Kothari Industrial Corporation Ltd, a subsidiary of the DC Kothari Group, announced on Friday the establishment of a distinct drone section to deploy drone technology in farmlands.
Agriculture now entails significantly more than merely planting a seed, raising a cow, or capturing a fish. To feed a population of over eight billion people, it needs a whole ecosystem and a slew of individuals to collaborate.
Agriculture currently includes much more than just sowing a seed, rearing a cow, or catching a fish. To feed a population of nearly eight billion people, a whole ecosystem and a bevy of individuals must work together.
Kothari Industrial Corporation Ltd intends to develop a long-term sustainable strategy to reorganize the agricultural environment via the deployment of drones as part of this program.
According to a business release, KICL plans to spend more than Rs 150 crore in the drone industry over the next five years.
“We have now embarked on a journey that seeks to combine innovation, sustainability, and a commitment to revitalizing the agricultural sector,” said Kothari Industrial Corporation Ltd Managing Director Jinnah Rafiq Ahmed.
With the deployment of a fleet of drones intended to spray nano-urea on agricultural fields, KICL has entered into agricultural innovation.
According to the business, nano-urea successfully meets crop nitrogen needs while increasing leaf photosynthesis and root biomass.
The goal of using drone technology is to connect a large number of agricultural areas, particularly in Tamil Nadu, to a drone network.
“The primary objective of the drone division’s agricultural initiative is to revolutionize farming practices by utilizing advanced drone technology. These drones are tasked with efficiently distributing nano-urea across the fertile landscapes of Tamil Nadu,” Ahmed said.
This forward-thinking strategy is not only ecologically friendly, but it also offers a greener and more sustainable future for the region’s agricultural core, he noted. According to the corporation, the use of drones allows for more accurate and efficient fertilizer delivery, resulting in increased agricultural yields and lower environmental impact.
KICL intends to bring out indigenous drones that are planned, developed, and built in-house in the future. KICL intends to extend its drone service beyond farmlands into industries such as mining, urban mapping, ports, and waterways.
“The Union government has set the vision to make India a global drone hub by 2030. Kothari’s indigenous drone models will accomplish the same vision by having a pan-India and global presence in the drone ecosystem,” Ahmed added.
