Precision Agriculture

 

Our drones are equipped with digital images capabilities and sensors for flying in varied weather conditions to provide farmers with concrete information regarding crops and ensure improved health of crop in the field from planting to harvest

Overview


Agriculture is one of the most crucial elements for the sustainability of human civilization. It has been forecast that agricultural consumption would increase by 69% from 2010 to 2050 due to increase in population. The current technological trends in agricultural practices are not suitable for small land holdings that are a norm in developing countries.

As such, meeting future food demands seems like an uphill task for such countries. To stay sustainable, maximize productivity and optimize land spaces, the concepts of advanced farming techniques need to be explored and integrated into agriculture. One such concept is drones with data-gathering equipment for agriculture which is now known as precision agriculture.

How drones can be used?


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.
