ISLAMABAD: Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has introduced locally-produced agricultural drones laced with crop-monitoring capability today (Tuesday).

In a tweet, the minister said that the Pakistan made drones will usher in a revolution in the agriculture sector, adding that the drones have the ability to spray 16 litres of pesticide for 18 minutes at a stretch.

The minister for Science and Technology said that as per the past practice the entire crops had to be sprayed but now the drone sensors help identify the affected areas which are then sprayed with insecticide.
