Students from Virginia Tech University shared how they've been learning about and developing drones for use in agriculture. The demonstration took place at Chesapeake Farms as part of the Environmental Respect Awards program presented by DuPont and hosted by AgriBusiness Global and CropLife® magazines.

The Environmental Respect Awards program is for retail farm supply businesses who store, handle, sell, and/or apply crop nutrient and crop protection products. Not eligible are retail outlets owned by crop protection companies with an internal research & development organization. Learn more about the Environmental Respect Awards program.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 ERA program.
