U.S.D.A. Spraying Drone Research & Information

Although drones have been spraying fields in Asia for nearly 20 years, the benefits of spraying crops with drones are not widely known in the western part of the world. Sure, spraying fields with a drone makes sense hypothetically, but how effective is it? What about the drift? How are the recovery rates? For the most part, none of this sprayer drone research had been conducted in the United States... we had to change that! So, HSE began working with the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Agriculture Research Service's division to conduct research testing with our most popular spraying drones. We're thrilled with what we've learned and the results have been awesome! The USDA scientists will publish a formal research paper when their findings are complete, but we couldn't wait to show you what we know so far :)
