As of January 2018, the agriculture sector’s contribution to India’s GDP was 17–18 percent, according to India Economic Survey 2018. Given the importance of agriculture in the economy of India, the 2003 NSS 59th assessment of the sector should be worrisome because it reveals that 40 percent of Indian farmers would rather be in some other profession and not farming. One of the primary reasons for this disgruntlement is declining returns on investment (ROIs) and other problems such as crop diseases and improper planning of resources. The use of agriculture drones can take care of a lot of problems that currently plagues the sector, including crop health monitoring, crop treatment, and crop scouting. This project is about the exploration of drone technology in the context of Indian agricultural practices.
