The drone program of the University of Louisiana Monroe is working with local farmers to improve crop yields and conserve time.

Associate Professor of Geosciences Dr. Sean Chenoweth and Associate Professor of Aviation Dr. Paul Karlowitz established this program three years ago to not only help local farmers but also to make potential clients aware of the uses of drones in their businesses.

The University of Louisiana Monroe is on a roll.

That was the message ULM President Dr. Nick Bruno shared with the crowd Thursday at Brown Auditorium.

“This is my sixth State of the University address, and it’s the most optimistic of all,” Bruno said.

Bruno’s address pointed to progress in academic programs, enrollment, hiring and budget.
