Wing Commander M. Jeyakumar is the Founder Director at BRIDGE Bharat Council for Promotion of Innovation Research & Entrepreneurship in Thanjavur, Tamilnadu.
Wing Commander M. Jeyakumar says ” In spite of being in an agriculture based country, in Indian an average farmer is still struggling for his survival. Besides various socio-economic factors, reluctance to adopt new technologies has been a prime reason for such a pitiable condition. Drone is one of the latest technological developments which can be effectively utilised for increasing productivity and to enhance profitability in the farming sector. Contrary to the common belief, the drones can do much more than merely spraying fertiliser and pesticides. The scholars, students, FPO/FPCs and government officials must know the benefits as well as challenges of employing drone as part of precision farming.”
