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.
