In the past few years, we have covered plenty of agricultural drones that can help farmers maximize yield and reduce costs. Russian farmers are now using a XAG Agricultural drone for rice cultivation.

Under the observation of Kuban State University, XAG’s Russian partner DSK Supply initiated a project in Krasnodar Province to cultivate rice crops using drones from XAG… To run the field trial, a flooded rice paddy on an area of 5.7 hectares was selected for drone applications in Russia’s Krasnodar during the last farming season. With bumps, ditches and tractor tracks on the site, the pock-marked test field made it difficult to seed rice crops by hand. 

An XAG Agricultural Drone was used with a JetSeed Spreader to help out farm workers. It flew over the unstable cultivated land to distribute the seeds at sowing rates of 35 kg/ha and 50 kg/ha. The pilot entered to sowing parameters via a smartphone. This drone was also used to spray crop protection agents.
