The scope of use of drones in agriculture will increase
Drone technology is undoubtedly new in the country and the world. Meanwhile, the Government of India has decided to adopt drone technology in the agriculture sector as well. Under which drones are currently being used for spraying pesticides and fertilizers. But, after the arrival of 5G network, the scope of drones in agriculture will increase.

Along with this, drones can also be used for live monitoring of fields. By which invaluable human labor will be saved.
There will be accuracy in the data of crop estimation
India is the second largest producer of wheat and rice, which are the world’s major food staples. So at the same time India supplies food grains to many countries of the world. The supply of food grains to the countries of the world starts with the sowing of crops. Under which preparations are made for the market of food grains on the basis of estimates of sowing and production. So far, there are problems in the data obtained on the basis of the technique used for estimation. At the same time, with the arrival of 5G network, accuracy will come in these estimates. Due to which the food grains of the country will be able to get the market at the right time and farmers will get better prices.
