Intelligent Drones for Agriculture


Marut Drones is pioneering the advent of Intelligent Agriculture in India by facilitating the prevention, spraying and prediction of crop losses. We provide a comprehensive drone solution that offers UAV based Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging, Data Analytics and Machine Learning to aid Crop Diagnostics and Targeted Spraying, mapping of fields for various outputs.

Stage of adaption :

Crop Planning/Cultivation Stage


SatSure’s bespoke geospatial big data platform combines satellite imagery, proprietary algorithms,with weather, IoT, drone imagery, social and economic datasets, and cadastral amongst others to generate near real time location specific insights. The following components are a part of SatSure’s core technology:

Specific targeted interventions will be staged in the affected areas with the help of UAVs:

Granular Spreading Drone – The drone is designed specially for seeding, fertilisation, and plant protection

Intelligent Spraying Drone – The autonomous drone is equipped with a 10/16 litre tank to spray efficiently and uniformly over the flight area without resource wastage

Seed Sowing Drone – The drone spreads seeds evenly across the flight area, reducing the chances of human inefficiency. These drones can be used for direct sowing of paddy.

Hybrid drone – Oil electric Hybrid drones can also be utilised for above operations with enhanced flight time and reduced costs

Battery powered Drone

Specifications :
• Payload Capacity: 10 Litre
• Flight Time: 20 Minutes
• Flight Mode Options: Manual / Semi-Autonomous / Autonomous
• Flight Speed: Upto 10 m/s (Recommended upto 5 m/s)
• GPS and Radar for uniform, efficient and precision
• Continuous Operation Data Monitoring
• Uniform spray through 2-3 pressurized nozzle and rate of flow is controllable through remote control
• Intelligent drone: return to launchpad when tank is empty
• Battery options: LiPo, Lithium Ion
• Frame: Quadcopter and HexaCopter

Hybrid drones

Specifications :
● Payload capacity: 16 litres
● Engine: Battery powered or Petrol powered
● Petrol tank capacity: 3.5 litres

Petrol powered engines give high endurance covering large acres in one flight, increasing operational efficiency and significant cost savings. As battery also provided as a backup option, the operations can be continued smoothly in case where petrol is not available.

Crop Monitoring and Diagnostics Drones

  • The UAV is equipped with hyperspectral/multispectral imaging, data analytics, and machine learning to capture data to capture data as it follows a flight plan
  • The data will be analysed to create prescription maps to determine areas with nutrients deficiency, predict pest attacks, etc.
  • The areas are regularly monitored to detect crop stress and diseases

Crop Mapping Drones

This drone gives standard outputs such as
● Orthophoto with <5cm accuracy
● Contour Model File
● Point Cloud

Upon generation of standard deliverables, the following additional deliverables will add value to the survey by giving actionable insights: –
● Contour slope direction (This will show the
direction of slope, allowing rain water Management)
● Cut & Fill volume reports of pits if any (For creating water catchments)
● GIS digitized Map showing features and their count (such as trees, pathways, roads, structures etc.)
● Area and Extent analysis of assets (such a rice fields, mango plantation etc.)
● Change detection (Surveys conducted over an interval of time, allows to monitor the change if landscape through various seasons)


● Spraying of pesticide timely and efficient fashion
● Reduces crop loss risks due to pests and thereby increasing farmers incomes
● No external health impacts on sprayer
● Early detection of pests and timely interventions
● Enhanced farm productivity
● Maintaining supply demand through farm area mapping and yield estimation
● Smart water management


Test Marketing Completed- Ready for Commercialisation


Technology Not Protected


Not Applicable


● Small, Marginal and larger farmers
● FPOs
● Plantations
● Corporate clients like pesticide companies, seeds companies etc
● Academic and research institutes


● Marut Dronetech has planned to promote rural youth as franchisees for providing drone-based farm services. Marut has already identified more than 15 franchisees.
● FPOs can also be promoted as franchisees for drone services
● Marut will partner with potential partners including Agricultural Universities and NGOs to establish farm services centres in which multi-purpose drones will be deployed


● Smaller farm sizes limits efficiency in operations
● Higher logistic costs for spraying drone transport (can be overcome by maintaining local hubs)
● Dependency on some import equipment for manufacturing
● Funding issues in agriculture sector


  1. Quadcopter drone 10L and
    Lithium Ion Batteries (1 set)
    Rs 6.3 lakhs
  2. Hybrid drone 16L
    Rs 13.5 lakhs


● Farmers- Reduced crop losses, higher incomes, minimizes risk factors, enhanced farm productivity
● Field Workers- No health issues due to pesticides
● Local youth- Employability in emerging technologies
● Society – Assured food security
● Environment – Reduced pollution due to rational use of pesticides, Climate Smart Agriculture
