High Tech Farming now includes Drones, GPS, ROBOTS and more, oh my!

Wow, just 100 years ago farming in the U.S. went from animal power…to  combustion engines!

However, these past 20 years global positioning system (GPS), electronic sensors and other new tools see farming well ensconced in technology.

What’s next?

“Gimball” excels at this and just won the ‘drones for good award.’

Why do you think this would be an asset – an ideas?
