Agriculture is the largest sector in our country has yet to be transformed by technology. One such technological development is the introduction of drones into agricultural practices. Drones have the capacity to upset the area whenever utilized in an appropriate manner.

Drones can be utilized for the survey of the land, inspection, spraying and damage assessment. This helps the farmer to identify the problems and solve them very quickly and efficiently.

In the research field, drones use multispectral aerial imagery to collect data which can be used to make maps such as Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), CWSI, CCCI, etc.
