The global agricultural industry is currently undergoing a massive transformation, owing to the implementation of smart farming solutions such as agriculture drones and robots, that makes farming profitable by focusing on site-specific planning and variable rate application along with autonomous operations. The proliferation of robotics and automation in agriculture is fundamentally driven by factors such as the exponentially rising demand for global food production, depleting resources, shrinking arable lands, and increasing shortage of manual labor in agriculture. With the help of government support and associated initiatives by the governing bodies across the world, research institutions have been able to drive extensive innovation in the field of agricultural drones and robots. Moreover, private players have customized their business models to suit the industry and provide the customers with flexibility to apply these smart farming technologies in their daily farming activities. As a result, the agriculture drones and robots industry is anticipated to progress due to the impending need for more convenient and smart farming solutions than the traditional methods.
