Why would you want to do that?
  1. The view from above is always more revealing
  2. Digital geo referenced images
  3. Acres of varying levels of vigour can be calculated from the image
  4. Infrared and coloured images
  5. Great learning opportunity to see how soil features such as slope, texture, drainage, soybean straw dispersal has impacted on  population, tiller counts and overall plant health in each area
