Short summary
This article investigates how new digital technologies are established in agriculture. It draws upon empirical data from a qualitative case study with a Swiss based but internationally operating start-up that has recently obtained the first authorisation to spray crop protection products on vineyards with their home-made drone. The authors show that there has been a joint-effort between the private company and federal institutions to experiment, improve and regulate the functioning of the drone.
