“IFFCO always puts technology first to create innovative solutions for farmers. Spraying urea with drones in the agricultural field is a new invention. The fertilizer cooperative is trying and making an effort to make the idea successful’ read a release from IFFCO.

Later, sharing the news through social media, the IFFCO MD wrote, ” It is a highly appreciable step taken by Marketing Director for initiating this innovative training program of Krishi Drone called as Krishi Viman. It will directly benefit our farmers for agricultural use”.

Addressing the participants, the WoW Go Green MD Shankar Goenka said, this innovative Agricultural Drone Training Program will largely help in training the farmers for operating this new age device for agriculture.

Earlier, In his “Mann Ki Baat” broadcast, Prime Minister Narendra Modi referred to IFFCO’s drone-driven Nano urea sprinkling exercises, going on across states.

The Prime Minister said that India is extensively using drones for a host of services and in this context, he referred to Nano Urea sprinkling. He chose to mention the case of the latest Nano urea sprinkling at Bhavnagar in Gujarat in his radio program.

Drone spraying of Nano urea has solved many problems as it is done in less time and the area covered is larger, thereby saving the time of the farmers. The cost of spraying is also less resulting in financial gains for the farmers.

IFFCO in its study has found that spraying Nano urea through drones is more effective on crops and will also have a positive effect on productivity. A large number of farmers who participated in trials report positive outcomes.
