When you first hear about a software company that helps farmers boost their crops by using data science and analysing aerial images, you might think it’s playing in a tiny field.

If so, you need to get out of the city more, because farming is a massive industry that urbanites don’t grasp the size of. It’s not only South Africa that’s covered in huge swathes of crops and orchards; about 40% of the United States is farmland, and this is the land that Cape Town’s Aerobotics has its eye-in-the- sky on.
