For Japan’s aging farmers, many of whom have lost the help of the youth that left to big cities, drones are fulfilling a much simpler need: applying fertilizer and pesticides to crops in a fraction of the time it would take elderly farmhands to do so manually.
For farmers in Tome such as Sakakibara, the average farmhand is around 67-68 years old, with only four to five years left of capable, manual labor in their future. As such, getting into the automated drone business at this juncture is not only smart, but also necessary to survive.
“It’s a matter of whether the body breaks down first, or the tractor,” said Sakakibara.
Fortunately, thanks to the relatively inexpensive price point of drones and their correlated software for industries such as agriculture, people in desperate need to maximize their businesses while they still can are benefitting hugely from the contemporary UAV landscape. In Japan, that means farmers in their late 60s don’t have to sell their farms. It means they can still thrive and take advantage of all the modern technologies we’ve collectively contributed to.
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. cost is USD 6K
