Use of Drone technology in agriculture of Pakistan


Federal minister for science and technology declared that Pakistan has organized drones of agriculture sector. In a post on social networking website the minister said that drones can spray 16 liter pesticides and can also find the affected areas of the crops.

Agriculture drone is unmanned aerial vehicles used to agriculture development increase crop production and crop growth. Sensors and numerical imaging abilities can give farmers their fields. Using agriculture drone gather information from it. It can be useful for improving crop yield and farm efficiency.

In agriculture drones farmers see their fields from the sky. The differences between healthy and unhealthy plants the farmer show the combination between them. Anti-drone technology used to detect track and destroy unmanned aerial vehicles. The development of technology make drone more sophisticated and their practice increases over time. The unmanned aerial vehicles developed and built by the national and scientific commission, organization of Pakistan in a civil scientific along with Pakistan air force. It has also been used by Pakistan army. Drone use is allowed in Pakistan but there are many rules that need to be followed when flying the country. Drones are controlled by remote ground control system.

Farmers who are interested to use this technology will have to submit application to agriculture deputy director of their applicable area. He will mention the application to the selected official. Proper analysis will be accepted on and farmer will be decided no opposition certificate after agreeing the area, time and duration for the use of drone technology.

Drones use for Agriculture purposes:

Agriculture drone can assist in accessing crop growth and production. Their use is rapidly expending to commercial scientific agriculture such as policing aerial photography and drug racing.

Agriculture drone use was the reason developed the potential to be the biggest market. Ability to use drones in farming crop health analysis livestock and other agriculture expert.

Drones technology usefully developed in following agriculture sectors:

  • Applications of pesticides on crops
  • Monitoring of weeds pests and nutritional deficiency
  • Physical analysis of crops, area and water resources
  • Research and development

Soils and field analysis:


Drones can be instrumental the start of the crop cycle. 3-D maps for initial soil analysis beneficial in planning seed planting. Soil analysis data provides for irrigation and nitrogen level management after the planting process.


In planting system drone attain uptake of 75% and decrease the planting cost by 85%.

Crop spraying:

Distance measuring equipment that are used in the light detection and ranging drone adjust the topography and geography collision. Drones can scan the ground and spray the liquid amount and real time coverage. Increase efficiency with a reduction of chemical amount into groundwater.

Crop monitoring:

Crop monitoring together farming largest obstacle. Monitoring challenges by increasingly weather conditions and field maintained costs. Time series animation show the development of crop and production inferences and crop management.


Drones can identify parts of a field with multi spectral thermal sensors and need improvement. Drones allows the calculation once the crop is growing which describe the density of health of the crop which show amount of energy or heat of the crop.

Health assessment:

By scanning a crop using both visible and infrared light. Drones devices can identify which plants reflect different amounts of green light. Multi spectral image can produce this information.

Farmer can apply and moisture remedies more precisely. In case of crop failure farmer will be able loses more efficient claims.

Livestock monitoring:

Drones with thermal imaging cameras allows a single remote pilot to monitor livestock’s. Drones give livestock’s farmer a new way to keep eye on their livestock’s resulting grater profit.
