Drones have been in use since 1980s. They are constantly finding use in various industries and are expanding faster with growing investments and technological innovations. Among the most pioneering areas is that of agriculture. Agriculturists can count on drones to increase productivity, produce food and ensuring sustainability. Drones along with agriculturists, government, technical and corporate leaders will go a long way in solving the agrarian crisis. Drones help in soil and field analysis by providing precise 3D maps for early soil analysis which will help in planning the seeding patterns. Drone planting systems help in reducing costs of plantation with the help of start-ups and provide all the necessary nutrients. They are also helpful in increasing efficiency through crop spraying which use ultrasonic echoing and lasers. In irrigation, drones are useful in identifying which portion of the field requires immediate attention and calculating vegetation index that determines the health and density of the crop. Drones are used for health assessment of the crops by scanning both visible and near – infrared light, which produces multispectral images of plants. Employing drones help in better crop management and reduce risk and field management costs.
Rising awareness about precision farming is the major driver for the market. Governmental support to improve agricultural yield coupled with structural frameworks are other reasons. Drones produce insightful data that will give valuable data on crop health, reduce impact of climatic changes on crops and increase pesticide and insecticide effectiveness. On the basis of type, fixed – wing drones have the highest market share. On the basis of application, spraying leads the market and is expected to be fast growing as well. Other applications like field monitoring and crop scouting are also expected to grow considerably. Region – wise, Europe leads the market for agricultural drones due to the growing needs to enhance crop productivity. This is followed by North America, which is expected to be the fastest growing region.
