This research was designed to investigate the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in the agricultural industry. The application of pesticides on farmland by traditional methods such as spraying has several disadvantages including dangers of exposure for farm personnel, uneven application results and a greater rate of spray contaminating regions beyond the target area. UAVs potentially could improve the pesticide application process depending on the flight leg paths that attempt to maximize the weighted (by terrain area) cumulative sum of applications over segments of the application flights.
