After being grounded by lack of federal rules, agricultural use of drones set to take off
Waterloo Region Record
Mike Geske wants a drone. Watching a flying demonstration on Maryland's Eastern Shore, the Missouri farmer envisions using an unmanned aerial vehicle to monitor the irrigation pipes on his farm — a job he now pays three men to do. "The savings on labour and fuel would just be phenomenal," Geske says, watching as a small white drone hovers over a nearby corn field and transmits detailed pictures of the growing stalks to an iPad.

2 'kids' from McGill
Farm Industry News
I've always heard of McGill University, but not until last year did I get a chance to see it. Okay, so maybe it was just a drive-by in the cab on my way to the 2014 ASABE International conference held in Montreal. But even so. The university consistently ranks among the Top 50 best global universities, along the likes of Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, UC Berkeley and other big names.

John Deere introduces 900 Series round balers
Grainews
For producers looking for a round baler that can handle both silage and dry forage hay, John Deere recently introduced its new 900 Series. These balers create a denser bale than the brand's other models by using pre-cutter knives. Buyers can choose either a 13 or 25 blade pre-cutter to pre-process the hay flowing into the bale chamber. The resulting shorter stems allow more hay to pack into each bale, making later processing of the feed easier or unnecessary.

Cutting-edge technology makes light work of heavy grass crops
The Press and Journal
Self-propelled forage harvesters are now the weapon of choice for farmers and contractors with large areas of crop to cut and ensile in a short time. They may be expensive compared to their trailed counterparts but they have that indispensable ingredient — loads of grunt. It takes real horsepower to chop a heavy crop of grass or whole crop cereals and that is especially so for the increasing number of operators harvesting hybrid rye, grass or maize for biogas production.

GPS technology offers alternative to paddock fences
Irish Independent
The emergence of low-cost global positioning satellite (GPS) technology is set to eliminate the need for paddock fencing, broaden the scope of grass measuring devices, and help farmers save more calves at birth if exhibits at the Moorepark'15 open day were anything to go by. Scientists are on the cusp of commercializing the same technology that has been used in dog collars to keep dogs from roaming outside their owner's property.

Crop science and technology continues to grow
Farm Industry News
Recently, I got the chance to attend a couple sessions at a unique event BASF held in Chicago as part of its celebration of the company's 150th birthday. There, they gathered scientists from around the country, and the world, to discuss research and opportunities for the future. I'll be detailing some of the discussions I heard, but I wanted to start this conversation with an interesting concept — genome editing.
