    Great story about farmbots. The name of the game is more crops while using less pesticides, fuel and water. My grandfather could harvest 40 bushels of corn a day by hand. Now the harvest is over 3,000 bushels per hour.
    Researchers are now exploring the use of Drone aircraft in agricultural applications. Love the farm tech. Great job.
