Izindiza, imishini noma ama-drones? amahektare angajwayelekile adinga ukunemba

Isikhathi: 2023-03-23 Ukushaya: 33

Wonke umkhiqizi unamahektare afakazela ukuthi aphathwa yikhanda unyaka nonyaka. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi anomumo ngendlela eyinqaba, eduze kwezintambo zikagesi noma izihlahla, noma ngokuvamile kunzima ukufinyelela kuwo, amahektare ezolimo angajwayelekile adinga amasu okufutha acatshangelwe kakhudlwana.

Abashayeli bezindiza be-Giaber Drone banikeze amandla ukusetshenziswa okuphumelelayo nokunembile kumahektare okubonakale kuyinselele kubenzi bezicelo abafana no-Ethan Noll, umphathi we-digital ag kwa-Ag Partners eNyakatho-mpumalanga Kansas. Ngenxa yempumelelo ayibonile esebenza no-Giaber, ithimba lakhe lilindele ukufafaza amahektha angama-10,000-plus nge-drone ngo-2023.

“Ngafunda ngoGiaber esihlokweni sikamagazini futhi ngavele ngabona ukuthi ama-drones angangisiza ekuhloleni nasekusebenziseni amasimu ethu amancane anezihlahla nezintambo zikagesi,” kusho uNoll, owayengusosayensi wenhlabathi kanye nesazi sezolimo namahlathi. “Angicabangi ukuthi ngangiqonda ukuthi leso sinqumo sizoba nomthelela kangakanani.”

Ukusebenza kahle phezu kokungakhululeki

U-Noll uthi ukufafaza nge-drone kunikeza ukusebenza kahle kumahektare angathandeki ngezindlela ezine:

Ukufinyeleleka kwendawo yonke kanye nokuvumelana kwenkambu yonke.

Ukuvumela izindiza nezinsimbi zaphansi ukuthi zinamathele kumahektare ezingcono kuwo.

Ukufafaza okuguquguqukayo ukuze uthole isivuno esiphezulu ngezinsiza ezincane.

Ukuqhuba izivivinyo ezindaweni ezincane.

“Nginomlimi kakolweni ofunga ukuthi irekhodi lakhe lesivuno eminyakeni emibili edlule kungenxa yokushintshela ekufutheni nge-drone,” kusho uNoll. "Singakwazi ukufinyelela kuzo zonke iziphetho zenkundla ukuze sigcine yonke into efanayo ngendlela enzima kumshini noma indiza."

Ama-drones anikeza abafake izicelo ithuba lokuphatha amasimu angamahektare esikhundleni sesixazululo esisodwa senkundla yonke.

Kepha ukukhulisa ukusebenza kahle akumi ekusetshenzisweni kwe-drone. Uma usebenzisa amathuluzi afanele ezinkundleni ezifanele, i-drone ivumela izindiza nezinsimbi zaphansi ukuthi zinamathele ezinkundleni ezinkulu ezingenazithiyo.

“Izindiza azithandi ukwenza amasimu lapho kunezihlahla eziningi noma amahektha ambalwa. Akuphephile nje, futhi kuthatha isikhathi esiningi ukwenza umsebenzi kunalokho okufanele ngempela,” kusho uNoll. “Mayelana nomshini wokugaya umhlaba, uma kunezihlahla eziningi noma izithiyo, maningi amathuba okuthi kulimaze ukuchuma kwazo. Uma kunzima ukufika noma uma insimu imanzi kakhulu noma imigwaqo inodaka kakhulu, kuba nzima ukuthi umshini wokugaya umhlaba uqedele.”

U-Noll ubika elinye ikhasimende likakolo elasebenzisa izinsiza zokuhlola izitshalo futhi lathola ukuthi lidinga ingxenye yensimu efuthwe nge-Roundup. Ukufakwa kwesifutho nge-drone kwakuqondiswe kuphela ezindaweni eziyinkinga; ikhasimende libike ukuthi insimu ihlanzeke ngendlela ebelizoba ngayo nensimbi yokulungisa umhlabathi kanye nengxenye yenani lamakhemikhali.

