A drone company launches ecosystem for UAV operators.

AeroVironment, a drone-making company, featured their new drone Thursday at the Farmer2Farmer conference in Omaha.

Jonah Teeter-Balin is AV’s sales and marketing manager.

“We are launching a brand-new drone ecosystem for collecting aerial imagery that farmers can use to identify issues in their operations or crops allowing them to take corrective action to improve yields and bottom line,” Teeter-Balin says.

The company has been in the drone business for over 30 years being the number source for the U.S. military. He says they have a lot in common with Farmers Business Network who is hosting the conference.

“We see our drones being able to do the same thing in terms of being able to get a birds-eye view of their fields and scout their whole farm in less time than they can do from the ground,” Teeter-Balin says.

The drone will be sold on the FBN platform.
