The UF Geomatics program at the Fort Lauderdale Research & Education Center received a UF/IFAS Equipment & Infrastructure Award for the purchase of a VTOL Multirotor/Fixed Wing drone with imaging and positioning sensors.

The equipment will be used to expand interdisciplinary projects between Agronomy, Entomology and Nematology, and Environmental Horticulture programs at FLREC.

Thank you to the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, the Senior Vice President for Agriculture and Natural Resources, and UF’S Vice President for Research for financial support of this funding opportunity!

Lastly, for those interested in collaborating on UAS mapping projects in agriculture and natural resources, we encourage you to reach out to Adam to initiate those conversations.
