    The fancy drone displays that we often see take a huge amount of programming time. A large number of drones out spraying would also take a large amount of effort spent programming for doing each location to be treated.

    I rather imagine that a field would be sprayed by an operator manually flying the perimeter and then letting the device & programming to fill in the middle. Time would need to be spent marking areas to be excluded, also. You couldn't do the programming off the map, either. Every year, every field would be a little bit different. Misapplications are very expensive. If you think labor is expensive, try buying some of these herbicides. I have one in my shop right now that costs around $100 per ounce.

    Given that the contraption will require several battery changes per hour, along with chemical tank refills, I see just one man being kept pretty busy with one drone.

    I have a drone. It's fun, but very time consuming to operate just one. I don't see farmers putting the resources into massive drone attacks that might be done at say...The Olympics, as we saw done in China.

    Sadly, no. I suck at syncopation, I could never keep rhythm, and not too good on timing, either.
    Does it count that I have excellent relative pitch? I can't stand these talent shows where everybody gets on stage and torments us with their lousy yodeling.

    Do NOT hit the play button if you like good music.
