Trusting the New-Age Drone Technology to Carry the Vision of a Smarter Agricultural Practice

Drone Nerds, a drone technology leader, has officially announced an expansion of its enterprise solutions’ portfolio, an expansion which will see the company introduce two new drones in DJI Agras T50 and DJI Agras T25 to its line-up. According to certain reports, these drones are specifically designed to meet the needs of a modern agricultural operation. In practice, the stated object involves elevating crop protection and enhancing agricultural operations across fields of all sizes. Talk about the whole value proposition on a slightly deeper level, we begin from DJI Agras T25, which brings to the fore a 20 kg spraying payload, a 25 kg spreading payload, and a coverage of up to 23 hectares per hour. Offering precision and versatility tailored to specific crop care needs, the drone in question also has a spiral channel spinning disk which ensures uniform spreading of materials, and on the other hand, there is an option to switch to smaller hopper gates. The latter detail, in particular, goes a long distance to empower lower flow rate spreading with higher precision. Furthermore, the T25 also arrives on the scene bearing an ability to support automated mapping, HD map and flight route generation, and intelligent boundary identification, all of it making the drone an absolute game-changer, as far as optimizing operational efficiency is concerned.

“As the agricultural industry continues to evolve, the DJI Agras T50 and T25 stand out as game-changers. With their unparalleled efficiency and precision spraying capabilities, these drones are revolutionizing farming practices. At Drone Nerds, we’re thrilled to provide our clients with such groundbreaking solutions from DJI, empowering them to achieve unprecedented levels of productivity and sustainability”, said Jeremy Schneiderman, CEO of Drone Nerds.

Turning our attention towards DJI Agras T50, this drone is provided with a 40 kg spraying payload, a 50 kg spreading payload, and a coverage of up to 21 hectares per hour. Owing to that, the stated device is able to conceive unprecedented efficiency in regards to crop protection. Another detail worth a mention here is rooted in the presence of a Dual Atomizing Spraying System. You see, this system is what makes it possible for the drone to deliver fine, uniform spray droplets, while simultaneously increasing flow rate of 16 liters per minute. Such an upgrade directly translates to swift and effective spraying in otherwise highly-wasteful large-volume operations. More on the point of wastage would reveal how the drone is even given a set of solenoid valves that eliminate drips and leaks so to ensure precision and minimize wastage.

Although slightly different in their specific features, both Agras T50 and T25 boast state-of-the-art features to elevate agricultural practices. For instance, using DJI RC Plus and real-time mapping capabilities, the drones can automatically identify obstacles, and at the same time, generate accurate 3D flight routes. There is also a four-antenna O3 Transmission system which keeps the connection stable whenever the user is working with tall crops. Hold on, we still have a few bits left to unpack, considering we haven’t discussed that each drone is given a Active Phased Array Radar with double the number of RF channels, forming a combination that gives the device access to higher detection precision when pitted against complex environments. Markedly enough, once you combine this with the drone’s rear-phased array radar, the whole system can achieve multidirectional obstacle sensing. In case that didn’t sound like impressive enough, then it might be worth our while to dig into those two sets of Binocular Vision sensors that, on their part, can accurately sense terrain and depict obstacles in detail for automatic obstacle bypassing and Terrain Following over steep slopes.
