Unmanned aerial vehicles are widely used in agriculture, such as forest protection, fishery quantitative feeding, surveying and mapping, pesticide spraying, etc.

UAV has been widely used in agriculture in China.

Take the plant protection UAV as an example. Last year, the plant protection UAV of the professional pest control service organization alone exceeded 120000, and the operation area exceeded 1.07 billion mu.

The plant protection UAV was a new thing a few years ago, and now it is very popular in rural areas. The current plant protection UAV is more intelligent. Artificial intelligence helps the UAV to identify the farmland boundary, the fruit tree statistics, the weeds, the pests and diseases, and the cotton boll. The manufacturer can also set the mode for specific crops.

This also makes the operation of the plant protection UAV simpler and more efficient. In 2015, the operation efficiency was only 50 mu / h, and last year, it has increased to 320 mu / h.

Last year, there were more than 200000 flyers flying plant protection UAVs. So many employees mean that the industry of flyers has become very popular. The market that was very profitable in the past has disappeared, so many people have left the industry.


However, in Southeast Asia, the application of UAVs in agriculture has yet to be popularized.

Chinese UAV manufacturers have made some progress in entering this market.

Such as the most widely used plant protection UAV.

China’s plant protection UAVs often work with pesticide manufacturers to develop overseas markets. For example, Jifei technology signed a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement with Bayer to promote the popularization of intelligent agricultural technology in Southeast Asia and Pakistan.

In many places in Southeast Asia, cash crops such as palm and durian grow very tall. In addition, the terrain is rather rugged. Traditional methods, such as backpack type manual spray machine, backpack type electric spray machine, stretcher type spray machine, pedal type spray machine and motorized high-pressure spray gun, are used to spray pesticides. Either the machine cannot be transported in, or the spraying is inconvenient and inaccessible, with low work efficiency and high labor intensity.

However, it is easy to suffer from heatstroke when artificial medicine is applied outdoors in hot weather. Pesticides in the air or on the surface of the skin are also easy to cause poisoning.

In addition, other agricultural work, such as surveying and mapping of forests and fields, is also used by UAVs.

In Malaysia, Aoshi forestry protection drones were used to map palm forests, reducing the cost by more than 30%. The Dajiang plant protection UAV provides a customized service “oil palm mode” for the pest control of oil palm, which can save pesticides by spraying the tree center at a fixed point.

If the oil palm is filled with medicine according to the traditional manual method, it can only be filled with about 60 mu a day. However, if Dajiang T16 is used, it can be filled with medicine about 200 mu a day, which is equivalent to three times of the labor efficiency, which is very labor-saving.

Saving labor is very important for agriculture in many countries.

For example, in Thailand, the population over 60 years old now accounts for about 18% of the total population, and the aging situation has been serious. Young people also tend to go to the cities to find opportunities. Some low-income, tired and dangerous agricultural work, such as spraying pesticides, is done by Laotian workers. After all, Laos and Thailand have similar cultures and are poorer.

However, after the outbreak of the epidemic, there was a shortage of Lao workers who wanted to come to Thailand to work.

In the plight of labor shortage, local people began to spray pesticides on crops with drones, and the experience was good. Manual spraying of pesticides can cover more than 20 mu of rice fields in the local area in a day, while using plant protection drones can operate more than 100 mu a day, with three or four times higher efficiency.

We mentioned in the Russian Ukrainian conflict, China’s pride lies in the gun that in the Russian Ukrainian conflict, Xinjiang was widely used by both sides.

The use of drones to kill people is obviously something that Dajiang does not want to see, so it has to temporarily suspend all commercial activities in Russia and Ukraine.

UAVs can obviously play a great role in peaceful economic activities, such as agricultural production. Chinese UAV enterprises are exploring the agricultural market overseas. UAV 7 is obviously better than flying over farmland.
