NASS Ag Resources Survey and American Robotics FAA Approval
**Last month, the USDA’s National Ag Statistics Service began gathering information about farm economics and production practices from farmers and ranchers across the South, in the third and final phase of the 2020 Ag Resource Management Survey.
Anthony Prillaman, Director of the NASS Southern Regional Field Office, tells www.morningagclips.com ARMS is the only survey that measures the current financial well-being of Southern producers and their households.
NASS will reach out to nearly 4,000 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, between January and March.
**American Robotics, a leading developer of fully-automated commercial drone systems, has become the first company approved by the FAA to operate automated drones without human operators on-site.
American Robotics CEO, Reese Mozer tells www.agrimarketing.com we can now safely begin operating our automated Scout platform for the benefit of many industries, including agriculture.
The real-time analytics from Scout Systems empowers farmers, agronomists, and others to accurately track the health and status of their operations, at levels not previously possible.
