DJI announces a agricultural drone designed to spray crops.
The Agras MG-1 is over 40 times more efficient than manual spraying. Using a microwave radar, the drone can scan the ground below and maintain the right distance from crops to spray the correct amount of liquid. It flies up to eight meters per second, modulating its spraying for even coverage. It can be used in automatic, semi-automatic, or manual operation, and is designed for durability with dustproofing, water resistance, and an anti-corrosive build. The Agras MG-1 also folds down into a compact package after use.
The Agras MG-1 will cost roughly $15,000 and DJI is launching it in China and Korea at first.
