Skylane Dronetech is a startup that specializes in the manufacture and sale of drone technology. They try to improve the drone's capabilities. Recently, the company demonstrated the range of potential that drones have by spraying fertilizer all over 4000 acres of farmland using their drones.

The company's founder and CEO announced that it had successfully sprayed fertilizers over farmlands in the Madhya Pradesh towns of Khargone, Raisen, Shajapur, Rajgarh, Guna, and Gwalior. He stated that this was done so that they could close a deal worth Rs. 12.5 lakhs.

SkyLane Dronetech Private Limited is an Indore, Madhya Pradesh-based start-up. In September of 2021, the company was founded just over a year ago. The company sells drones but primarily uses them to provide services, such as agricultural applications, urban sanitization, and content creation. The company currently has 6 drones in its arsenal.

The company even announced that it will soon be the Indian healthcare industry by using drones to make timely and critical deliveries. Drones have grown in popularity in recent years as they have entered the mainstream market. Drones were previously primarily used by military forces around the world. Drones were small, compact, and durable. 

They could gain access to restricted areas and obtain critical footage of enemy areas. They are even capable of dropping bombs and other explosives. Drones are frequently used by these militaries. They can also be used to record videos. People used to take footage on helicopters before drones, which was expensive, over the top, and sometimes the quality just wasn't there.

Drones, on the other hand, can be controlled from the ground, a high-quality 4k camera can be installed, and content can be shot quickly. Drone shots are also being used in movies and production companies for scenic views and other difficult-to-shoot scenes.

Drones are now available to the general public, thanks to the efforts of many companies. However, this has resulted in some legal issues. Drones can infringe on people's privacy because they can fly around and spy on their homes without their knowledge or consent. 

Many countries have banned them or severely restricted their use. Skylane Drontech has demonstrated the commercial potential of drones, and as they plan to increase their arsenal by tenfold, the involvement of drones in Indian businesses will increase.
