Agronomy Update

UAV's, NCLB and Japanese Beetles in Indiana

Author: Denny Cobb

As Indiana corn continues to grow, scouting efforts have become more difficult. With some fields averaging over 8 feet tall, patterns are impossible to see from inside the field, which in turn makes diagnosing a field much more difficult. UAV's have proven to be a useful scouting tool in our research this summer, allowing agronomists to see the field from a broad perspective without getting into an airplane or helicopter.

One of our interns, Kalen, has been exploring this same question while using his UAV at our Practical Farm Research (PFR)® facility in London, OH.
