Increasingly regulation, combined with bad press for drones, is causing a mild decline in recreational drone sales so DJI of China is directing more attention to promoting dronres for agriculture.

The Financial Times is reporting that DJI doubled sales of agricultural drones last year and will be spending more in 2019 to market to and educate farmers on their use.

DJI dominates the global drone business with a market share somewhere above 70% according to industry figures.

Agricultural uses where DJI drones are being deployed include Crop Consulting, Irrigation Management, Crop Inspection, and Spraying.

The Agras MG-1S integrates a number of cutting-edge DJI technologies, including the new A3 Flight Controller, and a Radar Sensing System that provides additional reliability duringflight. The spraying system and flow sensor ensure accurate operations. When used withthe MG Intelligent Operation Planning System and the dji agriculture Management Platform,a user can plan operations, manage flights in real-time, and closely monitor aircraft operatingstatus. The dji mg 1 is a high performance aircraft capable of offering comprehensive solutionsfor agricultural care.

With intelligent software and AI, the Agras series of drones can complete complex spraying tasks faster, and less expensively, than more expensive traditional farming equipement.

DJI has put together multiple videos showcasing the Agras drones ability to identify the subject area and self-program a spraying route and pattern for optimal spray delivery.

In addition to faster, more cost effective delivery, using remotely piloted drones that fly pre-programmed patterns automatically also provides health risk improvement opportunities.  Equipment operators using traditional spraying equipment would normally be working right in the field being sprayed. posing potential current and future health risks.

With airborned delivery of ag-chemcial products, farmers no longer have to be concerned about crop destruction caused by operating traditional tractor driven sprayers.

Intelligent Agriculture is the trend of all over the world. And the intelligent drone act as a important role in this world plan.

Agriculture spraying drone can replace the traditional pesticide sprayer and it's speed is 40times of the traditional sprayer. It will save 90% water and 30%-40% pesticide. Small droplet diameter make the pesticide more well-distribute and improve the effect. At the same time, it will make the people faraway from the pesticide and reduce the pesticide remain of the crop.
