Abstract
The Interest in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) has grown around the world and several efforts are underway to integrate UAV operations routinely and safely into remote sensing applications, specially applied in precision agriculture. Reviewing the use of UAV in agriculture it shows limitations and opportunities. So the challenges of UAV platforms for remote sensing and precision agriculture were identified during a real case studied at a citrus area to monitor the HLB (Huanglongbing) infestation. Recommended actions for moving forward were identified and showed that is possible to use UAVs for detection of crop diseases with high precision.
