As climates change and traditional wine growing environments heat up, vineyards are looking at ways to protect against a loss of quality and income in their growing.
Californian grape growing Ryan Kunde has been making use of drone aircraft in the fight against climate change.
He analyzes aerial images from his fleet of drones as part of a broader “precision farming” movement to determine where he can reduce the amount of fertilizer, water or energy that is used to grow grapes. This, Kunde argues, will lower greenhouse gas emissions and help “slow the rate of climate change.”
