When it comes to drones, most people think of them as a term for industry. Nowadays, with the rapid development of land circulation and land intensive management in China, the development of new medicinal machinery is developing rapidly. Agricultural drones can be said to be the most attractive product in the pharmaceutical industry in the last two years. In fact, in recent years, all over the country are actively developing and applying agricultural drones.

Development needs

As a large agricultural country, China has 1.8 billion acres of basic farmland and needs a large number of personnel to work in agricultural protection every year. The number of pesticide poisoning in China is more than 100,000 each year. The number of deaths caused by pesticide residues and pollution has not yet been counted. At the same time, the rural youth labor force gradually reduces, the manpower cost increases day by day. And pesticide harm to the human body, young people doesn’t want to spray pesticides. The agricultural drones can be operated remotely by remote control, avoiding the danger of spraying operators and ensuring the safety of spraying operations.

Effect of agricultural drones

It is estimated that spraying with drones can save at least 50% of pesticide. Drones can spray 40 ~ 60 acres of farmland per hour, which has high benefit. Drones are convenient and safe. They take-off and land vertically and do not need special take-off and landing airport. They can also hover in the air, remote control operation and ensure the safety of spraying workers.

World situation

It is understood that the best drone development country in the world-wide is Japan, it has a more complete service system and after-sales service. The cost of using drones in Japan is about 160 yuan per acres, and the market share is more than 60%. In second place is the United States, which mainly uses manned fixed-wing aircraft, with an annual spray area of up to 32 million hectares, accounting for 50% of the total cultivated land area. 65% of all chemical pesticides in the United States are sprayed by aircraft. However, the situation of farmland in China is different from that in the United States, which is mainly in the form of large plots, and most of the needs can be solved by using a manned machine for pesticide spraying. In terms of latitude and plot shape, the situation of farmland in China and Japan is more similar. In terms of crop types, both China and Japan grow large amounts of rice, so the use of drones is inevitable.

However, the situation in China and Japan is also different. The cement roads between fields in Japan are relatively complete, and farmers earn more than 10 times as much per acre of sprayed land as China. Therefore, Japan chose 110 kg of oil drone as agricultural drone. The drone can work in and out of the field, and the long lag time reduces the number of take-offs and landings, thus reducing the accident rate and improving the operational efficiency.

Domestic situation

According to incomplete statistics, there are more than 100 enterprises selling products in the field of agriculture. Strong demand for drones in the agricultural market, coupled with the government's push, has led some pesticide producers, service organizations and cooperatives to move into the field of agricultural drones.

The emergence of agricultural drones really changed the current situation of pesticide prevention and control in China, but in the background of various types, wide application, rapid popularization, and more and more in-depth technical research, no matter what type of agricultural drones, the three aspects of reliability, stability and safety should be paid attention to.
