How cloud technology can help farmers in Scotland
The farming industry increasingly relies on technology to improve its efficiency and productivity. Cloud services have been approved to be a successful tool for small businesses that can be accessed via the internet and relieves them from a range of technical hassles when using their own servers.

So how could cloud-based technology be applied to the farming industry?

Drones in the cloud
The cloud-based platform Flyver Eye, based in Bulgaria, uses drones to monitor and live-stream large crop areas, that are streamed wirelessly to a cloud. Once stored in the cloud, the video can be accessed easily on mobile phones or other devices, which gives farmers a quick overview over the land and crop conditions. A successful innovation for farmers to save time and to work more efficiently.
