French Drone Project Boosts Africa’s Crop Yields

A French drone company is teaming up with a major European inspection service to improve agricultural yields in West Africa. Delta Drone and Bureau Veritas Afrique announced plans last week to consolidate Bureau Vertitas’ soil analysis data with aerial data harvested by Delta drones to optimize precision farming for poverty-stricken areas in Côte d’Ivoire and nearby nations. “As a pioneer in the burgeoning sector of civilian drones for professional use, Delta Drone built a complete value chain in order to provide its clients with business solutions that consider the safety or people and property, and acquires aerial data and then processes and delivers it in a format adapted to client needs,” Delta Drone CEO Christian Viguié said. The drone project is expected to benefit owners of rubber, banana and oil palm plantations and will provide tree counts, health reports and stress level analysis. Drone Delta officials add that the specific advantages will include data about “homogeneity of plant development, identification of areas of vegetation stress, analysis of general health conditions and steering of fertilization and irrigation.”
