Drone technology will take centre stage at Farmer Day Wednesday at this year’s Parkes Show next week. Some leading drone experts, suppliers, manufacturers and service providers will showcase the newest tools available to farmers and drone enthusiasts. Ben Watts, a sheep producer from Molong, will outline what is achievable with drones and how to control, maintain and repair your craft. Falcon UAV is a specialist aerial imaging company focusing entirely on the agriculture industry. They scan crops and determine levels of stress weeks before they are visible to the human eye.
Leading Edge Electronics will showcase all the models and touch on some exciting game changing tools in the production pipeline. One lucky visitor will walk away with a DJI Phantom 3 thanks to Leading Edge Electronics and the Parkes Show. Don’t forget the day starts with a breakfast before the feature drone sessions commence at 10am. There are also sessions on lice management, compost and humus products, a showcase of the very latest agricultural machinery releases and a BBQ lunch. Come and see first hand what the Parkes Show has to offer.
