kbfa- Agricultural Drones

During this online event, we explored the use of drones for agriculture and how they might be useful to farmers.

  • Boundary cattle rancher Devin Chursinoff and KBFA advisor Andrew Bennett described their experience with drones and free satellite data to map farms and vegetation quality.

  • John Church, researcher at Thompson Rivers University, presented his work including using drones on cattle ranches to improve herd management, and save time and money.

  • Chris Noske, horticulturalist and entrepreneur, spoke to his Langley-based company, ProAg, which is the only in BC licensed to sell and operate huge (7-foot wing span!) drones to spray foliar amendments.
