Whether it is the early detection of varying vigor on wine farms, thrips on citrus farms or anything in between, farmers can mitigate damage to their crop earlier than they would have with just the naked eye.”

Nothing happens in Aerobotics unless it benefits the farmer. We believe this is why we have seen such rapid growth over the last five months and why we expect this growth to continue.”
