Northern Australia Farmers Urged to Start Small

Farmers in the North part of Australia are urged to start small before developing moving into other crop areas.  Each area has specific crop and climates that can vary widely across the country.  Any expansion has to be small with one to two years of funds to get by during down harvest years.  Small startups like these or established farms looking to diversify are good markets for UAV flights (currently legal in Australia) on a weekly to daily basis with increased meteorological modeling down to the micro level or field level to study and maximize crop production.
