An agricultural drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle used in agriculture operations mostly in yield optimization and in monitoring crop growth and crop production. The aerial view provided by a drone can assists in the information of crop growth stages, crop health and soil variations in real time helping in any mitigation if required. Multi-spectral sensors can collect image in near-infrared as well as in visible spectrum of the electromagnetic spectrum.
There is a large capacity for growth in the area of agricultural drones. With technology constantly improving, imaging of the crops will need to improve as well. With the data that drones record from the crops the farmers are able to analyze their crops and make educated decisions on how to proceed given the accurate crop information. Software programs for analyzing and correcting crop production have the potential to grow in this market. Farmers will fly a drone over their crops, accurately identify an issue in a specific area, and take the necessary actions to correct the problem.This gives the farmer time to focus on the overall task of production instead of spending time surveying their crops. Additional uses include keeping track of livestock, surveying fences, and monitoring for plant pathogens.

▶1. Vetal tail-sitter VTOL drone
VETAL is one of the first VTOL drones in the market that have a fully onboard 4G/5G capability. It is designed for longer range BVLOS operation with advance AI controller, real-time cloud computing capability and ultra high resolution data streaming.
VETAL comes with advanced AI system for mission planning and data analysis. For survey / mapping : VETAL with HGMC and HiveGrid provide automated routine mapping, swam mission control, progress comparison, 3D volume calculation.
▶ 2. China’s DJI, the world’s largest drone manufacturer, is actively expanding the market by launching agricultural drones based on its platform.
The agricultural drone, MG-1S ADVANCED, flies with 8 propellers and can spray 10ℓ of pesticide on 0.4ha to 0.6ha farmland for 10 minutes, so it has 40-60 times faster work capacity than manual work.
Developed a drone data-based thermal sensing solution jointly with DroneDeploy, a cloud software company, and launched an agricultural analysis solution jointly with PrecisionHawk.
▶ 3. Lancaster 5 – PrecisionHawk | US
PrecisionHawk of the United States is an agricultural drone manufacturer established in 2010 and provides its own platform consisting of sensors (visual, thermal, hyperspectral), software, analysis, and tracking services.
The main model, Lancaster 5, is an autonomous flying drone equipped with technologies such as thermal infrared, multi-spectral, hyperspectral sensor, and lidar to be used in agriculture.
▶ 4.XAG V40 Twin-rotor Agriculture Drone
XAG V40 agri-drone uses just two rotors for better performance
Usually when we think of multicopter drones, we picture aircraft with four or more rotors. The V40 agricultural drone takes a different approach, using two tilting two rotors in an effort to improve range and spraying efficiency.
Manufactured by Chinese company XAG, the modular V40 comes with a 16-liter (4.2-gal) liquid tank for herbicide/pesticide, a 25-liter (6.6-gal) granular container for seeds, and it has two folding arms – each of those arms has one rotor (a set of two rotor blades) on top, and a spray nozzle on the bottom.
▶ 5. Eavision launches new intelligent agricultural spraying drone
Eavision has unveiled its new all-area-aware intelligent drone EA-30X designed by Pininfarina Shanghai, a professional agriculture spraying drone especially for hills and mountains that can cover all terrains, all time, and all plant protection application scenarios.
dual cameras on the new EA-30X enable it to work well in challenging environments
