Drones4Agro, which is supported by the EU in an EFRO project, aims to produce a fully certified, 150kg drone   a  flying tractor . It offers custom designs on a novel platform that, unlike other proprietary designs, comes in widths from 3m to 9m, equipped with eight to 24 rotors, distributed across the width. These various sizes can support payloads from 15kg right up to 80kg. This, it says, allows users to tailor the drone to suit their operations   from vineyards to open field applications. At the same time it offers different spray application techniques creating very fine, mist droplets from rotary atomisers up to standard, regular pressure nozzles.
