The use of drones is expanding massively, so much so that not only do people have it as an entertainment device but also many use it as a work tool. In this case, many of us are struck by the use of drones in Agriculture. Many use the information provided by the sensors to improve crops or perform tasks at the right time. Thus, the role of drones is fundamentally to tell the farmer what humidity there is, the temperature of the plants, the size, the speed of growth, etc ... data that recently did not exist and that now they are a very useful tool for farmers.
It is also something that can be used with other technologies, but of course the drone allows to cover more space in less time and with more reliable data, hence its popularity of use. In this case we talk about three models of drones, Although there are actually many others and even a normal drone that flies could work but it would not give the same performance as other models.
AgDrone is a basic drone or rather a base to which we can attach all kinds of accessories that we want to use, from cameras to sensors, whatever we want, although there is no sensor in it. However, its best quality is the reception of data, a reception that is centralized in a cloud server that will also allow us to consult the data from any device and at any location.
Possibly Lancaster is the most complete drone in terms of sensors, in addition to the typical ones that we can find in a drone, Lancaster has others such as thermal vision, multispectral vision, etc ... Even Artificial Intelligence software is provided that will let the drone know when the weather conditions are adverse, when they are not and what to do in those cases. Lancaster is one of the most complex drones that exist not only for Argiculture but also at a general level.
AgEagle is one of the drones that does not live up to its name. The drone in question is designed to withstand strong gusts of wind and withstand the inclement weather quite a bit. All this is due to the coating of carbon fiber and carbon fiber that together with a layer of polycarbonate make a fairly solid structure for the drone. In addition, the device comes with a launcher, a camera, the software necessary to make it fly and control it and the information necessary to make it fly and use it in our fields. It is certainly one of the best options if our climate is not very good.
Conclusion about these drones for Agriculture
As we said at the beginning, any drone is good to use in Agriculture but these three models are the best option if we want to use drones for professional purposes. I would not know which model to recommend since they are all three very good and it may depend on the climate, the extension of the fields, the orography, etc ... to lean towards one and the other. As for the price, if we are going to use it for professional purposes, any price may be affordable or very expensive, depending on whether we know how to take advantage of it or not.
