The use of drones in agriculture is growing at a fast rate and each month, we hear about new use cases and research of the various applications.
Taking advantage of a large GIS community gathering for FOSS4G in Dar es Salaam at the end of August, CGIAR Consortium for Spatial Information, IFPRI, WeRobotics and Tanzania Flying Labs are organizing a “Drones for Agriculture” Knowledge Sharing Day in Dar es Salaam on Friday, August 24, 2018, from 9 am to 5 pm.
The goal of the day is to bring together a diverse crowd who is already working with drones in agriculture or is planning to use drones in agriculture to share their knowledge, contribute with their own experiences and learn from others and their experiences.
The program of the day will be built around following 3 main sessions and will also include hard- and software presentations:
- Current use cases & opportunities
- Challenges & Trade-offs between drone and satellite data for agriculture
- Needs to further drone usage in agriculture
Participation is free of charge, though limited to a maximum of 50 participants on site, with the possibility to join remotely.
