Drones and the Future of Farming | National Geographic

From driverless tractors to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), farming technology is rapidly evolving. Farmers can use drones to identify specific plants that are diseased or infested with bugs, to save water and resources, and to get a bird’s-eye view of their crops.

    FAA is working to snuff this out. Big corporations like Amazon want hobbyists and anyone who is not working for a corporation out of uncontrolled class G airspace.

    WOW 2:33  CHECK OUT THOSE CHEMTRAILS… OMG!!!  They got hit hard over there, its such a shame too, think about all those chemicals on the crops that WE EAT!!!

    very cool vid. my channel shows a lot of cotton harvesting videos from an aerial view as well.

    Fewer immigrants, fewer babies, a better way. Smaller population, tweaked to fit on "available" land (much of it in reserve for rich folks to tourist on), and we grow our own food, maybe to trade (I want oranges in Vermont), but seasonally. Cucumbers that don’t rot two days after I buy them, berries that last over a month…I pick them myself. Yeah, I get Ricardo’s Law: but food isn’t money. Food is food.

    The carbon nanotubes in the crops are going into your body and they stay active… conductive and reactive to wifi. They clump in your veins and under 100 nanometers they go in the organs. Welcome to the cloud. —–It’s all here for your own good.

    Thanks, science

    1st? fighting…

  13. Val ONeill on April 5, 2021 at 1:17 am

    Insecticides! Pesticides this is not agriculture"s answer, just look at BIG AGRA! The solutions are in permaculture and sustainable farming.

    Reminds me of Interstellar

  18. bokeflo on April 5, 2021 at 1:22 am

    Food and Flight, using drones to help farmers

  19. Hi hey on April 5, 2021 at 1:23 am

  20. AnhTu, Phuc Hoang on April 5, 2021 at 1:24 am

  22. Bart Bruni on April 5, 2021 at 1:27 am

    This is awesome, we at Bruni IR crop surveys offer Precision Ag. services TO increase yield, minimize water pesticide and fertilizer usage. Our drone team has a state of the art drone that can fly 1,000 acres per HOUR all day if necessary an the F.A.A. waiver to fly it 25 miles Beyond Line Of Visual Sight. Nat Geo finds the best stories.

    2:31 Wow look at all those Chem trails

  25. Col. Walter E. Kurtz on April 5, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Interstellar or Sky Net?

  26. Amitabh B Chaudhary on April 5, 2021 at 1:32 am

    India needs drones for 1000 uses BUT corrupt Govt system and Corrupt Terrorist supporting Public will not let it done. Govt system and Police will import it for useless purpose at 100 times cost to be dumped in stores or for their kids to play. Operators will be appointed to fly it at commercial Pilots rate. This is sure. Kejriwal brought dummy fogger machine at 19 lakhs with no use at all. They are not serious at all.

  27. Axel Deltour on April 5, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Les seules personnes qui regardent cette vidéo le font pour ce put*in de devoir d’anglais en ingé j’parie

  28. Tom A. on April 5, 2021 at 1:36 am

    it’s going to be who controls the worlds food for example you’ve seen the seedless watermelon owe ya they make genetically modified food so no one can buy seeds to plant, and guess who has most of original seeds stored none other than Al Gore and his buddies the Clintons, wow he starts a global scare while he takes control of something else to control the population if you don’t believe it try growing some then the next year try to replant the seeds you will have nothing another example is Heirloom tomatoes they are only one that are not GMO modified and they will replant and have all nutrients also look up “bad seed

  29. zudemaster on April 5, 2021 at 1:37 am

    Guess we don’t need Mexicans after all.

  30. zSuperCrazyz on April 5, 2021 at 1:39 am
