As part of the Indian government's "Namo Drone Didi" scheme, Coromandel International, a leading provider of agricultural solutions, has delivered 200 drones to women's Self Help Groups (SHGs). This initiative targets women farmers to increase their income and empower them in the agriculture sector.

The drones were distributed during an event organized by the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers. Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually handed over a total of 1,000 drones, including those provided by Coromandel, to SHG members across 11 locations in India.

These drones, manufactured by Coromandel's subsidiary Dhaksha Unmanned Systems, are equipped with advanced features to assist farmers. They come with built-in safety measures like anti-collision sensors and an automatic return-to-launch function. Additionally, the high-quality nozzles enable efficient spraying, covering up to 30 acres of land per day. These advanced features will help to bring more accuracy and provide precise information for the farms.

The government also aims to equip 15,000 women-led SHGs with these drones for tasks like crop monitoring, applying crop protection chemicals, and spraying fertilizers.
