Drone spraying pesticides has become more and more popular, which is cheaper and more efficient than traditional manual spraying. However, But sowing and fertilizing, most small farmers still work in the traditional way.

One is a complete drone with spraying and spreading functions, such as DJI and XAG. Another is spraying drone, which can be upgraded to an all-round agricultural drone by a detachable spreader. For example, the V2.0 granule spreader is integrated structure and tool-free,easy for pilots to modify and adapt to all open source flight controllers. For pilots or agricultural service teams, the cost of investment and replacement is lower.It can sow rice, wheat, soybean, cotton, etc. evenly and efficiently at 360°, or fertilize.


With the development of technology, drones are becoming more powerful and easier to assemble and operate. This is conducive to the majority of farmers to easily farm, reduce costs and increase income.

As an effective measure to reduce agricultural production costs and solve labor shortage,UAV precision spreading and fertilization technology has been promoted by various countries.


Drones improve agricultural planting efficiency

Nowadays, "drone direct planting" technology has been vigorously promoted in South Korea as an alternative measure to cope with the shortage of rural labor. The South Korean government plans to invest 15 billion won by 2025 to expand the direct seeding area to 10% of the total rice planting area (13,000 hectares). Drone spreading can precise and quantitative sowing, which can help farmers effectively save 30% of seed per hectare. Efficient and precise operation reduce labor costs by 90% and operating costs by 85%.


Drones help the development of agricultural intelligence in Southeast Asia

Southeast Asian countries are increasingly shifting from traditional to modern agriculture. Currently, 2,000-3,000 agricultural drones are flying in the fields in Thailand, only cover 20% of the farmland area, 90% of the drones are used for spraying pesticides , and the drone spreading market is growing steadily.More and more agricultural drones are flying into farmland to help farmers increase production and income.




The intelligentization and dataization of agricultural machinery is a trend, and the low-cost and high-efficiency aerial work tools of drones will be adopted by more and more farms.

Sustained high agricultural production is an important factor for social stability and development. Are drones worth investing in agricultural production? Let’s take a look at the research from india.
The team found manual spraying used more insecticides and water than drone-enabled spraying. Farmers used one liter of insecticide mixed with 160 liters of water for an acre of jasmine fields. Meanwhile, drone spray reduced the consumption to 750 ml of insecticide with 40 liters of water. Roughly, Drones can reduce chemical use by 10-30%, spraying an acre field in just 15 minutes. Combining farm chemical, water and labor costs, drone spraying can save $8-10 per hectare.

As an important equipment for agricultural production upgrading, intelligent agricultural drones will become more and more cost-effective, flying in the fields to increase farmers' production and income, and protect global food security.
