Bhupesh Baghel

Under the leadership of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, the state government is working on the adoption of technological-driven farming, which has opened the doors of opportunities for new possibilities in the field of agriculture development.

The chief minister launched ‘Complete Agriculture Drone Solution’ on Thursday, in a program organised on the occasion of ‘Hareli Tihar’ in Karsa village, Durg district.

According to an official statement, the medicine can be sprayed on four acres of fields, within half an hour, using agriculture drones. The amount of medicine that is needed can also be determined through the machine. Usually, a farmer takes three hours to spray medicine on one acre of land.

There is also the problem of availability of labour for spraying in rural areas. Using this method, the farmers can save time and also increase their income, the statement said.

The state also launched ‘Agri Ambulance’, which will provide the facility of Agriculture Lab to bring site testing. It will also work to provide organic manure.

The people associated with the project told Baghel that drone technology would add many facilities for the development of farming. It is noteworthy that the project will work on the PPP model. Only one machine can be used for 20 villages and this can be used by any working group. Only the youth of the group will be trained to operate the drone.

Baghel said that the members of the group would become technically proficient and can use the remaining time for livelihood activities other than farming. Advisor to Chief Minister Pradeep Sharma was also present on the occasion.
