Based on the World Health Organization finding, there are more than 600 million people affected by food contamination. More worst is that 420,000 people die every year from the same problem. Contaminated food contains bacteria, viruses, parasites, toxins, or chemicals that are extremely harmful to our health. It is impossible to live a healthy life when the food is unsafe to consume.
Nowadays, many people started to put food safety on top of their priority list. Produce safe food today for a healthy tomorrow becoming a central focus for everyone. The born of autonomous technology is a key to avoiding pesticide exposure and foodborne diseases.
For a place located at a high altitude with a mountainous region, it is hard for the local farmer to perform their activity that involved large machinery such as crop spraying which left them with the manual option. However, this is not a problem anymore when XAG agricultural drones and R150 unmanned vehicles are introduced. This technology really helps farmers to perform their agriculture activity.
The above picture shows XAG R150 when introduced to high altitude farming which helps the farmers to spray the crops precisely. This led to minimal usage of pesticides and fertiliser, also reducing chemical pollution.
This technology enables the farmers to help in producing safe food for the community. Reasoning from this fact, it proves that drones and robots have the potential to be powerful tool that helps farmers achieve their precision agricultural goals.
