Drone technology for farmers
DRONE (Dynamic Remote Operator navigation Equipment) is one of the most important inventions of 21st century. Drones are used in many areas. While they originated mostly in military applications, their use is expanding to commercial, scientific, recreational, agricultural, and other applications, such as policing, peacekeeping, and surveillance, aerial photography, agriculture, drone racing etc. Let’s talk about about farmers. Agricultural drones are applied to farming in order to help increase crop production and monitor growth. Through the use of advanced sensors and digital imaging capabilities, farmers are able to use these drones to help them gather a richer picture of their fields.
Drone help farmers in the following areas:-
- The DRONE has sensors to detect the harmful pests in crops by which farmers can make an early treatment of their crops.
- It can be used for spraying pesticides on crops so that farmers will be away from the adverse effect of chemical pesticides and weedicides.
- It can help farmers to detect the water lever in the crop field while irrigating the crop.
So I think drones in agriculture may bring some good changes in crop production and in growth of Indian economy, and can be used for welfare of farmers.
