Rice sheath blight is an important rice disease that is common worldwide.

one, can infect rice sheaths and leaves to cause dead spots, also infect the neck,Stems and leaves, reducing the seed setting rate of rice, increasing the rate of grain, grain weight Declining, seriously affecting the yield and quality of rice, the field of disease is generally reduced Production is 10% to 30%, and the yield loss can reach 50% in severe cases [1-2]. in recent years Come, due to the large-scale planting of susceptible varieties, the increase in the amount of nitrogen fertilizer Addition and changes in global climatic conditions, rice sheath blight Increased year by year, especially in southern Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Jiangxi, etc. Ground, rice sheath blight has been ranked first in the three major diseases of rice. Head Before, the most effective and widespread method for controlling rice sheath blight is still to make Use chemicals.

The long-term and large-scale use of chemical pesticides has caused high

Pay attention to it. At present, pesticide reduction and efficiency have become the national development war slightly. In theory, there are three ways to reduce pesticides: one is non-chemical defense. Treatment technology, mainly including biological control technology, sexual attractant technology and cultivation Prevention and control technology; second, the development of high-efficiency, low-toxic, low-residue pesticides; It is the precise application technology of pesticides, and the ultra-low volume spray method is a pesticide. Trends in the use of technology, while drones are ultra-low-capacity sprays The most ideal agricultural aircraft machinery for technical implementation. Plant protection The advantage of the combination of machine and ultra-low volume spray is that the amount of pesticide is small, anti- The treatment effect is good and the pollution to the environment is light. In order to explore unmanned plant protection aircraft The effect of pesticide application on rice sheath blight, we are in 2016, 2017 Plant protection drones were super low in Yujiang County and Nanchang County, Jiangxi Province.

3 Discussion

UAV ultra-low volume spray technology is currently the most advanced pesticide use technology. Ultra-low-volume spray can make the droplets reach 80-120m or even finer, save water and save time and labor when spraying; in the case of rice pest control, the traditional spray method requires a liquid volume of 225-450 kg/ Hm. With ultra-low volume spray, the required amount of liquid is only 4.5-7.5 IMhm. Therefore, the ultra-low-capacity spray technology of plant protection drone has the advantages of high spraying efficiency, low time consumption, less dosage, good application quality, etc. It is the development direction of the specialization and prevention of crop diseases and insect pests. In recent years, China has also reported relevant research on the application of ultra-low-capacity spray technology for drones to control crop diseases and insect pests. Ma Shufang carried out a field effect test on the application of plant protection drones to spray different agents to control wheat scab. The results showed that the application of pesticides by plant protection drones had a good control effect on wheat scab and greatly improved the control efficiency. . Wu Tianchang  carried out the application of plant protection drone to control the reduction of rice planthoppers. The test results show that spraying 10% of the ethathrin suspending agent with multi-rotor drone can achieve ideally only 80% of the conventional dosage. Control effect. The results of this study showed that under the conditions of the same drug and the same dose, the effects of two test sites on the control of rice sheath blight were positively correlated with the amount of liquid sprayed, and the amount of liquid used was 15.00 L/ Hm has the best control effect. At the Taihe test site, under the condition of applying 420 g/hm of 25% epoxiconazole suspending agent, the spraying of different liquid amount of plant protection drone has better control effect on rice sheath blight, and the amount of liquid used in it Under the condition of 11.25 L/hm, it is equivalent to the effect of artificial electric spray. The control effect of the dosage of l5.00 lMhm is significantly higher than that of artificial electric spray. However, in the field investigation on the 10th day after the second application of the Taihe test site, it was found that a large number of fresh disease spots with low grades appeared in the rice plants in the plots of rice sheath blight by the plant-protected drone ultra-low-capacity spraying technology. This is not the case in a cell controlled by artificial electric spray. The reason may be related to the fact that the liquid medicine settled to the base of the rice plant during the spraying process of the plant protection drone, which is related to the weakening effect of reinfection in the late stage of rice sheath blight. At the test site in Nanchang County, the control effect of the ultra-low-capacity sprayed liquid through the plant protection drone was not satisfactory, and the maximum effective liquid volume (15.00 L/hm) was 69.44%, which was also significantly lower than the artificial The effect of electric spray is 86.22%. This may be related to the large wind force on the day of spraying. The drone has a chemical liquid drift during the spraying of the liquid, and the liquid is difficult to deposit and distribute to the base of the rice stem, thereby affecting the control effect. In recent years, the application of plant protection drones in the prevention and control of crop diseases and insect pests has become more and more extensive, but some problems have also appeared in the process of its promotion and application, thus affecting the prevention and control effects.

We have found that the use of plant protection drone ultra-low-capacity application to control rice sheath blight has the advantage of high control efficiency. However, due to the low capacity of the applied liquid, in order to ensure the control effect, it is recommended to add anti-flying additives to the pesticide to prevent it. The liquid moves, enhancing adsorption and osmosis. In the future, it is necessary to further carry out field trials of multiple crops for many years, continuously summarize the experience of field trials, and improve management methods in preparation for evaluating the control effect of plant protection drone ultra-low-capacity spraying technology on crop pests and diseases, and finally promote the technology. Popularization and application in crop pest control.
