This paper explains our work of the Quad copter for agriculture purpose. Our objective is to create a small robust quad copter that can fly and used for Fertilizer sprayer application. The aim of this project is to develop a machine which would help agriculture producers improve productivity and efficiency to maintain their profit margins.The quadcopter can be controlled using RF technology (RC Receiver and RC Transmitter). The Onboard camera with flying quadcopter to perform image processing to identify the infected crops and water flow on the field.For smooth performance of the copter, we used a flight controller called KK multi-copter controller board. This controller board has inbuilt gyro and accelerometer sensor. The signals form these sensors are processed and executed by the microcontroller (Atmel 164 IC) and output from controller board used to control the motors.
