You can easily get lost among the variety of drones and technologies currently being developed by SmartFarmig partners. So, we have prepared a brief overview of the key tasks of precision farming, which should be solved with the help of drone drivers.

Read and decide on what kind of drone solutions will be the best deal with the creation of vegetation indexes and orthophotomaps, the application of trichogramma and plant protection products, monitoring of crop condition and field measurements.

Application of a entomophage trichogramma.

A trichogram is an effective way of biological protection of agricultural plants from harmful insects.

There are not many options for making trichograms. First of all, pay attention on two drones. The first one is MegaDrone MD-1. The second is an remotely-piloted aerial system by DeViRo company. More precisely – a special modification of the drone "Leleka-100" for agriculture.

It is not worth comparing these drones. Each of them has its own advantages. The only thing to note is that besides the application of a trichogramma, MegaDrone MD-1 can solve other tasks as well. Such as the creation of vegetation indexes, the creation of orthophotomaps, crop monitoring, field measurements.

Creation of vegetation indexes, creation of orthophotomaps, monitoring of crop condition, field measurements.   

If you need a drone that can solve such tasks as creating vegetation indexes, creating orthophotomaps, monitoring the crop condition, measuring the fields – will have to choose from among many models.

A rival to MegaDrone MD-1 can be ITEC Skif, «Katana-Agro», Ukrspecsystems PD-1, DJI Phantom 4 Pro and many others. skif

The introduction of plant protection products. 

At present, the technology of Ukrainian and Chinese production can solve this problem qualitatively. We are talking about: 

  • DR-60 – remotely-piloted airplane domestic company by AeroDrone;
  • DJI Agras MG-1 – the first serial octopter for introducing variables of the rules for liquid pesticides and fertilizers.

Both solutions are designed to make plant protection products in automatic mode.
