A New Perspective on Bulb Planting

Taken earlier this year (slightly belated in the posting), this video gives a great perspective on planting our daffodil bulbs. Typically this takes place during August once the land has been prepared following the pea and wheat harvests. These bulbs will be in the ground for up to three years with the flowers cropped each spring.

The video was taken by Sam Spridgen, one of the team here at Jack Buck Farms, on his new DJI Phantom Quadcopter. As well as providing us with some fantastic footage of the farm in action, it has also demonstrated the possibilities this type of technology could enable from crop inspection to bird scaring! Always keen to be at the forefront of agricultural technology we'll certainly be keeping an eye on this emerging technology.