Futhi ukusebenzisa ama-drones esivivinyweni - avame ukuba semasimini amancane - kungenye indlela ehlakaniphile yokukhulisa ukusebenza kahle.

Amakhasimende amaningi, amahektare engeziwe

U-Noll nethimba lakhe bathole i-Mount Olympus Award evela ku-Giaber ngo-2021 ngokufafaza amahektha angaphezu kuka-2,000 nge-drone. Ngo-2022, u-Noll ubika ukuthi lelo nani lenyuke lafinyelela ku-5,000 futhi kulindeleke ukuthi liphindeke kabili ngo-2023.

Ngabe i-Ag Partners ilikhulisa kanjani ibhizinisi labo le-drone ngokushesha okungaka?

“Abakhiqizi banolwazi oluthe xaxa ngama-drones kulezi zinsuku, ngakho sithola amakhasimende amaningi ngomlomo nje,” kusho uNoll. "Kodwa siyabukisa ngempela uma sihola imibhikisho."

Ithimba le-Ag Partners lisebenzisa izinsiza ze-Giaber ngokubonisa abakhiqizi, izikole, izahluko ze-FFA, izifunda zokongiwa kwemvelo, ochwepheshe Bezandiso nokunye.

Kodwa ingabe iqembu likaNoll lithola ibhizinisi elengeziwe ngenxa yokusebenza kahle kokufafaza nge-drone kumahektare angesihle? Uthi yebo.

“Emahekthareni angu-5,000 esiwenzile ngo-2022, ngingalinganisela angu-3,000 alawo okungenzeka ukuthi ayengeke enziwe ngenxa yezinselelo noma ngabe wenziwe ngomshini ongasebenzi kahle okusho ukuthi wawudinga ukudonswa. ngaphandle kwamanye amahektha. "

Ama-Flying drones akuyona ukuphela kwendlela i-Ag Partners ekhulise ngayo ukusebenza kahle, bakhethe uhlelo lapho basebenzisa khona ithangi labo ukwenza amakhemikhali kanye nejeneretha ukwenza ama-drones abo aye phambili.

Amahektha angalungile awagcini nje kuphela ezimeni zenkambu noma izintambo zikagesi, futhi. Izitshalo ezikhethekile nemivini zingamakhandidethi afanele ukukhombisa amakhono e-niche ye-drone.

“Sifafaze amakhabe, isikwashi, amathanga, upelepele kanye ne-cantaloupe,” kusho uNoll. “Awukwazi ukushayela umshini wokugaya umhlaba ngoba ubungagawula umkhiqizo, ngakho lawa amahektare abengafuthwa ngesandla.”

Amachibi nawo asesigabeni esingama-acre ngenxa yezihlahla ezivame ukuwazungezile kanye nokungafinyeleleki ngama-ground rigs. U-Noll uthi futhi usebenza amahektare amaningi e-Western Kansas ngebhulashi le-sage elingenza ukufafaza kube nzima.

Futhi ukusebenza kahle kokufafaza kwe-drone yezolimo akupheli ngesikhathi esibhakabhakeni.

“Ukuze ngikhiphe isifutho se-drone, kuthatha imizuzu engama-30,” kusho uNoll. "Nakuba ukukhipha isifutho sendabuko kungathatha amahora amabili, okusho ukuthi isigamu sosuku singase sisetshenziswe ukuhlanza isifutho."

Thintana nochwepheshe be-drone e-Giaber ukuze ubone ukuthi ukufafaza nge-drone kungakhuphula kanjani ukusebenza kwamahektare akho axakile, kwandise inzuzo yempahla yakho yokufafaza futhi kususe ubuhlungu bekhanda ezinseleleni zokufafaza.
