A drone, in technological terms, is an unmanned aircraft. Drones are more formally known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or unmanned aircraft systems (UASes). Essentially, a drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly autonomously through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems, working in conjunction with onboard sensors and GPS.
In the recent past, UAVs were most often associated with the military, where they were used initially for anti-aircraft target practice, intelligence gathering and then, more controversially, as weapons platforms. Drones are now also used in a wide range of civilian roles ranging from search and rescue, surveillance, traffic monitoring, weather monitoring and firefighting, to personal drones and business drone-based photography, as well as videography, agriculture and even delivery services.
Drones can be used to map out pre-planting patterns to help farmers maximize the area used for planting crops. Each farmer can strategize and implement the best planting pattern for each crop. This minimizes the amount of time it takes to map out the pattern on foot.
Almost 84 percent say they use drones either daily or more than once a week. Crop monitoring, at 73 percent, is the most popular usage of drones by farmers, followed by soil and field analysis at 46 percent and health assessment of crops and livestock at 43 percent.
The use of drones in the agriculture industry is steadily growing as part of an effective approach to sustainable agricultural management that allows agronomists, agricultural engineers, and farmers to help streamline their operations, using robust data analytics to gain effective insights into their crops.
