6 rotors plant protection UAV 16KGS agriculture sprayer

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.

Exploring agricultural drones: The future of farming is precision agriculture, mapping, and spraying

Drones can have multiple uses in agriculture, from mapping to spraying. Here is a short list of how can drones help in agriculture. Precision agriculture uses information technology to ensure that the crops and soil receive exactly what they need for optimum health and productivity. Drones are an essential tool in precision agriculture, as they allow farmers to constantly monitor crop and livestock conditions by air.

  • Mapping: With new drone models, the user only needs to draw around the area he needs to cover as drones come equipped with flight planning software allowing it to follow an automated flight path. The drone automatically takes pictures using onboard sensors and the built-in camera, and uses GPS to determine when to take each shot.
  • Cropdusting & Spraying: Drones can now carry tanks of fertilizers and pesticides in order to spray crops with far more precision than a tractor. This helps reduce costs and potential pesticide exposure to workers who would have needed to spray those crops manually.

Drone spraying and spreading becoming reality

While aviation and pesticides control authorities weigh up arguments for permitting crop treatments from drones, manufacturers are pushing ahead with developments to make drone spraying and spreading a practical reality.

After a few minutes spent on the office computer entering flight and insecticide treatment plans, a click of the ‘start’ button on the autonomous crop management programme sets things in motion. The drone garage door swings open, there’s a rapid rise in the clearly audible buzz from a hundred propellers and a swarm of spraying drones heads off to work as a co-ordinated team to tackle aphids threatening the farmer’s crops.

Rapid pace of drone development

This may be an imaginary scenario for now, but given the rapid pace of drone development – and more especially the software to control them both individually and in packs – it is certainly not inconceivable for the near future.

DJI’s Agras MG-1S is an eight-rotor craft spanning 1.47 m (5 ft), generates 5.1 kg (11 lb) of thrust per rotor and has 10-litres (2 gal) liquid capacity. It is priced at US$15,000 (€ 12,500 or € 15,000 with RTK guidance). - Photo: DJI

Crop treatments from individual drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are already widespread across Asia, while aviation and other relevant authorities elsewhere in the world are now allowing drones to be used for limited and specific trials and, in some cases, commercial operations in agriculture, horticulture, viticulture and forestry. Spraying for disease, weed and pest control, spreading microgranular pesticides and fertilisers – and even beneficial insects – as well as planting new forests are among the diverse uses now being found for drones.

Replacing back-pack sprayers

For the most part, drones make sense where they can replace labour-intensive and potentially harmful use of backpack sprayers and similar equipment, in situations where terrain and/or ground conditions rule out the use of conventional or even specialist vehicles. In China, where government subsidies encourage the use of agricultural drones, market leader DJI Innovation Technology claims that more than 10,000 trained operators are now using the Agras MG-1 series 8-rotor spraying drones first introduced in 2015.
