"The U.S. agricultural industry has become the most productive in the world by harnessing new technologies to reduce costs and improve yields," said Hawk Aerial CEO Kevin Gould.

With our high-quality sensors, we can provide advanced reporting that is especially well suited to high value, moderate acreage fruit, vegetable, and nut crops."
