Crop Surveying Drones
There were times when farmers used to look into the sky looking for the signs of rain but now agriculture drones are used widely in farming which has reduced most of the human efforts.
The ability of drones to hover over the fields of maize, rice, potato etc with sensory devices tells farmers about the condition of the crop without going into fields and helps them to increase the crop yields.
For example, when a plant goes into stress due to lack of fertilizers or water or because of being attacked by the pests, it takes time for a farmer to detect these problems but agriculture drones can detect these problems easily by using their infrared sensors.
There are several benefits of using drones in agriculture
Increases crop yields:
Ag drones help farmers to detect the problems, gives information about the health of the crop, and other useful information. All of these help farmers to take proper measures and overall crop yield increases.
Return on Investment:
By investing some money in buying agriculture drones, ROI on the purchase can be met quickly as they help farmers by reducing a lot of efforts of going into fields and gather all the data manually. It also helps in crop management.
Using drones for crop surveying really saves a lot of time as keeping an eye on the crops is really time-consuming and tiring.
Crop Health Imaging:
Agriculture drones give information about the health of the crop from time to time which is really helpful.
Ease of Use:
Using drones if really not a big deal. It can be a complex task in the beginning but with the passage of time, it becomes really handy.
A drone may look like a toy but it really is a helpful tool for the farmers which tells a lot about the crop.
