Drones in Ag
NSW Farmers' in conjunction with TOCAL college and Bralca are offering FULLY FUNDED Drones In Agriculture Training.
About this course
Designed by farmers for farmers with the support of NSW Farmers and delivered by an experienced drone operator and trainer, this course will teach you how to use drones to collect farm data to help you make informed decisions such as livestock monitoring, refined fertiliser, sowing, crop and weed management plans, as well as monitoring and maximising the efficiency of farm water systems.
Operating a drone is like any other precision control system - with proper planning, set up and confidence to operate safely, it can provide real on-farm benefits.
The course aims to develop knowledge and skills in:
• Safe and efficient operation of drones in an agricultural context
• Australian laws related to the use of Remote Pilot Aircraft’s (RPA) for private use
• Monitoring livestock, water and other farm infrastructure
• Collecting and processing data for use in creating a crop planting map or precision fertiliser program.
