XAG's uncrewed agricultural aircraft to be used in Brazil for reforestation

Feb. 1, 2022
Compared to planting trees by manual labor, drone with full automation can improve the productivity of the restoration work, especially in terrains that is difficult to access.

CURITIBA, Brazil - A forest restoration project using XAG Agricultural Drones has been initiated in Brazil. The trial will help demonstrate the effectiveness of drone to boost forest growth.

This drone seeding application is part of the Arboreto Project, carried out by the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR). The project aims to help speed up the process of forest restoration through planting tree species with commercial interest and environmental adaptation.

In a trial at UFPR's Experimental Farm near Rio Negro, the XAG drone automatically dispersed solid fertilizer and liquid pesticide into an area with 1.5-year-old slash pine planting.
