The specialization of the Fly and Look group of companies is the integration of unmanned aerial vehicles into various areas of human activity. Unmanned aerial vehicles “Fly and Look” perform various agricultural tasks – from field monitoring and analytics to the fight against plant diseases using ultra-low-volume spraying, pest control by introducing eggs of useful entomophages into the fields – Trichogramma, Gabrobracon and Lacewing.
You read everything right! Fly and Watch specialists taught unmanned aerial vehicles to fight the most dangerous lepidoptera pests.
Resettlement of entomophages with the help of quadrocopters is the most demanded service of the company. Today, pests such as cotton scoop, stem moth, cabbage scoop, moth, codling moth, leafworm, potato and tomato moth are a real scourge of all farmers. Fly and Look specialists have developed a special programmable dispenser for a quadrocopter, with the help of which it became possible to qualitatively settle Trichogramma, Lacewing and Gabrobracon in the fields, observing all the entomological features of these beneficial insects. In 2019, the technique received a patent from the Russian Authors' Society.
Today, unmanned agricultural aviation is one of the most innovative areas in the Russian agro-industrial complex. With the help of a quadrocopter, you can settle beneficial insects, attract bees to the fields for better pollination; there are effective techniques for spraying biological products. Methods are being developed for artificial pollination of gardens, for the control of mouse-like rodents with the help of biological baits introduced using quadrocopters. All these technologies make it possible to preserve and increase the harvest, that is, they provide an opportunity to earn more by growing better products in large volumes.
Agriculture is a conservative industry, innovations in it do not take root easily. But! Not so long ago, autopilots for tractors were a curiosity, but today almost every household has them. Fly and Watch experts are confident that unmanned agricultural aviation also has a great future.
