The potential for drone technology when it comes to farming is slowing coming to fruition with products like the Bird-X 'ProHawk' which is an unmanned aerial vehicle that works like a digital scarecrow.

When in-flight, the Bird-X 'ProHawk' drone can emit a series of bird predator calls to help scare off invasive species from a specific area. Better yet, the physical design of the Bird-X 'ProHawk' drone is intended to mimic that of an actual bird predator to effectively work two-fold.

The Bird-X 'ProHawk' unmanned aerial vehicle can be operated either via a set GPS path or manually, depending on how farmers or landowners want to utilize it. As industries like farming become further digitized, we'll likely continue to observe more innovations like the Bird-X 'ProHawk' drone.
