  • New geo-technology measures and assesses the condition of fruit orchards for the development of care recommendations
  • Rüdiger Recknagel, speaking for the Foundation: “We are bringing new technologies and environmental protection together” 

Starting today, individual drones will fly at regular intervals over the mixed orchards of the district of Bad Schönborn. Their job is to act as nature conservationists. The drones are controlled by geographers of Heidelberg University of Education. They then evaluate the images scientifically using innovative geo-technology in order to develop recommendations for the care of the orchards. This ensures the long-term diversity of the fruit population of the Baden-Württemberg district and protects the habitat of native animals.
