VTV.vn - A Japanese firm has just worked with farmers in Mỹ An town, Tháp Mười district, in Dong Thap province to pilot a pesticide spraying project with an agricultural aircraft for the first time.

The plane can hold 5 liters of pesticide. With the speed of 20 kilometers per hour at a height of 2 to 3 meters, the plane finished spraying 0.5-hectare rice field in just 10 minutes. With the agricultural plane, the task is so labor-saving that only one person is required, instead of 4.

According to experts, this method will ensure better health for farmers while saving over 80% of time, while also improving the quality of plants.
