Precision Ag event at Jamestown looks at drones, Google Glass, etc.

Will Google Glass — a smartphone on your face — become common for crop consultants in five years? Will unmanned aircraft systems like those below — drones — take a significant role in agriculture in the future? Scientists and others seem to think so. We’ll hear more about that today at the Precision Ag Action Summit today in Jamestown, N.D. Look for other details on and in the Jan. 27 issue of Agweek for stories about what precision agriculture experts, industry insiders ¬†and academics have to say about the developing technologies. The event at the North Dakota Farmers Union in Jamestown drew a crowd that included plenty of younger faces.
