In recent years, drones have become widely used for both recreational and commercial purposes. From small businesses finding ways to use their beginner drones to make money, to huge corporations using advanced drone technology; many different industries have found ways to use drones to benefit their business. Some industries using drones include agriculture, real estate, and insurance, but these are just a few of many. The possibilities for how drones can help a company are endless, and we’re going to cover how some common industries have been using drones.
Agriculture is one industry that drones help a great deal. Many countries are large exporters of food, and it’s projected that farmers globally will have to produce 70 percent more to feed the global population. This high demand gives drones an opportunity to be used for a variety of tasks. There are drones available that are equipped with water, pesticides, or herbicides that can release a payload on a specific area with the farmer watching from yards away on a screen.
There are also drones that have abilities to deliver crop health reports that can tell farmers crucial information about how crops are doing, whether it’s flooded or too dry and more. This increases efficiency which is necessary with a growing population.
