“Drones have become an almost quintessential aspect in the modern technology and have proven to be the best resources for agricultural experts especially when it comes to understanding, analyzing, and monitoring some key agricultural issues. At ICBA, we see this technology as a great resource to analyze the impact of climate variability on water resources, crop production, and soil.” Dr. Elouafi also went on to say that the technology would help their scientists save time and resources in understanding the severity of agricultural issues and provide more timely solutions.”
FEDS is also very excited about the partnership. In fact, according to Rabih Bou Rashid, Managing Director at Falcon Eye Drones, “It is not a secret how we established ourselves as one of the top drone service providers. We aim to deliver exceptional customer service and have developed some world class applications to help us do so.
