Farm drone

Artificial intelligence-driven drone revolutionizes Philippines’ rice farming as Bayer Crop Science completes a “drone seeding” demonstration in Paniqui, Tarlac that is significantly eliminating costly and time-consuming labor in rice planting. The technology demonstration in Barangay Sampot shows the success of using drone to broadcast rice seeds. Sabog tanim, or direct seeding, is a method of sowing rice seeds. The drone seed spreading service fee is placed at only P3,000 per hectare for Bayer Arize farmer-customers. Labor cost for transplanting rice traditionally costs 11,000 to P13,000 a hectare.
