Video: Top 5 Agricultural Drones - Amazing Modern AgricultureAn agricultural drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle used in agriculture operations mostly in yield optimization and in monitoring crop growth and crop production. The aerial view provided by a drone can assists in the information of crop growth stages, crop health and soil variations in real time helping in any mitigation if required. Multi-spectral sensors can collect image in near-infrared as well as in visible spectrum of the electromagnetic spectrum.
There is a large capacity for growth in the area of agricultural drones. With technology constantly improving, imaging of the crops will need to improve as well. With the data that drones record from the crops the farmers are able to analyze their crops and make educated decisions on how to proceed given the accurate crop information. Software programs for analyzing and correcting crop production have the potential to grow in this market. Farmers will fly a drone over their crops, accurately identify an issue in a specific area, and take the necessary actions to correct the problem.This gives the farmer time to focus on the overall task of production instead of spending time surveying their crops. Additional uses include keeping track of livestock, surveying fences, and monitoring for plant pathogens.
