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
From being country born and bred, we understand the unique nature of horticulture and broad-acre farming coupled with the need and use of usable data to inform decision making and ultimately provide a return on investment. We believe we’ve cracked this return on investment decision, which we discuss during this episode. We talk about high-resolution drones used in agriculture, using artificial intelligence to both detect weeds and offer insights on paddocks that you might not otherwise be aware of, high density crop scouting. Farmers also have a record they can look back on to see how the decisions have made a difference. Drones in agriculture have become part of the standard tool-set for farmers to use.
StevTech is impressive. Not only the ridiculously impressive technology, but the honest, trustworthy and hard-working approach to supporting one of Australia’s most important industries – agriculture. We hear ‘help the farmers’ – we are doing that every day.
In this episode we also chat farming technology, barriers to success, the future of the industry and how Twitter is being used for common sense, decent and informative discussion on west!
