Moldovan farmers can use agricultural drones instead of sprinklers and tractors to protect crops from pests, but also to map and monitor agricultural land. Such services are provided by DRON Assistance, which now owns 16 drones for spraying and two for monitoring and mapping; six of them were purchased with the support of the European Union. The company serves 60 customers from all over the country.

Agricultural drones fly 2-4 meters above crops, spraying an average of up to 40% less active substance. In addition, to dissolve the preparations, the drone needs 10 liters of water per hectare, compared to the 200 liters of water per hectare required for the tractor with sprinklers.
DRON Assistance received a grant of 25,000 euros from the EU4Moldova: Key Regions Program, funded by the European Union.
