Greg Crutsinger is excited to announce two 1-day workshops on agricultural mapping with drones, July 16th & 17th at the Intermountain Research and Extension Center (IREC) in Tulelake, California.
Workshops will consist of two sessions (beginner and intermediate) for agricultural mapping. You can attend either or both, depending on your needs. The target audience includes growers, agronomists, crop consultants, students/researchers, and drone service providers who are interested in the data side of agriculture. These workshops will walk you through from start to finish of building your drone program for the growing season.
