I would think only dicamba on soybeans will be approved. The other trait companies don’t have enough govt connections. *



Drone or human piloted, what’s the difference? Whole lot of insecticides go on canning crops, lot of fungicides. A drone is safer for the pilot and has a bigger payload as you don’t need the cockpit.

Perhaps you are thinking herbicides specifically, and yes that is a bigger concern in these multi traited days. Typically ground application is so much cheaper for most herbicide applications, it would be difficult to make inroads into using drones for that at this time.

And sorry for the bad humor......
