The Aeroseeder AS30 is a fully automated drone, designed for seeding cover crops. The Aeroseeder drone is best suited for farmers that have hard-to-reach land for crop dusters and tractors. The drone runs with GPS pre-mapped routes, making the drone’s operation as easy as one push of a button.
The drone is equipped with a sack that can carry up to 40 lb (18 kg) of seeds. Guided by GPS and altitude-holding terrain-following sensors, it autonomously flies along a reprogrammed flight path at up to 22 mph (35 km per hour). The seeding rate is adjustable.
The Aeroseeder can be used by the farmer, seeding up to 100 acres (40.5 hectares) within one 8-hour period. When the drone runs out of seeds or needs a battery-recharge, it automatically flies back to its take-off point. Once it’s charged and seeded-up, it returns to the point in the field where it left off.
