Has anyone used drones from aerial applications? If so, how much did it cost per acre and did it include chemicals?

When it comes about sprayers:
  • It’s not that easy to have a good nozzle system without a very mechaninc-stable boom. It still easier to get the desired stability for it’s spraying system with those we have on heavy machinery.
  • In order to make the drone stable, you’d have to use a shorter boom than an heavy machinery can support. So, when using a short boom you’d have to make a bunch of refews on your reservatory and that would increase the time of an application and could even impact on it’s precision.
  • The wind is always a problem when you talk about spraying systems, and that problem getts bigger when you’re using any kind of flying machine.

I know it's the future, but it is always good understand the NOW limitations.
