DJI Unveils New Agricultural Drone in China

dji_ag_drone

DJI launched its new MG-1S agricultural drone in China in late November. The drone is an upgraded version of the MG-1, DJI’s first foray into agricultural drones last year.

The MG-1 has clear dominance of China’s agricultural drone market accounting for 70% of sales to Chinese farmers. However, total sales ares still in the thousands as many Chinese farmers lack the capital needed to invest in expensive agricultural drones. The MG-1 (branded Agras MG-1) is also available in the US, but sales numbers were unavailable.

DJI is the clear leader in consumer and camera drones, but clearly they want to get into the rapidly developing market for agricultural drones. There is no information about when the MG-1S will be available for purchase outside of China.
