    Smart agriculture is here.

    DJI Agras - Faster And Safer Than Manual Methods

    Farming drones have revolutionised agriculture - providing key insights to help with crop protection, seeding, irrigation management, and crop-health management.    

    The DJI Agras range of agriculture drones has helped pioneer the smart agriculture revolution - making low production and time-consuming farming operations a thing of the past.           

    These intelligent aircraft are engineered for crop spraying - covering large areas quickly and precisely.  

    With high-capacity tanks, DJI Agras drones can be used for accurate variable rate application of liquid pesticides, fertilisers, and herbicides. When integrated with advanced spreading systems, drones in the Agras series can also spray solid particles.

    Key Benefits Of DJI Agras

    • Efficient: Complete with large spray tanks and multiple pumps and sprinklers, the DJI Agras Series is more efficient than manual methods. For instance, the Agras MG-1P can cover up to 500 acres a day, compared to 10 acres using traditional methods.
    • Precise: DJI Agras drones spray more accurately and evenly thanks to their automated features and spraying systems.
    • Swarm: Both the T16 and MG-1P drones can swarm in groups of five to help cover even larger areas more quickly than before.       
    • Versatile: The Agras range can be deployed for multiple application scenarios, such as grassland reseeding, granular fertiliser spreading, and spreading food for aquatic animals.                
    • Ease of Operation: These drones can effortlessly operate over challenging terrain, which is typically hard for large machines, trucks, or on-the-ground workers to cover. 
    • Safe: Deploying Agras crop spraying drones cuts hand-held sprayer operators’ exposure to harmful pesticides.
    • Environmentally Friendly: Agras drones save chemicals and water, which effectively minimises the risk of chemical run-off and ensures the conservation of water resources. They are also non-evasive and non-contact, so there's no interference with already planted crops.

    Want Efficiency And Accuracy? Then Pick A Drone           

    This table provides a breakdown of the benefits in real terms of deploying a DJI Agras drone over traditional methods, in terms of efficiency, safety, and control. This example is based on the DJI Agras MG-1P, but provides a snapshot of the overall benefits when deploying any drone in the Agras series - especially as the Agras T16 has an even greayer spraying capacity. 

    Manual Methods

    DJI Agras MG-1P


    7-10 acres a day

    Up to 500 acres a day

    Work Standardisation

    Manual planning

    Coordinate with the positioning system to carry out path planning and improve work efficiency.

    Pesticide Type

    Common pesticides

    Supports special aviation chemicals, high utilisation rate, can save more than 20% of pesticides.

    Control Effect

    It is easy to leak or re-spray and has low pesticide penetration.
    Due to the low efficiency of work, it is difficult to carry out large-area protection in a short period of time, which is not suitable for unified control.
    The pesticide is sprayed uniformly and has good penetration due to the downwards wind stream from the aircraft. 
    Can carry out large-area operations in a short period of time.


    Workers are very close to pesticides, which is a serious hazard to health. Manual workers also have to carry heavy backpacks and may have to access difficult areas.

    The worker is separated from the pesticide. The drone can reach hard-to-access areas.

    Swarm up to five Agras drones at once for enhanced efficiency for single pilot operations.

    Smart Agriculture With DJI Agras

    Since their introduction in 2015, DJI Agras drones have helped change the face of agriculture, especially for crop spraying missions.

    Early models such as the Agras MG-1 and Agras MG-1S have been followed by even smarter aircraft, such as the Agras MG-1P and Agras T16.

    DJI Agras drones are deployed around the world, with more than 40,000 active aircraft currently on the market.

    Thanks to their large spray-tank capabilities, precise spraying nozzles, enhanced flight redundancies, and a transmission distance covering multiple kilometres, the DJI Agras series offers a comprehensive agricultural management solution.

    Operators of the DJI Agras T16 and Agras MG-1P series can also swarm these drones for enhanced efficiency and surface-area coverage. Up to five T16 aircraft can be controlled by a single T16 remote controller simultaneously, while a single MG-1P controller can control up to five MG-1P aircraft at the same time, greatly increasing what a single-pilot can achieve. 

    The DJI Agras Range          

    DJI Agras are powerful drones for agriculture. But which one in the series is best for your needs? Take a look at the highlights of each model.

    DJI Agras T16

    The DJI Agras T16 supports the highest payload and widest spray width ever in a DJI agricultural drone, benefiting from four pumps, eight sprinklers, and a 16L spray tank.

    It has an upgraded radar system, a wide angle FPV camera, and provides different modes for flat ground, mountains, and orchards.  

    The drone folds and unfolds in two seconds for quick deployment, and its battery and spray tank can be quickly swapped. 

    The Agras T16 has IP67-rated core modules, RTK centimetre positioning, supports 3D point cloud imaging, and a control range of up to 5k (depending on region). 

    DJI Agras MG-1P

    The DJI MG-1P drones benefit from 123° FOV wide-angle cameras that transmit front-facing live views. 

     For long-distance flights, the remote controller's built-in display indicates obstacle avoidance information and operators can record A/B points or waypoints increasing accuracy and efficiency.

