As the technology continues to improve, people like Bob Hoffos, a GPS/GIS instructor for the land and water resources program at Werklund School of Agriculture and Technology at Olds College of Agriculture and Technology, is leading the way when it comes to what drones can do for growers and agronomists.

In this episode of Inputs, Hoffos talks about how drones can make a farmer’s life easier, what type of sensors and cameras are used, where current regulations stand when it comes to drone usage and what he expects to see with the technology in the coming years.
