Precision agriculture is a farming management concept that uses drones for agriculture to measure, observe, and respond to variability found in crops. It is important to adopt this model if we are to meet the food demand by 2050.
From automated planting to crop management with real-time monitoring, drones have a vital role to play in the future of farming. Although unmanned aerial drones for agriculture are in their infancy in most of Africa, the US and China have adopted this technology for a while now.
Slowly but surely, the agricultural industry is realizing the benefits and discovering different strategies on how drones can be beneficial in move their crop production plans forward.
The future for this technology looks promising with 62% of the agricultural industry potentially looking to own a UAV in the future. However more than a third still need to be convinced and Ghana stands within this bracket.
AeroShutter, aims to address the ailing Agric. sector with drone technology in Ghana. Our primary focus will be to service big farms and their out-growers to produce bumper yields for processing factories.
Our unique services range from mapping of farmlands, plant health analysis, crop spraying, crop dusting and plant counting. We ensure that from sowing to harvesting, the farmer is rest assured of a good cycle.
Goldman Sachs predicts the agricultural sector to be the second largest in the world in the next five years. Other research companies estimate the agricultural drone market to grow at a compound average rate of 30% by 2022.
AeroShutter intends to rank Ghana amongst these impressive figures in the nearest future. There is an extremely exciting future for Drones in Agriculture and we’re open for business.
