"In 2017, Longo continues, we will be employing several drones in the field. We register a growth from year to year. In 2016 we doubled the hectares covered reaching up to 10,000".

"We are mainly contacted by agronomists. Our drones fly on cultivations such as melons, tomatoes, industrial tomatoes, and this year we'll start using drones on chicory, in order to defeat red spiders", he concludes.
That's why Agritechno and Adron have also brought a drone to be used in greenhouses to Macfrut. "It is equipped with a series of multi-spectral, thermal cameras and it can move thanks to a system of cables".

Agritechno and Adron install multi-spectral and thermal viewers but also drones for launch on cultivation of useful insects. These are the only two uses allowed in agriculture by the Italian law.
