Using Drone Technology in Farming
Drones are used in a variety of applications, including those related to agriculture, which are called Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAVs. Our City Agriculturist quoted that drone technology can help a lot in agricultural work now that the so-called “smart farm” is gradually being embraced. According to him, smart farming is a method of farming that uses modern information and communications technology or ICT to increase production and improve the quality of farm produce. He further explained that drones are commonly used to spray fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides to save costs for farmers and make their work in the fields easier likewise that up to 90% in water and 30% to 40% in pesticides can be saved using this technology which has a big help to our “Mammangi” Farmers.
