Farmers are being urged to fully understand the legal implications of drone use and seek training ahead of new 2020 regulations. New regulations published on 21 June by the Civil Aviation Authority will require farmers to become more aware of how to deploy drones on their land, although these will not come into effect until July 2020. This gives farmers and other operators the opportunity to prepare for the proposed changes to drone use. Cranfield University is offering anyone likely to use drones in agriculture the opportunity to learn how they can be used responsibly and effectively to monitor and manage crops. Full details of the 4 month on-line course starting on 18 November are here.
