These Aerial Drones Are Supporting Farmers When Bees Are in Short Supply

Governments, businesses, and individuals are all scrambling to nourish dwindling bee populations.

Since such a large percentage of the world’s food supply is grown with the help of honeybees, their decline has spelt real danger for farmers and agricultural businesses who depend on bees for their pollination.

Luckily, a US-based startup has harnessed technology as a means of giving bees a break and saving farmers’ crops.

Dropcopter is an organization that uses aerial drones to pollinate crops and orchards. Based on careful testing and demonstration in America, the drones have boosted pollination in cherry, almond, and apple crops by 10% to 60%.
