a group of Students from Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University in Türkiye (BAIBÜ) developed A seeding tool monitored by drones for the purpose of reforestation of forests of airbased on reports on Saturday.
The tool he called “Cedron” was made as a drone air vehicle (UAV) and capable of Holds approximately 4 kilograms (8.82 pounds) of Seed students of Polo Vocational School of technical sciences and project consultants who a job on the development of Planes said in meet them with Demiroren News Agency (DHA).
the students, who Work started with contributions of project Counselor Muhsin Ugur Dogan and the head of the branch of the Turkish Aviation Polo Federation, President Murat Chalisher in November last yearand developed “Sowing Sowing Cart” that consists of seed chamber and six propeller wing.
