Context: Recently, Prime minister flagged off 100 Kisan drones in different cities and towns of India to spray pesticides in farms across India.
Expected implications of the move
Significance/ Benefits of Drone Technology
Widespread adoption: The subsidized purchase of agriculture drones for CHCs/Hi-tech Hubs will make the technology affordable, resulting in their widespread adoption.
Enhanced Production: The farmer can improve production capabilities through comprehensive irrigation planning, adequate monitoring of crop health, increased knowledge about soil health, and adaptation to environmental changes.
Effective and Adaptive Techniques: Drone usage results in regular updates to farmers about their crops and helps develop strengthened farming techniques.
Greater safety of farmers: It is safer and more convenient for farmers to use drones to spray pesticides in terrains challenging to reach, infected areas, taller crops, and power lines.
Faster data for quick decision-making: Drone surveys back farmers with accurate data processing that encourages them to make quick and mindful decisions without second-guessing, allowing farmers to save the time invested in crop scouting.
Useful for Insurance claims: Farmers use the data captured through drones to claim crop insurance in case of any damages. They even calculate risks/losses associated with the land while being insured.
