Pinpointed Crop Spraying


With traditional spraying techniques, workers wear knapsack sprayers that are either run by heavy batteries or manually pumped. Tractor-driven boom sprayers and airplanes incur extra time and expenses for spraying the entire crop field. These methods also often over-apply fertilizer and pesticide leading to unwanted waste and run-off. Yet, crops need consistent spraying and foliar fertilizer applications to maintain quality yields. Farmers now take advantage of drones to spray specific plants and areas for treatment, saving money from overfertilizing during the growing season. Similarly, drones are capable of spraying herbicide and pesticide in the identified problem spots. COTS drones make spot spraying easier, more cost-effective, and cheaper than any other existing method.
