The New Uses for Drones

Agriculture and Reforestation Drones

Drones Specialized in Agriculture and Reforestation

Planting trees is a great idea, it is very important to replace all those that have been cut and all those who have disappeared victims of climate change or as a result of forest fires.

Until now trees are being planted to reforest the affected areas of the planet but it is really a difficult task, very expensive and terribly tedious, in most cases is also very dangerous, now with the arrival of Drones this work is being completely transformed, a Drone created especially for this work is able to sow approximately 36,000 to 40,000 seeds a day, comparing it with a team of people to plant by hand can do approximately 3,000 seeds a day, it is an exhausting job and very high risk because of the inaccessibility of some terribly scabrous areas.

These drones are equipped with a system that shoots the seeds through a small cannon more like a compressed air rifle, flying at heights between 2 and 6 meters shoot the seeds, which are encapsulated in a gel cylinder with nutrients that help the tree grow when the seed begins to germinate, those cylinders are embedded in the soil as the drone goes flying and firing one per second.

The Drones can fly approximately for 30 minutes, it is enough to change the battery to keep them flying again and are able to cover an Acre in 1.5 hours, the seed capsules work approximately like the paint capsules but because of the way they are made they can enter at least 3 At 4 inches dipper in ground, they usually contain also an herbicide to control weeds and a toxic element for pests, thus preventing the tree from being attacked when it is very small.

There is no doubt that it is necessary to replant trees in a profitable way because each year more than 6 million acres of trees are lost in the forests of the world, we hope that this new technology will produce the expected result, so far it has been developing very well and with what is being learned now the future is seen coming better for the planet.
