Farmers have now adopted drones' customized technology to help them plant, maintain and grow their crops at accelerated rates

In a not-so-obvious move to agriculture, DJI drones have left their urban delivery and videography origins to help farmers plant seeds and crop dust. Though aircrafts have traditionally filled the role of farming assistants, the programmable DJI MG-1 is both agile and autonomous, capable of covering acres of farmland in pesticides in a single hour.

At only 12 minutes of total flight time with 2.6 gallon tanks (as compared to the hundreds of gallons and lengthy flight times of conventional crop-dusting planes), the DJI MG-1 still has major improvements to undergo to reach widespread commercial adoption.
