Agriculture is undergoing significant changes as it strives to produce enough food while being sustainable. Farmers can use various high-tech sensing devices based on GPS, variable rate applications, steering systems, and remote sensing, as well as farm management software, in the new agricultural era. The introduction and use of modern and precise farm technologies have revolutionized farming. To put it another way, modern farm technology has revolutionized the way farmers work. Farmers can optimize farm productivity and profitability based on real-time field information using precise technology, while also protecting the environment, which can be a key to success.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), sometimes known as drones, are small aerial platforms that can weigh up to 20 kg (50 lbs). They can’t be boarded by a human body (yet) due to their size. Drones can be controlled in two ways: directly, with a human controlling the vehicle using a wireless remote, and autonomously, with the vehicle controlling itself and following a route based on data from GPS or other sensors. Drones are small, light aerial vehicles that can fly at extremely high altitudes and carry a variety of navigation and recording systems, such as RGB cameras, infrared cameras, and other sensors. Drones are very useful in farming because of their ability to deploy several sensors and capture high-resolution and low-cost images of crop conditions.
Drones with platform-mounted cameras and sensors are an excellent tool for obtaining airborne imagery. Drones were originally used for chemical spraying, but they are now a great tool for capturing aerial imagery with platform-mounted cameras and sensors. Images can range from simple visible-light photographs to multi-spectral imagery that can be used to assess various aspects of plant health, weeds, and assets. To summarize, drones assist farmers in making more efficient use of inputs such as seeds, fertilizers, water, and pesticides.
This allows for timely pesticide application, saves time for crop scouting, lowers overall farm production costs, and ensures high yield and quality crops. Agriculture technology is always changing. Collecting accurate and reliable georeferenced data based on GPS coordinates and automated steering systems, along with the use of remote sensing, is an essential part of precision farming that can optimize both farm productivity and profitability.
