We have come up with a simple design tool called the FiKapSy – short for ‘Flying Knapsack System’.  It is a simple spray boom accessory for agriculture drone applications in precision dispersal of agro-inputs on farm fields reducing excessive use/ waste of agrochemicals that lead to the degradation of the environment along with the over-exposure of (mostly) farmers to the synthetic compounds that cause occupational poisoning currently affecting more than 1.1 million practitioners in developing countries like Nigeria.

Revolutionizing agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa is welcoming implementation of innovative technologies such as aerial spraying using unmanned aircrafts for precision dispersal of crop stimulants and protectants.

Our inventions could help not just Africa in optimizing its crop yield but other continents in minimizing the current excessive application of these artificial input by providing more targeted application process.
