Agriculture spraying drones in the UK are currently being held back by rules and regulations. Hence, investment into the sector is also severely limited, holding back advancements and major benefits.
Researcher Jonathan Gill from the Harper Adams University in Newport, United Kingdom, shared this opinion earlier this week during a meeting of the All-party Parliamentary Group on Science and Technology in Agriculture.
During this meeting, Gill shared his comments to MPs and others in attendance on what the spray drones could be doing and how they can reduce the amount of fossil fuel-backed farming. He also shared how drones can spread pesticides and other products for much less and in shorter time periods.
