A good round-up from PrecisionAg.com of all the UAV companies that were demonstrating at this big agricultural technology show this week. (3DR will have a large presence there next year)

With the Federal Aviation Administration expected to open U.S. air space for the commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) by 2015, a growing interest in this emerging technology has developed in the agriculture industry. This enthusiasm was on display at the InfoAg Conference in Springfield, IL, where five exhibitors (and one association) were on hand to answer questions and discuss their offerings with attendees.

With my graduation date being around July of 2015 I hope the FAA holds true and opens up U.S. air space by then!

I think drones and robots will be one of the main tools used in agriculture in the next decades. So great to see it is starting to happen.

Also maybe a little of topic, but does anyone know what model is in the photo??
