Agriculture

A population growth from 7 billion to 9 billion by 2050 is predicted. In order to keep up with growing needs, agriculture will have to transform the way it produces food and become much more efficient. Furthermore, production should be kept sustainable and help to prevent environmental damage. Moreover, other barriers such as climate change make it harder to grow crops, due to an increasing number of unexpected weather events all over the world.

Drones are then the next solution in agriculture industry, precision is going to be essential.

They will help farmers to optimize their growing productivity in 3 ways:

Health evaluation: One of the latest improvements helps to check a plant’s health and spot bacteria or infections.

Crop supervision: Drones can be integrated at every stage of the crop lifecycle, from soil analysis and seed planting to choosing the right moment for harvesting. Drones can manage precise 3D maps allowing soil analysis, which can be used to plan seed planting patterns. Furthermore, the analysis provides data for irrigation and nitrogen level management.

Crop spraying: It allows to increase the efficiency of spraying any liquid product and reducing the amount of chemicals products.

Agriculture will be transformed into a high-tech industry. It is important to know that several software are available on the market. It depends what are your needs to find the best one. For example, there are software for irrigation, health plant, spraying programs… Take a lead and custom your own drone with Verydrone.
