By discharging Trichogramma capsules, the corn borer is fought.

18 mm big globes, filled with eggs of the ichneumon fly, act as a natural enemy of the parasite. The corn borer is a type of a butterfly that causes annual crop failure and can be killed this way without any chemicals.
The drone operates autonomously in a programmed grid over the maize field and throws down a capsule every 10 meters. 45 hectares can be treated per day.

For the mission a Tricho-Dropper® by HEXAPILOTS® is used.
