India’s agricultural sector has often not saved tempo with new know-how, relying largely on conventional strategies.
However start-ups specialising in drone know-how are attempting to vary that – one farm at a time.
These corporations are encouraging farmers to make use of drones to watch the well being of crops and spray them with fertiliser and pesticides. The development comes amid the federal authorities’s bold plan to make India a hub for drones by 2030.
The BBC’s Arunoday Mukharji travelled to Kancheepuram district within the southern state of Tamil Nadu to know how farmers are adapting to working with the system on their fields.
