Agricultural drones have been used for two decades, and farmers around the world rely on pioneers like the remotely controlled Yamaha RMAX helicopter to help with the crop spraying. Nowadays, the next generation of drones influences the sector with the ability of a fast and effective way to monitor the crops and herds spanning over vast areas or as a relay system to convey information in real time to the connected equipment and installations.
Drones can also be used to analyze field conditions and deliver accurate interventions such as fertilizers, nutrients and pesticides to crops that need them. They also can plant seeds to remote locations, lowering the equipment and labor costs. By lowering the cost and improving the yield, drones can generate value of 85 to 115 billion dollars.
