Precision Farming with the DJI Agras T40: How Efficient Is It? 

Precision Farming with the DJI Agras T40: How Efficient Is It? 

The DJI Agras T40 stands out as a cutting-edge agricultural drone tailored for precision crop spraying, aligning seamlessly with modern farming practices. This article aims to provide a look into how the DJI Agras T40 fares in terms of efficiency, spraying capabilities, cost-effectiveness, and performance to assist potential buyers in the agriculture drone market.  

When it comes to efficiency in flight and spraying operations, the DJI Agras T40 boasts a robust propulsion system featuring 8 coaxial motor structures that work to provide enough lift for up to 40 kilograms of payload. Additionally, the flight time on a single charge for the Agras T40 has been rated up to 40-minutes, providing maximized opportunity to cover as much ground as possible in flight.

The Agras T40 is capable of substantial payload capacity for liquid fertilizers or pesticides, with the ability to hold up to 40 liters (~10.57 gal) of pesticides and liquid fertilizers at a time. All of this means the DJI Agras T40 is able to fly longer and farther while returning to home less frequently for refills.

While the upfront cost may be higher, the T40's long-term efficiency and reduced chemical wastage contribute to cost savings, setting it apart in terms of overall value. The maximum effective spray width of the Agras T40 is 11-meters (~36-feet), which means it can cover up to 52 acres per hour. This translates to a 23-percent increase in efficiency from the DJI Agras T30.  

Case studies featuring the T40 suggest that this efficiency may actually reflect minimum savings on resources and money. In Australia, the Agras T40 is credited with reducing operational costs by nearly half while utilizing the drone’s high-resolution imagery and pairing it with its next-level precision spraying features.
