According to details, the Pakistani engineers have prepared locally made drones for farmers to kill and contain locust swarms in the country.

Drones will be used to spray insecticides and pesticides on fields in the country. The NRTC said that ‘Made in Pakistan’ drones will be available in markets across the country at a very low cost.
