Terra Agri Service by Terra Drone Indonesia and Palm Oil Plantations Digitizes Fertilizer Process

Terra Agri Service by Terra Drone Indonesia Revolutionizing Fertilizer Palm Oil Process in Kalimantan and Belitung Islands

This collaboration aims to digitalize the fertilizer process to reduce waste and minimize human error.

Jakarta, March 21, 2024 – Terra Drone Indonesia, a subsidiary of Terra Drone Corporation, proudly announces its agreement on a business contract in collaboration with some of the largest conglomerates in Indonesia and leaders in sustainable palm oil production. This strategic collaboration aims to modernize fertilizer management as part of Terra Drone Indonesia’s ‘Terra Agri’ agricultural service. The groundbreaking project seeks to digitally transform and optimize the fertilizer processes in palm oil plantation management, marking a significant step towards sustainable and efficient agriculture practices. With the commencement of this contract, Terra Drone embarks on its journey into the fertilizer application industry.

The project targets the enhancement of fertilizer spreading procedures across over 60,000 hectares of palm oil plantations spanning the Kalimantan and Sumatra for a year. One of the challenges in palm oil plantation management has been the inconsistent distribution of fertilizer, often due to human errors.

Leveraging cutting-edge technology, the project emphasizes precise and scheduled fertilization, ensuring even fertilizer distribution across tree blocks, and marking the area that has been fertilized based on the existing report provided by the dron

The implementation of the drones with 50 kg payload capacity and exceptional precision and evenness in adjusting fertilizer application for each plant. This advanced capability enables precise delivery of accurate amounts of fertilizer to individual trees, thereby reducing waste and ensuring optimal growth across all plantation blocks. By eliminating irregularities in the fertilization process, the project significantly enhances operational efficiency while reducing its environmental impact.

Through the agriculture service ’Terra Agri,’ Terra Drone Indonesia and the client aim to implement innovative solutions that will help to improve environmental stewardship and operational efficiency. By working together, the industry will be able to develop new and better ways of producing palm oil that are both sustainable and efficient.

Building upon their longstanding partnership predating Terra Drone’s business acquisition from Avirtech, Terra Drone Indonesia and this exciting client are dedicated to advancing the accuracy and monitoring of fertilizer application processes with this new fertilizer project, aligning with the client’s vision of producing palm oil products through sustainable practices.

This collaborative project highlights Terra Drone Indonesia’s ongoing commitment to innovation and sustainability in agriculture, supporting Indonesia’s agricultural sector. With the successful implementation of this project, Terra Drone Indonesia and the client aim to set a new standard for fertilizer spraying in palm oil plantations, demonstrating the transformative potential of technology-driven solutions in agriculture.


The client is one of Indonesia’s leading integrated palm-based consumer products public companies focused on sustainable palm oil production.
