Chinese farmers use seed drone to spreading vegetable seeds

November and December is the busy season for planting and farming in autumn and winter. In Jinshi Town, Xiangxiang City, China, seed drone have been used for the first time in large-scale vegetable seed spreading.

Over farmland in Longtan Village, Jinshi Town, a six-wing seed drone is sowing vegetable seeds under the control of a farmer. This drone can carry 20 kg of seeds. After the drone receives the sowing signal from the ground operator, the discharger at the bottom of the storage box opens, and the vegetable seeds are evenly sowed into the farmland from the air.

Unmanned aerial vehicles can perform precise seeding according to the area of the field. The seeding line has no missed seeding and no repetition. It can plant 4-5 acres of farmland in one hour, and the seeding efficiency is 4 times that of traditional seeding methods. All 500 acres can be planted in about 10 days.

This kind of seed drone can not only sow rapeseed, grass seed, vegetable seed and other small particle seeds, but also has multiple functions such as spraying potion and powder, and can replace a variety of agricultural machinery and tools.

What are the main uses for a spreader drone?

Seed Spreading

Seed spreading, or spreading fertilizer with a drone allows a user to reach places that traditionally would be hard to access, or to simply spread seeds much faster. Our seed spreader drones can spread up to 40x faster than manual spreading, and allow users to spread seeds quickly and efficiently on hills, wetlands, and other places that heavy machinery would have a hard time reaching.

Spreading Moss Killer

Spreading moss killer with a drone is an efficient way to spread moss killer on roofs and hard to reach places. Several companies are already using our drones to spread moss killer on roofs, saving substantial time compared to having to climb up ladders to reach roofs and other places were moss tends to grow. Not to mention the substantially reduced risk of a safety incident such as someone falling from a roof while climbing up.

Spreading Seeds In Wetlands

Spreading seeds in wetlands with a drone is a quick way to do a task that can traditionally be very difficult. The nature of wetlands makes them hard to access with traditional heavy machinery, without disrupting the ecosystem. Using a seed spreader drone allows the operator to plant seeds much more efficiently and with much less disruption than other equipment.

Spreading Ice Melter

Spreading ice melter with a drone is a quick and effective way to cover a large amount of ground with ice melter in a relatively short period of time. A seed spreader drone can spread ice melter up to 40x faster than manually spreading ice melter by hand. Just remember when buying one to ensure that it has a winter operation package installed since our drones without these modifications are generally not meant to be used in winter conditions.

Spreading Lime

Spreading lime with a drone is a quick way to spread lime over large distances, or in hard to reach places much faster than doing it manually.

Spreading Corn

Spreading corn with a drone for fertilizer, or to attract animals is a quick and effective way to cover large distances quickly. A drone can also fly around areas that may be hard for vehicles or larger equipment to access. With our optional “professional package”, we have sense and avoid sensors built into our seed spreaders, allowing you to fly in smaller spaces without crashing the drone.

Spreading Fish Feed

Spreading fish feed with a drone is a very effective way to cover large surface area evenly with fish food. With a spreader drone, you can spread the fish food quickly and evenly over a large area of water. Using a drone means you can complete the whole operation from the lakeside without having to send any boats or people into the water to complete the feeding.

Spreading Aggregate

Spreading aggregate with a drone is a quick way to spread gravel, and other materials over large distances, or in hard to reach places much faster than doing is manually.
