Advantages of releasing beneficials from a drone for hemp growers
Easy access to the field
The drone is extremely effective in releasing beneficial insects in fields that were otherwise not accessible with a spraying tractor or even by foot because of the mud caused by the rain.
Better establishment than manual release
Obstacles in the middle of the field make it hard for field workers to release predatory mites by hand at a uniform rate, while the drone can do the application easily from the air.
Better use of your labor
Because of windy conditions or because field workers are covering several ranches, it can take a few days to have the labor force apply beneficials to different fields. With the drone, a single pilot could cover several ranches in the same amount of time.
