The distribution of organic farming products with drones represents an interesting solution. Above all, it can reduce production costs, increase productivity, and guarantee a healthy and high-quality product in respect of nature.
Drones in agriculture are used to monitor crops by carrying out proximity surveys and for biological treatments through aerial distribution at low altitudes.
Through targeted biological treatments, it is possible to guarantee the well-being of crops against the uncontrolled proliferation of parasites and diseases capable of compromising whole yields. Furthermore, the rapid inspection of the fields allows understanding the real potential and needs of the crops. The result is a maximization of the yield and a better quality of the final product with a lower environmental impact deriving from water, fertilizers, and pesticides.
Aermatica3D solutions are now widely used to effectively distribute capsules, granules, powders, and liquids, as well as beneficial insects, thus allowing any type of biological treatment to be carried out in any kind of cultivated field.
The D-Box is an automated capsule distribution kit that can be easily integrated into a drone used in the biological control of the corn borer. In addition, the kit is associated with our BLY3D app, which allows you to better manage the vending machine by quickly planning automatic flights based on the shape of the field and the correct quantity of capsules to be distributed promptly and precisely.
In-flight, the kit installed on the drone releases the capsules based on the planning made based on the position detected by the GPS, and at the end of the flight, a comprehensive report of the releases made is generated.
The rapid refilling of the capsules is guaranteed by the possibility of quickly removing the empty tank and loading the full one to restart with a stop of a few seconds between one flight and the next.
Maximum capacity 3 liters (on drone with 1 kg load capacity)
· Distribution speed up to 2 Capsules per second
· 5 ha per flight
· Example of use: biological control of the corn borer
The G-kit is a kit for the automatic distribution of granules that can be easily integrated into a drone and compatible with the powder distribution kit. It is possible to distribute both powder and granules with the same drone.
Using the app BLY3D, designed by Aermatica3D, it is also possible to plan precise flight missions at constant altitudes from the ground, appropriately configuring the quantities of product to be distributed to ensure better and uniform coverage of the surface to be treated.
It is possible to adapt the distribution system adjusting the distribution to the product’s characteristics to be distributed according to the specific needs of each scenario, from simpler to more complex, for example, by spreading the granules only at the edges of a crop.
· Variable rate distribution
· 5 ha per flight with BLY3D Software for optimized flight plans
Example of use: Organic fight with red spider mite (on soy, on tomato)
The P-kit is a kit for the automatic distribution of powders used, for example, for assisted pollination. The grazing flight to the crop ensures that the right amount of product is dispensed, avoiding excesses or uncovered areas. Thanks to the automatic flight planning with the app BLY3D, designed by Aermatica3D, it is possible to plan and control that the drone flies at a constant altitude, even on steep slopes, appropriately configuring the quantities of product to be distributed.
The P-kit ensures precise powder distribution and uniform surface coverage according to the needs of the specific application.
Maximum capacity up to 10 liters (on drone with 10 kg load capacity)
· Variable rate distribution
· 10 ha per flight
· Example of use: assisted pollination of the walnut, the olive tree.
The distribution of beneficial insects with drones is an alternative to traditional pest control methods for organic and eco-sustainable agriculture. For example, one of the applications can be Phitoseidus Permillis against the red spider mite of soy.
The A-Kit is a kit designed by Aermatica3D for the automatic distribution of beneficial insects and represents an efficient alternative to traditional or manual distribution.
These solutions can counteract the proliferation of parasites and ensure healthier, safer, and more productive agriculture using the solutions offered by nature.
Maximum capacity up to 1 liter (on drone with 1 kg load capacity)
• Variable-rate distribution
• 2 ha per flight
• Example of use: biological fight against vine scale insects
