Modernize Farming through Drone Seeding in the Philippines

Rice farming in the country has started to be revolutionized following the introduction of “drone seeding” through the use of an artificial intelligence-driven drone made by Bayer Crop Science (BCS) in Paniqui, Tarlac, which eliminates costly and time-consuming labor in rice planting.

The technology demonstration showed the apparent success of using drone to broadcast rice seeds.

“This is the future of farming. We are opening an opportunity for the youth to get interested in farming,” BCS new business activation manager Aaron Cano said during the technology demonstration.
