And it appears there is a lot of interest in the technology. As of today, the majority of those who responded to the survey said they were strongly interested in purchasing a UAV for their farm.

Ariens, the company you may recognize for its lawn, turf and snow management tools, has made a major statement with the launch of a new work vehicle under its Gravely brand.

And agriculture is one of their target markets.
