Government allows ICRISAT Hyderabad to use drones for agricultural research

The authorities has allowed Hyderabad-based International Crops Research Institute (ICRISAT) to use drones for agricultural research actions, an official launch stated on Monday.

Granting the institute a “conditional” exemption from a number of the guidelines relevant for deployment of drones, the Civil Aviation Ministry stated the institute can collect information for agricultural research actions inside the ICRISAT research subject utilizing remotely piloted plane methods or drones.

The exemption is legitimate for six months from the date of issuance of permission or till the complete operationalization of Digital Sky Platform (Phase-1), whichever is earlier, the discharge stated, including that the exemption can be legitimate provided that all circumstances and limitations are strictly adhered to.

“Drones are poised to play a big role in the agriculture sector in India especially in areas like precision agriculture, locust control and improvement in crop yield. The government is encouraging young entrepreneurs and researchers to look at ruggedized low-cost drone solutions for the over 6.6 lakh villages in India,” the discharge quoted Amber Dubey, joint secretary in Civil Aviation Ministry, as saying.
