Drone Use Case for Irrigation

Flood simulation Drone survey helps re-create the entire topography into millions of 3D data points; this helps in performing flood simulations over the data and accurately identify low lying areas which are sensitive to flooding and plan safety aspects.

Drain planning Slope analysis can be performed more accurately than ever; this helps to plan all grade drains and check dams in a holistic manner.

Capacity planning Estimate the exact storage capacity of drains/dams/canals/reservoirs; this way irrigation planning can be done effectively and farmlands can be benefited immensely.

Future Outlook of Drones in Agriculture

Drones (UAV’s) offer a range of exciting possibilities for improving the management of crops, livestock, fisheries, forests and other natural resources. UAVs application in agriculture opens the gateway to access real time information on the farm. It can be used at different stages throughout the cropping cycle:

Soil and field analysis – After getting precise 3D maps for soil, plantation and nutrient requirements of the crop can be analysed for further operations.
Planting – UAV’s can shoot seeds with nutrients in the soil with an average uptake of 75 percent, thus bringing down costs for planting.
Crop spraying – The promise of drones not only limits on crop monitoring through imagery captured by its high resolution cameras, but also on applying inputs such as pesticides and spraying seeds.
Crop monitoring – These remote sensed data can also be used to speed up the painstaking process of conducting crop inventories and yield estimates.
Irrigation – Drones with hyperspectral, multispectral, or thermal sensors can identify which parts of a field are dry or need improvements.
Health assessment – The most widely used application based on drone-acquired image data is to assess the health of crop vegetation. A drone equipped with infrared cameras can enable the development of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). This level of information enables the early identification of pests, diseases and pests.

The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, has great potential in supporting
evidence-based planning, in spatial data collection and connected analytics to address some of the most pressing problems faced by agriculture.

With the advantages that drones provides, when combined with analytic tools that can interpret the data and images to actionable information, it is sure to bring a revolution in agrarian economies like India.
