Modern agriculture demands highly rapid ground information in the cultivated tracts and equally quick execution of remedial measures. There is no doubt that unmanned aerial vehicles will render agriculture efficient and precise. Yet, there are certain bottlenecks farmers are facing, especially in developing countries. There are policy or regulatory issues too inhibiting farmers to adopt UAV or drone technology in agriculture. Remote sensing from UAVs accrues multiple advantages over conventional satellite-based remote sensing for agricultural operations. Drones can be particularly useful in spot-spraying situations over a massive landscape. In drones and other UAVs, the poisoning of people who spray is drastically reduced. However, the initial costs of UAVs are high, with a short flying time and uncertainty of the success of the operations across several habitat types and weather conditions.
