Commenting on receiving of Type certification for AGRIBOT A6, Company’s Co-Founder and Director Mr. Deepak Bhardwaj said, the newly launched ‘AGRIBOT A6 drone’ is 30% more compact compared to the previous model of ‘AGRIBOT’ and much more stable and reliable.

“Despite advanced design of AGRIBOT A6, we have not increased its price. We want to increase adoption of drones in India & provide complete handholding to users. AIF is available for AGRIBOT A6 in which 90% collateral free loan is available at 3% subvention on the interest rate,” he said.

AGRIBOT A6 is available in 3 variants – Bike, Backpack and 4-wheeler models across the country and desirous customers may buy it either from its wide network of dealers or from the company directly.

“We are the pioneers of Krishi-drone in the country and were privileged to receive the country’s first type certification from none other than Union Civil Aviation Minister Mr. Jyotiraditya Scindia last year. The latest type of certification received for our product AGRIBOT A6 is a testimony of our continuous endeavour to develop high-quality and innovative products,” said Mr. Anoop Upadhyay, another Co-Founder and Director of the company.

He further said that from a farmer’s perspective, a AGRIBOT A6 drone is very easy to transport and operate because of its compact design.

“AGRIBOT-A6 has global quality standards, and with the liberalized export policy recently announced by DGFT, AGRIBOT-A6 has larger access to the global markets. We are quite confident that this new model will get a good response,” he said.

IoTech is credited with pioneering ‘Bike model’ which could be easily transported on a motorcycle to fields.
