The VCE Agriculture & Horticulture class is currently studying emerging technology.  A device that farmers are starting to embrace is the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle).  Phil Lyons spoke to the class about the ‘wings’ and ‘drones’ available to farmers.  The UAV’s take aerial photographs of the land and crops, the photographic data tells the farmer about the health of the crops which enables them to make strategic decisions about their business.  The students asked insightful questions of Phil and enjoyed the flight demonstration.
