Drone workshops set for agricultural professionals in Michigan

Thanks to a grant from Michigan State University AgBioResearchRS&GIS and the Bruno Basso Lab, a series of free drone workshops will be offered in 2019 for agricultural professionals across Michigan. Each of the 1.5 to two-day workshops will target a specific commodity group including grapes, nursery stock and row crops.

Join Robert Goodwin, MSU senior geospatial analyst, on Nov. 4 and 5 at the Northwest Michigan Horticulture Research Center in Traverse City, Michigan, to receive hands-on instruction in drone operation, processing and analysis tailored for vineyards. A similar workshop will be held in East Lansing, Michigan, on Nov. 7 and 8, which will focus on drone use in nurseries and landscaping. The workshop dates tailored for row crops have yet to be determined.
