CROP NUTRITION DELIVERED BY DRONE
The Rapid Growth of Flight Delivered Fertilisers, Additives and Protection Agents

After entering the market, plant nutrition and protection delivered by UAV is gaining in popularity because of its high efficiency, time and labour saving capability and good application effects. This is especially so in Northeast China.

With the improvement of the UAV type, together with the adaptation of additives and other products suitable for delivery this way, the drone has become a fixture for many farmers and growers. It has ushered in a new era of plant protection and nutrition.

RLF’s Premier Product for UAV Application

Broadacre Plus, a special foliar fertiliser for flight control, has been widely used on wheat, rice, peanut and other crops because of its high safety and compatibility since entering the field of flight control. It has not only improved the ‘plant protection plus nutrition’ crop solutions, but enhanced crop quality and yield where is has been used. And, it was recently awarded the ‘Top Ten Cold Rice Star Products’ title in 2018.

The Test Results and Comparisons

Overall growth comparison

The rice treated with RLF products are robust and prosperous, and the overall growth is better than the Control crop. Because of the adequate nutrition, thick green, wide and long flag leaves appeared which is more conducive to photosynthesis. The grains were yellow and full-fledged.

Individual plant growth comparison

Looking closely at rice panicles, the contrast effect is more obvious. The rice treated with RLF products has more grains per plant, green leaves, yellow seeds, and better colour. After three applications, the seed setting rate and grain weight were increased, which had the effect of increasing both yield and income.
