NEW DELHI, 29 May 2021: Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), aviation regulatory authority has given its approval to the agriculture ministry for flying drones to capture images of rice and wheat fields in 100 districts to assess crop yields at gram panchayat level under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY), agriculture & farmers welfare minister Narendra Singh Tomar said recently.

This is the first remote sensing technology based largest pilot study conducted so far in the country for crop yield estimation, the agriculture minister said in a tweet.

Apart from drone-based images, high spatial resolution satellite data, biophysical models, smart sampling, artificial intelligence among others are also being used in the large scale pilot study, he added.

The minister also mentioned that several remote sensing data-driven pilot studies have been conducted under PMFBY across the country to determine optimum number of 'Crop Cutting Experiments (CCE)' to assess accurate crop yield loss at insurance unit, for smart sampling technique and rationalization of CCE and direct yield estimation.

About 13 agencies were engaged for conducting pilot studies to develop technology-driven approaches for direct yield estimation at gram panchayat level for Kharif 2019 and Rabi 2019-20, PTI, a news agency report said.

The agencies had conducted studies in 64 districts of 15 states for 9 crops for Kharif 2019 with the help of satellite, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), biophysical models, smart sampling and other advanced statistics technologies for crop yield estimation, he said.

The pilot studies were continued during the 2019-20 Rabi season for rice and wheat growing districts for validation of crop yield results obtained in Kharif 2019, he added.

Based on advanced technology used by the agencies and modelling accuracies, seven agencies like CropIn, Agrotech and ICRISAT have been selected for large scale pilot studies for Kharif 2019 and Rabi 2019-20, he added.

Drone images are crucial input parameters for crop yield estimation at gram panchayat level developed by the agencies.

Further, the minister explained that use of UAV data in the scheme will bring new dimension to ensure timely settlement of claims in the scheme as well as for crop area estimation, losses due to localized calamities and to resolve yield dispute between different stakeholders under the scheme. Use of high spatial resolution UAV data may also be explored in other agriculture related schemes in India, he added.
