In this review paper, practical experiences of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in precision agriculture and remote sensing are explored. In two case studies, their use is compared with traditional aircraft or satellite based platforms and UAV provide better results in both cases and at lower cost. Based on this, other potential local uses of UAVs are highlighted that may help expedite their use locally and attract wide research, investment and better policy regulation for their application.
