Yes. In the United States, as long as you abide by your local laws and those of the FAA concerning drone use, you may operate your drone for agricultural surveys. A few key points are that your drone must remain within line of sight at all times, stay under 500 feet altitude, and avoid any manned aircraft operations. If you wish to fly commercially, there are additional restrictions.