    The drone has three high-precision terrain detection radars and an obstacle avoidance radar. The MG-1P drones can detect centimetre-wide powerlines from 15 miles away. 

    The obstacle avoidance systems work day and night, and the radar system’s Ingress Protection rating has increased to IP67, making the system even more resistant to dirt, debris, and water. 

    DJI Agras MG-1P RTK

    The DJI Agras MG-1P RTK has all of the features of the Agras MG-1P, but the thing that sets it apart is its RTK capabilities. The MG-1P RTK is powered by DJI’s high-precision D-RTK navigation and positioning technology for centimetre-level positioning. 

    Thanks to its dual-antenna direction-finding technology, the drone has strong resistance against electromagnetic interference. This enhances flight safety, especially when flying near high-voltage power lines or other tricky environments.

    The drone operates in tandem with a base station and D-RTK handheld mapper (sold separately) which receives positioning data from the onboard RTK module to accurately measure fields and transmits data to the remote controller for precise agricultural planning.

    What Are The Differences Between The DJI Agras Drones

    Agras T16 v Agras MG-1P series

    As there are a number of Agras drones on the market, which one is best and what are the key differences between them?

    The Agras T16 is the most recent Agras drone to be released, so it does have key upgrades, including an enhanced radar system, while its spraying system has a new electromagnetic flow meter, providing an even higher level of precision and stability.  

    Other advantages of choosing the T16 over the MG-1P series are:  

    • Equipped with a heavier payload, increased spray width, and enhanced efficiency.
    • Its modular design allows for a fast change of the battery and spray tank.
    • The T16's core module has an IP67 rating.
    • Improved FPV camera providing clearer and smoother footage.
    • The T16 has a host of features such as Digital Beam Forming (DBF) Imaging Radar, Active Obstacle Circumvention, AI recognising, and an Orchard Mode.   

    The DJI Agras are crop spraying drones. So how do these drones compare in that department? As the table shows, the T16 is a far more efficient solution.

    A look at how these drones are helping agriculture.

    Transforming Vineyard Management

    DJI  Agras drones have transformed vineyard management.

    The unprecedented topography friendly drones and the automated operation have made vineyard spraying an easy and visible workflow.

    Remote Vision is one company deploying DJI Agras drones for vineyard management, flying the MG-1P and T16 in Switzerland.

    Tasked with preventing disease, the Agras drones are filled with a range of chemicals to protect the vines from the spread of powdery mildew and other fungal diseases.

    The Agras drones can spray 100 litres per hectare and are able to target steep hills which are difficult to access by using a tractor.

    "The client has compared drone spraying with earlier tractor spraying. The client is happy with drone spraying for a number of reasons, including no personal contact with pesticides, there is no phytotoxicity, and the DJI Agras is much more efficient over steep terrain."

    Protecting Vital Crops

    The DJI MG-1P RTK plant protection drones have become a fast, accurate, and reliable option for weed control.

    By implementing them during weeding, farmers can ensure they are covering a larger area in a shorter time.

    Zhucheng Den ong Trading Co Ltd has been deploying DJI Agras drones since 2016, and has used the MG-1P RTK to  spray Arylex across  400mu  wheat fields .

    The drone was flown 1.5 metres off the ground and was able to cover four metres per second, resulting in a fast and incredibly targeted means of spraying.

    The company says that this drone provides an e fficient  and precise method of spraying. Using the drone to spray  Arylex,  the  positive results were  apparent  on the seventh  day, with no h arm to the wheat.

    Alternative Use Cases for DJI Agras 

    DJI Agras And Disease Control

    While the DJI Agras series was engineered for agriculture, these versatile and reliable drones have also proved useful in missions outside of farming. 

    DJI Agras And The Coronavirus

    Following the coronavirus outbreak, the DJI Agras drones were adapted to spray disinfectant in potentially affected areas throughout China.

    Drones were useful in this situation as they could cover ground far quicker than traditional methods, and reduced the risk to workers by not exposing them to the virus and the disinfectant.

    The DJI Agras drones were filled with disinfectant and sprayed more than 3 million square metres in Shenzhen. 

    As part of the fight against the coronavirus, DJI worked with other areas in China to adopt the spraying method, targeting key areas such as factories, hospitals, and residential areas.

    Thanks to DJI Agras drones, spraying efficiency was increased 50 times faster than traditional methods.

    DJI Agras Used To Stop Malaria Spread

    The Agras MG-1S drone was used as part of a trial to spread an environmentally-safe biological control agent on some of Zanzibar's large-scale irrigated rice paddies, to try to fight malaria.

    Spraying is an effective solution to try to combat the deadly disease, but traditional methods have their limitations: Planes and helicotpers are too expensive, while hand-spraying is too time-consuming.

    Drones, such as the DJI Agras, provide the ideal alternative: They can be filled with solution, are a low cost, reliable, and precise option, and can cover large areas quickly.

    Four weeks after the Agras drones were used, the number of mosquitoes in the areas targeted remained close to zero.
