New Course – Certificate II in Rural Operations AHC21216 – Drones

In agriculture, there’s always a new trick or trade to learn or new technology or machinery to try. These days, these tricks often come attached to small flying aircraft – a drone, a fact that they are continuing to grow and there seems to be a great presence of drones in agriculture. Successful drone use might lead to better yields in the future, with an emphasis on the future.

Drones are a cheaper alternative  for aerial photography, with regular and infrared cameras, combined with programs that are put together and analyze the photos, to give farmers information that was previously too costly or unattainable. Drones can do more for farming than just photographing crops. These robots are not only being used to manage water, they can survey crops and precisely dispense chemicals over your agricultural landscape.

When it comes to livestock control drones will be able to help farmers monitor and gather information of the location, health and conditions of their livestock as tracking and inspecting livestock on large agricultural grounds can be a challenging and time consuming task at times. The advantage of this is it enables them to cover very large areas that doesn’t scare or harm their livestock.

Here are some of the units that Ag Training will be covering in our NEW program.

  • AHCBIO201 INSPECT AND CLEAN MACHINERY FOR PLANT, ANIMAL AND SOIL MATERIAL
