New on our blog: Levelling up — first glimpse of a new GPS vs. UAV elevation survey
When it comes to planning drainage activities on farms that grow crops such as rice, elevation survey data—and its accuracy—is a big deal.

That’s why Ryan Moore, the crop services manager at Greenway Equipment, Inc., embarked on a new elevation survey study at Senter Farms in Osceola, Arkansas. His aim: to assess how RTK-enabled survey drone (or UAV) technology might replace, or complement, the use of ground-based GPS devices when mapping the terrain of a rice farm.
