Farmers may be Exempt From Some Federal Drone Regulations
Farmers may find themselves exempt from some of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) regulations when it comes to drone usage.

On June 21, the FAA released a list of rules for using drones including the aircraft's weight being less than 55 lbs, a maximum groundspeed of 100 mph and a minimum weather visibility of 3 miles from a control station. The FAA said that, in a few months, farmers can apply for exemption waivers if they can prove the drone will be used safely.
