Agriculture sector is the most promising sector, dealing with the lot of problems now a day’s one of the innumerable problems is labour unavailability for farming. Other problems or difficulties are extreme weather events, inadequate amount and inefficient application of fertilizer, infection, diseases, allergies and other health problems due to chemical application (fungicide, pesticide, insecticide etc.) or insect/ animal bite. FAO and ITU, together with partners, have been working together in addressing same of the challenges faced in agriculture through the use of sustainable ICTs. Unmanned aircraft proved to be one of those techniques that allow rapid and non-destructive analysis of air quality, physical properties of the components of soil or crop growth. Farmer’s today have a variety of complex factors that influence the success of their farms. From water access to changing climate, wind, soil quality, the presence of weeds and insects, variable growing seasons, and more. As a result, farmers are turning to high-level drone technology to help remedy these problems, and provide fast and efficient solutions. Drones can be used to collect data related to crop yields, livestock health, soil quality, nutrient measurements, weather and rainfall results, and more. This data can then be used to get a more accurate map of any existing issues, as well as create solutions based upon extremely reliable data.
