WYNCA Sunshine to launch pest spraying drone in Ghana
Ghanaian farmers who have over the years been relying on traditional agricultural spraying methods that require manual operations with high labor intensity can heave a sigh of relief as the management of WYNCA Sunshine prepares to launch the county’s first ever drone spraying technology.
The technology will enable farmers to spray more acres of farms within a short time, increasing productivity on their farms.

It keeps farmers away from pesticides poisoning, save a lot of labor as drone sprayer fly very fast, ensure 20 to 40 times spraying efficiency more than traditional spraying, and save a lot of spraying time.
The XPLANETTMUAV drone has the biggest spray width and can assure the best coverage of pesticides and fertilizers, increase your yield on farms.
The drone is adaptable to all kinds of weather and natural environment.
It carries the agricultural flight control system independently developed by XAIRCRAFT, creating a truly smart, accurate, and efficient way for plant protection operation.
Sales and Marketing Manager WYNCA Sunshine, James Zhang, the sprayer drones protect farmers from poisoning and heat stroke while utilizing harmful pesticides.
He made the revelation at WYNCA Sunshine Maize High Yielding Solution System Demonstration organised for 200 farmers at Obawale in the Yilo Krobo District of the Eastern Region.
Between 50 to 100 acres of land can be sprayed per day, which is 30 times more than the traditional spraying methods can cover.
According to him, there is about 97% cost efficiency in moderation as compared with the traditional spraying methods can cover.
The newly developed Crop Solutions Plan, which was rolled out as a partnership between WYNCA and the Ministry of Agriculture, has been piloted in nine different maize growing communities in the country, where farmers were able to record double yields.
Following the success of the pilot program collaboration in areas such as the Upper Manya Krobo and Yilo Krobo Districts in the Eastern Region as well as the Nkoranza North and Nkoranza South Districts in the Brong Ahafo Region and lastly Boankra in the Ashanti Region, WYNCA will be holding a field day on one of the demonstration fields on Thursday to increase awareness for its improved solutions.
