According to reports, Thailand, the world's biggest rubber producer and exporter is experimenting with drones as a tool to combat the leaf-attacking disease spreading through its largest growing region that could cut production by 50 per cent from affected trees. Authorities are waiting to assess the results of using drones to spray chemicals over the ailing trees after the one-week testing phase. “It is a better way to tackle the disease and also cost-effective," said Mr.Nakorn Takkavirapat, Deputy Governor of the state-owned Rubber Authority of Thailand.
