Drones are used extensively by farmers and other agricultural professionals. If a farmer wants to seed an area of terrain that's difficult to access by land, for example, he or she may use a drone. The following report analyzes the global agricultural drones market.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or what's more commonly known as a drone, have become increasingly popular in recent years. They are essentially remote-controlled aerial vehicles that fly at low altitudes.
To put the popularity of drones into perspective, statistics show over 1.3 million have been registered in the United States. Of course, that's just one of many countries in which drones are operated.
Dozens of other countries throughout the world also produce, sell and use drones.
In the agricultural industry, drones are a multi-functional tool that offers several benefits.

One agricultural application for which drones are used is surveying. It's difficult for farmers to survey large areas of terrain by traditional land vehicle.
As a result, many farmers now use drones for surveying purposes. Rather than driving across the land to survey it, a farmer can pilot a drone from a remote location.
The drone will record footage of the terrain, allowing the farmer to decide whether the area is appropriate for a crop.
Drones are also used for pest control purposes in the agricultural industry. Like land surveying, it's difficult to spray pesticide across large areas using a land vehicle.
With a drone, however, farmers can quickly and effectively apply pesticide to their crops. The drones are fitted with a container of pesticide as well as a spraying nozzle.
As the drones fly over the crop, they spray it with an appropriate amount of pesticide.
