A fund-raising campaign has been launched to further develop an agricultural app which automates crop scouting through a drone-controlling mobile app.

Drone Ag has started a £250,000 crowdfunding appeal to enhance its sophisticated ‘Skippy Scout’ software.

Skippy Scout is designed to make farmers’ lives easier by saving time, increasing efficiency and providing accurate results.

Drone AG has partnered with Heliguy to offer a training course to help users learn to develop their drone agricultural skills.

Jack Wrangham, founder and director of Drone AG, said: “We truly believe that Skippy Scout can bring huge improvements to efficiency in agriculture.”

Northumberland-based Drone Ag Limited is a team of farmers, agronomists, drone pilots and software engineers providing drone-training courses and easy-to-use software solutions to help make farming more efficient.
