Ag drones: Drones soon will be buzzing busily over Oregon fields and forests

Michael Wing heads OSU’s Aerial Information Systems Laboratory, which plans to test the HoneyComb AgDrone for forestry and agricultural purposes later this year through a grant from Oregon BEST, a nonprofit that supports clean technology innovation. The team recently received FAA approval to use the AgDrone, and Wing said the team plans to do flights for grass seed analysis in July.
