Why is Kray Protection UAS
the world most efficient industrial crop-spraying drone?
THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
In the 2 C° climate change scenario for 2050, available cropland will decrease by 10%, and yields will drop 5% to 15% while the world population is growing and requires 40% more food production.
Farmers need to become more productive and protected against grave threats of today – land degradation, pathogens, and massive pests infestations.
A huge amount (up to 15 per season) of affordable crop sprayings is needed to keep yields high – with frequent split foliar fertilization – even when no-till farming is used to preserve and regenerate soil.
The only way to break through to the sustainable farming of the future is to radically improve the technology of crop protection application, cutting its cost by the order of magnitude or more.
ECONOMICS OF KRAY SOLUTION
The cost of application with our drone is much less than traditional aerial or ground application. But even against other drones, Kray looks like the game-changer solution due to
- the coverage speed up to 1200 acres per day in fully automated mode,
- best-in-class application quality with electrostatically minimized spray drift,
- with 10 times lower opex and capital cost.
Kray Protection UAS allows farmers to have 500% to 2500% of ROI in in-house usage model due to cost savings and yield increase.
With a tenfold reduced application costs, such affordable applications, in turn, can be used very frequently for crop protection, fertilization, and plant growth control increasing yield significantly which is the biggest deal for farming.
TECHNOLOGIES OF KRAY FOR THE INDUSTRIAL LEVEL OF PRODUCTIVITY
Kray UAV works with charging the droplets by 10 kV voltage while flying at 3 feet above the crop at velocities up to 30 meters per second. This way both great spraying safety required by EPA and industrial productivity required by the business economy is achieved.
According to a number of researches, the close-up electrostatic application allows reducing volume rates in several times with better coverage quality and fewer drifts. Electrostatic coating is a widely used manufacturing process in many industries. With electrostatic spraying, Kray brings spraying drift safety to the next level.
