Engineering student develops agricultural drones to alleviate farmers’ difficulties

Engineering student develops agricultural drones to alleviate farmers’ difficulties

Drones have captured the popular imagination of enthusiasts across the globe. They have a wide array of applications that include security, surveillance, and photography and can even be used for leisure and recreation. However, one ingenious engineer has pioneered a new one-of-a-kind technology for drones that can promote sustainable farming. Ambula Gopi Raja, a student of mechanical engineering in a reputed college in the state of Andhra Pradesh has developed a drone that is capable of spraying pesticides over large swathes of farmland in a matter of hours.  

Farming is an extremely laborious job and requires a farmer’s constant supervision throughout the day. Larger the farmland, greater are the effort and care required. But due to increasing difficulties in finding laborers in rural districts, farmers regularly face enormous difficulties in managing tasks such as spraying pesticides over their crops and managing the levels of the same. But Raja’s invention could have lasting effects on the lives of farmers, enabling them to administer pesticides and save their crops, all in a completely affordable way. Additionally, due to the lack of relevant equipment, farmers often end up with serious infections and diseases due to improper handling of pesticides and chemicals. AmbulaGopi Raja’s innovation could be a comprehensive solution to a common problem plaguing farmers in India.

Each of the drones has a 12-megapixel camera and equipped with scanners to detect if crops have been affected by pests.
