LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) -- A flight demonstration of various unmanned aircraft systems used to improve the care of crops, livestock and pastures is scheduled for next week in central Kansas.

Kansas State University is hosting the event Tuesday in Lindsborg, where U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran will be on hand to discuss economic growth potential of unmanned aircraft systems in the state.

The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International predicted in a study released in March that Kansas will be among the top 10 states to see significant economic growth once drones are integrated into the national airspace system in 2015.

The association's president and CEO, Michael Toscano, also will be at Tuesday's demonstration.
