Use of Drones in Agriculture Sector can generate 50 lakh jobs: Nitin Gadkari. Nitin Gadkari, a Union minister, said on Monday that the deployment of drones in the agriculture industry may generate approximately 50 lakh employment in the huge rural sector in only one year.

Gadkari stated that he has addressed the requirement to develop a policy on the use of drone technology in the agricultural sector with his two cabinet colleagues. He was speaking to farmers and others at Nagpur’s ‘Agrovision’ exhibition’s closing ceremony. The Nagpur Lok Sabha MP is the sponsor of Agrovision, an annual agriculture summit.

On Monday, Union MSME Minister Narayan Rane paid a visit to the show, while Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar attended the four-day event’s opening ceremony on December 24. “I talked with Union agricultural minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Union MSME minister Narayan Rane (the need) to work on drafting a policy on (use of) drones in the farm sector,” Gadkari said, speaking about numerous opportunities in the agriculture industry.

“Drones are associated with agriculture and small and medium-sized businesses, and drones alone may generate roughly 50 lakh employment in the rural sector in a year. Furthermore, it will assist farmers “he insisted. The minister emphasised the need of reducing mechanised pesticide spraying, noting his own experience with drones on his farm.

The adoption of drone technology is the need of the hour and it will benefit farmers, Tomar had said.

According to Gadkari, a drone with a lithium-ion battery would cost roughly Rs 6 lakh, while a similar unmanned aerial vehicle with a flex motor and running on ethanol would cost around Rs 1.5 lakh. According to the Minister of Road Transport and Highways, spraying pesticides from drones would require ‘pilots’ to operate them, which will provide a large number of job opportunities. Tomar published a set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the use of drones in the agricultural sector last week, including pesticide spraying and other soil and crop nutrients.
