Farmers still use traditional ways to assess plant health and spray fertilizers on crops which is time consuming and in the long run leads to lower yields. A process that typically takes weeks with conventional manpower. Also, the sector has been continuously losing the interest of the young generation as most of them choose to migrate towards developed cities of countries.
SKT Aeroshutter is offering UAV products and services to support the sector with services such as farm mapping, yield estimation, input application and crop health assessment. This can help smallholder farmers to improve their productivity and increase income. Furthermore, the UAVs can be used to spray large acres of farmland within hours. Moreover, the introduction of these ICT techniques will help attracting the young generation to the agricultural sector and will contribute to stooping unwanted migrations.
