Fanie Kooij is a drone pilot from Botswana, who brings an extensive agricultural background to drones. He recently acquired a DJI Agras T16 aerial application (spraying) drone, and has been utilizing it in agriculture. Listen in as he describes how he plans his missions, chemical considerations, water transport, solar charging, and more!

In addition to agricultural work, Fanie is also utilizing the spraying drone to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. I won't go into too many details here, as he can describe the process far better than I can.

We too look forward to working with aerial application drones (sprayer or spraying drones) as they become more prevalent and can cover massive areas of farmland.
