Agricultural Drone Services for Pacific Northwest Growers

The Future of Crop Protection Has Arrived

The amazing Agras UAV has been approved for use in the USA, and now you can be one of the first in the Pacific Northwest to hire this advanced technology to make spraying and spreading operations for orchards, vineyards, and other specialty crops more efficient.

Using drones means less product waste, reduced overspray, and decreased worker liability.

Spraying

Drone spraying fills that sweet spot between too big for manual spraying, too small for airplane spraying, or too steep for ground rigs.

Spreading

Ag drones can spread dry materials too, such as fertilizer, seed, and mosquito control pellets. It can even spread beneficial insects and pollen.

F.A.Qs

This is a new service in the Pacific Northwest, so naturally you’ll have lots of questions.

Agricultural Drones, or Ag Drones, can provide crop protection via spraying liquid materials or spreading dry materials. Drones can be very accurate, using less product and causing less drift, and since they can fly up and over difficult terrain, they can access areas around fence lines, waterways, ground contours, trees and more that other machines such as fixed wing airplanes or ground rigs can’t get to easily.

Ag drones can also be used for other applications like mosquito abatement, spreading pollen, or releasing beneficial insects over crops.

Crops such as fruit trees, hops, or vineyards with hilly terrain are great candidates for drone spraying. And row crops with smaller, irregular-shaped fields that an airplane can’t safely do could also benefit.

We believe that the data shows a big savings impact on a grower’s bottom line. Because of their efficiency, drones need less product, so there is savings on chemicals. Drones can also replace manual spraying, saving on payroll, employment taxes and insurance, and health-related incidents. And of course, it can save hundreds of thousands of dollars if replacing a ground rig.

Coverage can vary widely, but one drone can cover 5-30 acres per hour, depending on the amount of product per acre being applied, the type of crop, and the terrain. This would equate to 50-300 acres per day with one drone.
