The USDA just awarded Kansas State University with $300,000 to see if small drones can be used to increase wheat yields.

Drones in the study will gather data using on-board spectral and thermal imaging equipment. This data will be used to help create better algorithm that can help predict wheat growth.

The drones are an efficient and cost effective way to track the growth of the wheat can provide more data for researchers to better predict wheat yields.
