China creates agrodrons with a special plant spraying system.
Agricultural drone development company EAVision has raised $ 30 million in investment. The drones are specially designed to work in geographically difficult areas, as about 34% of the agricultural land of mainland China is located in mountainous areas. Fruits and nuts are grown there, and tea is also cultivated.
Unlike many other agrodrones that can operate on flat and level terrain, EAVision drones use combined AI-based computer vision and sensor systems to operate in hilly, mountainous, and cascade-style farms. Drones orientate well and keep their balance in motion among plants with complex vegetation types.
They are equipped with a special spraying system that allows you to treat plants at a distance of only about a meter from the top.
According to the results of tests carried out on a citrus farm in Guangxi province, drones showed the result of treating crops from spider mites by 90% higher than the results of traditional operations.
