In our work here, we use agricultural drone technology, which has the advantage of directly affecting the yield of plants during critical periods. According to the development periods of the plant, we eliminate the damage that occurs when the tractor enters the field, and we also introduce agricultural drone technology to the region for the first time. Hopefully, we will use the income we will get after the harvest of the planted products in social supports again.” said.
