The drones are coming! A new FAA ruling taking effect today, August 29, is receiving a lot of praise from farmers. Gibson City, Illinois, farmer Randy Aberle is among those excited to be able to operate his farm drones by use of his newly issued “pilot” certificate. From this new ruling, Matthew Brown, attorney and founder of USDroneLaw.com, says we could see an increase in the usage of technology out in the fields. From an increased use of drones to regulate crops, we could even see farmers benefiting financially.
