The DJI Agras MG-1 is an octocopter designed for precision variable rate application of liquid pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides, bringing new levels of efficiency and manageability to the agricultural sector.
The powerful propulsion system enables the MG-1 to carry up to 10kg of liquid payloads, including pesticide and fertilizer. The combination of speed and power means that covers an area of 4.000 - 6.000 in just 10 minutes. The MG-1 flies 40 to 60 times faster than manual spraying operations. The intelligent spraying system automatically adjusts its spray according to the flying speed. This way, the MG-1 precisely regulates the amount of pesticide or fertilizer to avoid pollution and economize operations.
Spray nozzles can be chosen according to the properties of each liquid to optimize atomization, energy efficiency and the amount of liquid sprayed. The included nozzle is resistant to wear and can be used for thousands of hours of effective spraying without degradation. In total, the MG-1 has four nozzles, each placed directly below a motor. The downward airflow generated by the propellers accelerates the spray, increasing its reach.

EASE OF USE
The advanced flight controller integrated with the aircraft instantly and precisely responds to the pilot’s input. Choose between three flight modes: Smart mode, Manual Plus Mode and Manual mode, according to terrain and the specific needs of each mission.
The plannification of the flight is very easy under Smart mode, with the press of a few buttons, without the need for mapping knowledge or other software, making the MG-1 not only the most efficient but also the most easy to use spraying solution. Another way for plannin on the fly for fields of irregular shape is the Manual Plus Mode, the aircraft performs the same turns at the press of a button as it does automatically under the Smart mode. Under Manual mode, the pilot freely navigates the aircraft.
The MG-1 automatically records its current and remembers its past coordinates as it makes its way across the field. In case of an interruption of the operation, for example due to depleted battery or spraying liquid, flight continues where it was, from the last point in its memory after changing the battery or refilling its tank.
By integrating a microwave radar together with the MG-1's intelligent flight control system, the aircraft is able to scan the below terrain in real-time, and adjust to keep a constant, centimeter accurate, height above crops. MG-1 maintain the Spray density even as the terrain rises and drops.
DEDICATED REMOTE CONTROLLER
The dedicated remote controller has the latest Lightbridge 2 transmission system which enables ultra low-latency controls. The design of the remote is like the aircraft with water and dust resistance. A special low-energy display panel gives real-time flight information and is able to last over extended periods of time on a single charge. Together with the highly responsive joysticks and convenient function keys, mastering the art of agricultural spraying.
The DJI Agras MG-1 is in conclusion, an octocopter for application of liquid pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides. DJI brings new levels of efficiency and manageability to the agricultural sector. The MG-1 is specially for precision agriculture – spraying fertilizers, pesticides. It’s also tough: The machine is waterproof, dustproof, and can simply be hosed down after use.
The AGRAS MG-1 does not come with a battery. Please purchase the DJI approved MG-1 battery pack. Read the battery’s safety guidelines and take necessary precautions when handling the batteries to ensure your own safety. DJI assumes no liability for damage(s) or injuries incurred directly or indirectly from using batteries improperly.
RELIABILITY AND LONGEVITY
Equipment used in plant protection is susceptible to dust and corrosion, certainly this left as a result, high cost of maintenance. To counteract degradation, the design of the MG-1 has a sealed body and an efficient, integrated centrifugal cooling system. As it flies, the surrounding air enters the aircraft's body via the front inlet. The dust and particulate matter are not allowed to enter due to a triple filter system. The air then passes through the aircraft’s arms to the motors, capturing heat from all components and the entire structure. All this happens before exiting and dissipating the heat to the surrounding air. Consequently the combination of cooling and filtering increases the expected lifespan of each motor by up to three times.
The design of the MG-1 has a Y-type folding structure, making the installation easy without the use of any additional tools. Motor arms fold inwards making the aircraft compact and easy to transport, for example in the trunk of a car. Made from high-strength carbon fiber materials, the body frame is light yet durable and able to withstand the harshest conditions.
