International Agricultural Drone Application Scenario Expansion to Help Innovation in Agricultural Production

As a new type of agricultural equipment with high efficiency, energy saving, environmental protection and intelligence, agricultural drones are favored by governments, enterprises and farmers, and the application scenarios are expanding, providing a strong support for global agricultural production innovation.


Agricultural drones are mainly divided into two categories: plant protection drones and remote sensing drones. Plant protection drones are mainly used for spraying chemicals, seeds and fertilizers, while remote sensing drones are mainly used to obtain high-resolution images and data of farmland. According to the agricultural characteristics and needs of different regions, agricultural drones present diverse application scenarios worldwide.


In Asia, rice is the main food crop, and the complex terrain of paddy fields makes traditional manual and ground mechanical operations difficult to achieve. And agricultural drones can perform seeding and pesticide operations on paddy fields, improving the efficiency and quality of operations. For example, in Southeast Asia, we provide a full range of solutions for local rice cultivation, including rice direct seeding, plant protection spraying and remote sensing monitoring.


In the European region, grapes are one of the important cash crops, but due to the rugged terrain, small plots, and dense population, the traditional spraying method has problems such as low efficiency, high cost, and high pollution. Agricultural drones, however, can spray accurately on vineyards, reducing drift and waste and protecting the environment and health. For example, in the town of Harau in northern Switzerland, local grape growers use drones for vineyard spraying operations, saving 80% of time and 50% of chemicals.


In the African region, food security is an important issue, and traditional agricultural production methods suffer from backward technology, lack of information, and waste of resources. The agricultural drones can obtain real-time information and data of farmland through remote sensing technology, and provide farmers with scientific planting guidance and management advice. For example, in Oromia State in southern Ethiopia, the OPEC Foundation has supported a project that uses remote sensing drones to provide local wheat growers with data on soil moisture, pest and disease distribution, harvest forecasts and other data, and sends them customized advice through a mobile app.


Experts believe that with the continuous innovation and cost reduction of drone technology, agricultural drones will be widely used in more countries and regions, bringing more convenience and benefits to global agricultural production and providing strong support for achieving sustainable development goals.
