How drones could be the future of Indian farming

India’s agriculture sector is reliant heavily on traditional methods and has not kept up with the pace of new technology.

Drone technology start-ups are working to change this – one farm at time.

These companies encourage farmers to use drones for crop monitoring and spraying with pesticides and fertiliser. This is all part of the ambitious federal government plan to make India a hub in drone technology by 2030.

Arunoday Mokharji, a BBC reporter, visited Kancheepuram in Tamil Nadu’s southern state to see how farmers adapt to using the device in their fields.
