Drones in Agriculture | VDI Workshop

The VDI Workshop "Drones in Agriculture" shows you which drones are available for use in agriculture and presents strategies for drone applications. You will learn about the potentials and limitations of this future technology in detail and get insight into the legal framework conditions. Numerous best practices ensure high practical relevance.

Aerial reconnaissance enables "smart" agriculture

Drones as well as "smart farming” concepts are an essential element of precision agriculture. Equipped with special sensors and cameras, they supply time and site-specific detailed information on the condition of the crops and soil. With this knowledge, farmers can utilise their resources much more efficiently.

The Workshop "Drones in Agriculture" gives you an overview of the drones available on the market and shows you what strategies and concepts have proven themselves when using the practical flying aids.

Learn more about the following topics during the Special Day:

  • Types of drones and sensors for use in agriculture
  • State of the art and future developments
  • Potentials and limitations in the different application fields such as the monitoring of plant health, yield prediction, pest damage, and much more.
  • Integration of the data collected in the agricultural operational management
  • Cost/benefit ration: Drones vs. standard techniques

Who is the event aimed at?

The VDI Workshop "Drones in Agriculture" appeals to experts and executives who use, manufacture or distribute drones for agricultural applications. These include in particular:

  • Farmers and agricultural cooperatives
  • Development engineers, design engineers and purchasers of agricultural machinery manufacturers
