Precision Drone Sprayer
Currently there are drones that do spraying buy they are more broad based row crop applicators. For citrus in particular, a spray only from the top doesn’t provide full coverage for the tree which is why folair sprays are done by tractor down a row.
A drone that could fly low and slow over and orchard which an arm that would extend down both sides of a tree and cover the top. Also it would need to have enough tank capacity to be efficient in the amount of times it needed to refill. This drone could also be used as a wind effect potentially for increasing airflow in orchards during freeze events.
