"Don't you think to sell the sprayer kit alone for those who prefer to use their own design, ej a multicopter, etc? Congrats nice design, good luck"

"Closest we have seen is the gas gun and splatter gun label additions for some herbicides. This has set the precedent for low volume application but we still have a larger battle with getting this approved for aerial application. The companies may…"

Has anyone heard of the major spraying UAS manufacturers approaching the EPA about minimum application volumes?

In order for small UAS systems to be productive in the US, the current minimum total spray volumes per acre stated on the various chemical labels will have to be changed. Have any manufacturer's approached the Environmental Protection Agency about reducing these stated minimums?My estimation is that it will have to be reduced from 2, 3, 5, and 10 gallons per acre total volume down to mere ounces per acre, most likely straight chemical sprayed ultra low volume "ULV".See More

George replied to Tamas's discussion NDVI survey effect on financials in the group Agricultural UAVs
"From the information I have gathered over the years from customers about savings from traditional scouting and existing use of infrared imagery taken from aircraft, the thoughts are that it is too variable to pin down an exact average. Thoughts…"

"What we have been doing is invasive woody weed control so not for deforestation. Many woody weeds such as Blackberry Lantana and Prickly Acacia have the ability to strangle local habitat to the environments detriment."
