Springfield, Ohio-based Clark State Community College is adding a precision agriculture degree program this fall that will make use of data acquired by unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

The program will be a mix of traditional agriculture classes and courses related to data analytics, according to an article by the Dayton Daily News.

The article notes that the ‘program will focus not on flying or operating [UAS], but on being able to understand and analyze information provided by the UAS as they transmit everything from the mix of chemicals in the soil to the amount of fertilizer being used.’
