Drones have become useful and affordable research tools that show great promise for a variety of precision agriculture applications due to the unique aerial perspective they can provide. When used to create imagery of potato trials, commercially available “ready to fly” drones can provide detailed images of the development of each plot over the growing season, building up a historical record of each trial. This information complements existing ground based assessment, enhancing the details recorded for each plot on the ground, as both visual information and canopy height data can be captured when processed using specialist software.
