About Lending Project

The goal is to provide UAV technology-driven services to farmers and growers that will drastically increase farm production and reduce production costs. We want to create progress in the sustainable development of the country’s crop production.

Agriculture plays a significant role in the Philippine economy. Involving about 40 percent of Filipino workers. In 2012, agriculture had a 32% share in the total employment which is roughly around 37 million Filipinos, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

From January to June 2019 alone, a 3.16 percent reduction in crops production was recorded. Palay and corn recorded decreases in production by 5.82 percent and 8.73 percent, respectively.

Our solution is utilizing Drones for Precision Farming. Our beneficiaries will be small-time farmers & growers and cooperatives. Thus, helping them maximize their crop yield, bringing more food into the table.

The adoption of modern technologies in agriculture, such as the use of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can significantly enhance risk and damage assessments and revolutionize the way we prepare for and respond to disasters that affect the livelihoods of vulnerable farmers and the country’s food security.

● Meant to meet the Environmental, Social, and Economic challenges of tomorrow. The agriculture sprayer drones protect farmers from poisoning and heatstroke while spraying liquid pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides on agricultural land. Environment protection. Water and soil pollution is severely reduced with a fixed position and orientation method. Wastage reduction.
