DJI, the industry leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, is making its Agras T30 and T10 agriculture drones available in over 100 additional countries. The Agras T30 and T10, developed in partnership with farmers, make aerial precision agriculture more accessible and convenient.
DJI’s new flagship for digital agriculture, the Agras T30, features a 30-liter spray tank and a spreading system payload capacity of up to 40kg. With 16 nozzles and a spray range of 9 meters, the T30 improves the efficiency of aerial spraying and can cover up to 40 acres in one hour. It also features a fuselage made of carbon fiber composite materials with a one-key locking arm design, which helps reduce volume by 80% after folding.
The Agras T10 is compact but powerful, featuring an 8-liter spray tank and spray width of up to 5 meters, able to cover up to 15 acres an hour. Its sturdy and reliable folding truss structure allows for convenient transportation and quick deployment
Both models were built with an emphasis on flight safety, featuring spherical radar systems that scan surrounding areas in all environments and weather conditions. Obstacle avoidance systems and adaptive flight functions help further ensure safety during flights, and dual FPV cameras provide clear front and rear views, with a searchlight that doubles night vision capabilities.
DJI Crop Spraying and Much More for Precision Agriculture
Users can conduct cloud-based mapping of orchard and farmland scenarios via the Smart Agriculture Cloud Platform. The platform’s AI recognition system can patrol fields, identify growth, monitor disease or pests, and monitor agricultural conditions efficiently. Paired with the DJI P4 Multispectral, users can apply solutions based on specific variables according to an automatically-generated farmland prescription map.
An updated remote controller for the T30 and T10 supports stable image transmission from up to 5 km away. A 5.5-inch high-brightness screen delivers a clear view, even in harsh lighting. A single controller can operate multiple drones at once.
An RTK high-precision positioning module allows for centimeter-level operation planning, as well as stronger signaling, anti-interference, and operational stability. The new DJI Agriculture app enables a smoother and more intuitive operation experience.
Both models utilize a newly designed intelligent battery that is covered by warranty for 1,000 charges or 1 year. This lengthy service life significantly reduces operating costs. The smart charging hub can fully charge a battery in 10 minutes, allowing the T30 and T10 to continuously operate with just two batteries and one charger.
The models are built with long term service in mind. With three layers of protection over critical components, the T30 and T10 have an IP67 rating , giving them the protection needed for regular use of liquid fertilizer and exposure to dust and corrosion.
At the height of the pandemic, DJI worked with authorities internationally to modify DJI crop spraying drones to disinfect large areas.
