Precision agriculture is one of the major verticals for the commercial drone industry. In the U.S. alone, over 30% of farmers are using drone technology, with another 30% planning on implementing a drone program within the next year.
The Swift agricultural drone solution of China’s leading industrial drone manufacturer MMC demonstrates why. MMC is one of the most innovative developers of drone technology in the world – and with their leading agriculture solution, they’ve included all the features agronomists might be looking for.
Taking aerial images – thermal or not- with drones to map fields is the first step in using drones for precision agriculture. But around the world, as regulations allow, drones are used for much more. Replacing expensive and time/space consuming manned aircraft solutions, drones are used for all kinds of crop spraying applications – saving both money and crops.
