Towards 2030: Opportunities for UAS in the Farm Concept of Tomorrow
In 2030 our agriculture will be circular and more biodiverse with only minimum inputs of chemical fertilizers and crop protection. Promising initiatives are introduced as strip cropping, agroforestry and permaculture. Ecology and Agronomy are the pillars of these new concepts, made possible by new Technology. Field operations are done by a fleet of small robots. Unmanned Aerial Systems are needed for scouting crops and to provide the farmers with farm management information and advices necessary in order to manage the fleet of robots. Connectivity is of increasing importance to exchange, process and manage data.
