Thanks to new agriculture drones, farmers are using high-precision methods for geo-tagging aerial images. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones can help farmers keep a track of their fields and livestock, which can prevent diseases.

Drones provide information regarding soil, fruits, crops, and weeds. These devices aid in crop scouting and alert users in making the right decisions about pesticides & fertilizers. This can help farmers increase their agricultural yield without any eco harm or wastage.

Furthermore, developers are in cahoots with the government to track and prevent illegal activities; like poaching, logging, and deforestation.

How Does The Drone Technology Work?

UAVs are equipped with sensors and good imaging capabilities. Some even have thermal infrared sensors for better monitoring. Drone systems consist of hardware, sensors, and software. They capture high resolution images even in cloudy climates.

New technologies, such as flight-planning software allows users to set flight paths, allowing better land coverage. Drones click pictures with their special light sensor cameras. Once these drones land, their software enables users to collate and weave geo-tagged photos together, allowing optimized monitoring.
