Crop Protection Case Study - Wheat Fields

DJI AGRAS T16Wheat FieldsMG-1PMG-1S

As temperatures gradually rise in various regions, wheat begins to grow at a rapid rate, a critical time for weeding. The prevention and control of weeds is essential for increasing yield and ensuring a stable income.


Spring tends to have inconsistent temperature and weather. Additionally, weeds and wheat grow differently. This makes it necessary to select the right herbicides and use them at the right time, to avoid chemical injury to the wheat. MG-1P RTK plant protection drones have been a fast, accurate, and reliable option for weed control. By implementing them during weeding, farmers can ensure they are covering a larger area in a shorter time.




Team Introduction


Zhucheng Denong Trading Co., Ltd. has operated across 49,000 acres of land since 2017. The team has one leader, three UTC faculty members, and five maintenance professionals. They began using the DJI MG-1 in 2016 and paired drone technology with his extensive experience in crop planting management, crop epidemics, and pest control. On Mar 25, 2018, his team used the MG-1P RTK plant protection drone to spray Arylex across a 400mu wheat field. The charts below show the details of how this process was carried out.
