When I first heard this news, I must admit being a little surprised. I couldn’t believe Sony had not gotten their technology into the agriculture game before now. However, Syngenta and Sony announced a partnership in which Sony will bring its camera technology to drones.

There is so much I could tell you about the cameras Sony is bringing to this endeavor, but I think it can be best summarized by Syngenta’s Jack Brodshaug.
Brodshaug says Sony’s technology was just a natural fit for Syngenta to partner with its agronomic expertise.
Brodshaug says many drones can take pretty pictures, the difference is making those pictures work for you.
