Tifton -- Some South Georgia researchers hope to soon take local farmers into the wireless generation. Researchers hope farmers will one day use remote cameras and laptop cameras to run their operations.

"The big advantage will be that farmers will be able to operate their farms remotely as they become more complex ," says Dr. Stuart Pocknee of UGA.

"The agriculture wireless technology is in its infancy  but it will give farmers the power to control things like irrigation," says Paul McInnish of Cirronet a wireless technology company.

UGA says its working with local farmers in Tifton to run test trials of the new wireless technology.
