Farmers Turn To Drones For Field Operations
The Federal Aviation Administration recently came out with regulations about drones — aircrafts that can fly without a pilot on board.
The FAA says drones must be five miles away from an airport at all times and fly no higher than 400 feet. Those regulations are lenient enough that farmers and ranchers are starting to find ways to integrate this new technology into their work.
