April-June 2019: Reed Ag Solutions successfully plans and gathers the first drone imagery of hemp fields ever in Caswell County, NC and Pittsylvania County, VA.

Between April and June 2019, Reed Ag Solutions successfully flew and gathered drone imagery for agronomic analysis, focusing on 10 acres of the grower’s network and USAL’s 20 acre research field. This successful operation included multiple flights while educating actual farmers on the farm mapping drone system. Use of the Matrice 100 drone UAS with advanced mapping sensors was piloted by our Part 107 licensed lead pilot Jim Reed.
