ABC Story on Technology in Farming in Australia

The Australia Broadcasting Company has a good 12min piece on technology in farming.  The first section is about drone startup company, Aerial Vision Australia that uses ortho imagery to get 3D models of the farm field for planning.  Other segments focus on time saving and other farm management apps for your phone or tablet through Farmware.  It is a good story that you do not hear much of in the United States until the FAA green-lights the entire country for drone use, hopefully by September 2015.  Other farm techology can be used right away.  Farming is not what it used to be, it will continue to use more and more technology in the future.
