DJI’s agriculture drone takes to the air down on the farm | Gizmag
Drones are starting to emerge as highly suitable tools for farming. This is of course not lost on the world’s biggest drone maker DJI, who has just a launched a machine for farmers that can be programmed to cover acres of farmland in pesticides every hour.
John Payne’s insight:
Not fond of pesticides? At least this machine will operate closer to the ground and produce less turbulence than conventional spray-planes, meaning less of the chemicals will drift onto adjacent fields. And, with a smaller spray area, it will be able to apply the chemicals where they are most needed, resulting is lower net use.
