In precision agriculture, drones have a range of uses from soil and crop field analysis to planting and pesticide spraying. Drones can be used with different imaging technologies like hyperspectral, multispectral, thermal etc. that can provide the farmers with time and site-specific information regarding crop health, fungal infections, growth bottlenecks etc.
Drones can also identify drier regions in a field and measures can then be taken to irrigate such regions with better techniques. Precision agriculture provides farmers with such concrete information that enables them to take informed decisions and utilize their resources more efficiently.
Drones for Spraying Purposes
Drones can be used to smart spray fertilizers, pesticides or various nutritions uniformly across the field. Also, the aerial mapping feature will give the farmers a bird's eye view of their fields and help them quickly identify presence of pests, crop damages and soil conditions.
