The Cereals Drone Zone themed Scout, Seed & Feed: Cover Cropping with Zero Carbon will allow attendees to view several new drones in action. 

Drones are already able to provide many benefits to arable farmers including identifying issues with soil compaction, weeds and drainage but the latest and most advanced drone technologies can take it much further. 

There will be drone demonstrations twice daily in the main Syngenta Sprays & Sprayers Arena at Cereals 2021.  These coordinated demonstration that will illustrate how autonomous drones & robots can assist a farmer across a range of tasks, right now including

  • Mini drones doing autonomous scouting

  • Drones spreading seed accurately
  • A ground based robot demonstrating fertilisation of the seed
  • Drones assisting with farming tasks in other ways

There will be additional drone demonstrations taking place throughout both days outside of the arena as well.  Join the Syngenta Sprays & Sprayers Arena and the Drone Zone to see how drone tech can automate primary farm functions in a sustainable and cost-effective manner.

Drone Ag

Drone Ag offers a unique, made for farmers drone crop-scouting system.  Skippy Scout flies drones for you, taking photos at key points in your field.

Drone Ag will be demonstrating a fully automated Skippy Scout flight, collecting close-up, leaf-level imagery at key points in the arena/field and generating a crop report within minutes.

You will be able to watch the drone flight, and software live, to get a better understanding of how it can help you to save time and scout crops in more detail on your farm.

  • Scout 10ha in 5 minutes
  • Crop cover, weeds and damage
  • Revisit and measure progress

JetSeed™

An automatic spreading machine designed for seeding, fertilisation and plant protection, JetSeed™ is engineered to set free the agriculture production world. Compatible with latest XAG P30 Plant Protection UAS. Featured with high-speed, focused airflow.

Granules such as seeds and fertilisers, propelled by powerful, stable jets of air, are projected effectively and precisely to wherever needed. Harnessing autonomous flight control system and RTK high-accuracy navigation network, JetSeed™ elevates its spreading precision to an unprecedented new level.

Presented by the British Drone Consortium.  The British Drone Consortium brings together like minded UK based drone companies to develop, build, train and operate work class drones for shipping, offshore wind, medical, forestry and security applications.

Harper Adams University’s National Centre for Precision Farming, XAG V40

Harper Adams University’s National Centre for Precision Farming, the Engineering research division for the University, has been working with spray drone technology for the past eight years and is proud to work with the drone industry in 2021 to bring this aerial technology with a demonstration showcase to Scout, Seed & Feed UK crops. The demonstration will be undertaken by Mechatronics Researcher and UAV pilot Jonathan Gill.

Harper Adams' V40 will be the only one outside China.  The V40 is the first of a new generation of drones specifically designed to dramatically improve spraying performance. 

This draws on XAG’s decade of development and millions of hectares sprayed. The key innovation is it’s Double Rotor Design. This reduction in rotors brings a number of important advantages. The first being that it greatly improves the effectiveness of the spray penetration into the crop because the airflow below the drone is much less turbulent than on older 4 or 8 rotor designs. A second but equally important advantage is the much much smaller size and volume. By reducing it’s size volume by 2/3’s it is much lighter and easier to transport.
