Kishan Drone Given Permission To Operate


Kishan Drone will finally be a reality in India. Nearly two months after its announcement, the Central government on Monday granted interim approval for spraying of nearly all the registered pesticides formulations using Kisan Drones and also brought out the standard operating procedures (SOPs).

Kisan Drones are slated to be used in pesticide and nutrient application by providing precise instructions for effective and safe operations of drones. In the Union Budget, the government had said, the use of ‘Kisan Drones’ will be promoted for crop assessment, digitization of land records, and spraying of insecticides, and nutrients.

“Spraying of fertilisers is being done by drones. ‘Kisan Drones’ is a new age revolution. Very soon, high-capacity drones will help the farmers to send fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers straight to the market. Fisherfolks can send fresh catch from lakes, rivers, or from seas directly for selling,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said during the announcement of the Kishan Drone in the Union Budget.
