Generally speaking, agriculture UAV can be divided into crop dusters sprayers, helicopters and multi-rotor UAV crop dusters. Some of helicopter models boast a gas engine which provides for heavier payloads and longer flight times.
Worldwide agricultural drone markets are poised to achieve significant growth with the use of cameras on stable flying platforms that are used to help implement precision farming. Crop visualization lets farmer’s better control and isolates areas for spraying and lets the drones do the spraying. The efficiency is much higher, the pesticide is much better and cause no damage to the crops.
Crop Spraying with unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) sprayer does not need a runway; they can take off and land vertically. Flying at low altitude of several meters, the crop-spraying can be controlled in any the sight of distance range. They are suitable for all kinds of complex terrain, crops and plantations of varying heights. Precise and accurate crop spraying ensures the best coverage and application of fertilizers or pesticides on your lands this it has wide application in various and gradually enjoys subsidiaries worldwide.
On January 16, 2017, the Ministry of Agriculture held a national conference on agricultural mechanization in Beijing. At the meeting, Li Weiguo, Director of the Agricultural Mechanization Division pointed out that in 2017 China will continue to implement the pilot project of new agricultural subsidies, allowing the appropriate area to carry out plant protection drones subsidies. This means that the plant protection drones will be included in the national agricultural subsidies directory. It shows government has really begun to pay attention to the roles of the plant protection drones in the field of agriculture.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture statistics, as of June 2016, there have been 4890 plant protection drones used in China, but it is quite a small quantity for the 1.2 billion acres land and the annual pest control area reaches nearly 5.4 billion acres, so the domestic potential application market is very broad. Previously Due to plant protection drones lack industry standards, drone has been included in the national agricultural subsidies directory, but now China Agricultural Mechanization Association has develop a series of standards, including product safety standards, operating standards, application standards and management practices for plant protection drones, all these will help drone industry to get listed on national agricultural subsidies directory.
And in Southeast Asia market, such as Viet Nam and Thailand, facing the more and more frequent agricultural pesticide spraying poisoning, the government is required to take measure to adopt more advanced automatic unmanned spraying methods such as agricultural drones equipped with advanced spraying nozzle and intelligent flight control system.
Aiming at this increasing demand and policy bonus, we will try our best to develop more manual and autopilot agricultural pesticide spraying drones and spread our business network all over the Asia.
