Almost one year ago, the team at Henry Farmer’s Co-op had their certifications and received their first drones to for spray applications.
Now, Cody Ray, precision ag sales at the co-op, shares the team has overcame the learning curve, mastered an efficient process and bobbed and weaved with the challenges of this growing season. In all, this past year Ray and the team of two pilots and two dedicated observers have applied more than 5,000 acres.
He says the need has been realized over time as it’s been more difficult to secure contracts with aerial applicators for the full time and acres needed during the high-demand fungicide application window. So Henry Farmers Co-op signed on with the team at Rantizo to help with the certification process and three DJI Agras T30 drones.
