US - Brett Haas, co-owner of Crop Copter, said it's not just the young farmers who are interested in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), farmers of all ages are anxious to try out the latest precision agriculture technology.

Brett Haas, co-owner and sales manager for Crop Copter, speaks to 5m at Ag Media Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. 

"UAVs help farmers assess water, pesticide and fertilizer needs and identify and target pests, diseases, weeds and stress. Within minutes, Crop Copter can help farmers make more informed decisions about using their resources," said Haas.

Headquartered in central Illinois, USA, Crop Copter is dedicated to designing, building and selling small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), specifically for agricultural use.
