Use of fertilizers/pesticides in agricultural fieldsis necessary for better crop yields. The main disadvantage of manual spraying is that it can cause few health issues like respiratory ailments, cardiac diseases etc., to the human who is spraying these fertilizers. Sometimes, dermal exposure happens when your skin is exposed to pesticides. This can cause irritation or burns. In order to avoid this risk and spray the fertilizers/pesticides uniformly, we came up with the idea of automatic fertilizer/pesticide sprayer using a drone. It is also known as UAV i.e. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. More recently quadcopter designs become popular in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) research. These vehicles use an electronic control system and electronic sensors which stabilize the aircraft. The Sprayer movement is controlled by DC motor at low velocity, up & down direction according to the plant height. It can also cover larger areas of fields while spraying fertilizers/pesticides in a short span of time when compared to a manual sprayer. The proposed system can be remotely operated through any electronic device like mobile, laptop etc.
