Entira Inc., an agricultural marketing and management firm, along with the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), is organizing a two-day conference that will showcase the on-farm uses of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The Delta AgTech Symposium event, held July 7-8, will take place at the Agricenter International in Memphis, Tenn., and is being sponsored by FarmSpace Systems and Horizon Precision Systems.
The event will bring together crop consultants, agronomists, farmers and the businesses who serve them, along with UAV manufacturers and researchers, to collectively explore how UAV technology can be integrated into farming practices.
UAV technology and flight demonstrations, speakers, and a trade show for organizations to share knowledge and solutions will also take place.
Confirmed speakers include leaders from the following organizations: Federal Aviation Administration, FarmSpace Systems, AUVSI, Middle Tennessee State University, National Agricultural Aviation Association, NextGen Air Transportation Center at the Institute of Transportation Research and Education at North Carolina State University, Horizon Precision Systems, RoboFlight Systems, and Ausley McMullen – a law firm working with emerging UAS regulations.
‘From Entira's vantage point, we're seeing an imminent need for agribusinesses to get up to speed with UAV technology so we can help pave the way for farmers. Now is the time for agribusinesses and farmers to learn more and consider the important role this technology will play on farms in the near future,’ says Mike Karst, Entira senior partner.
