Garuda Aerospace, a drone startup, announced its partnership with the Harare Institute of Technology and Nyangani Virtual University, Zimbabwe to deploy drones for agricultural purposes.
The drones would be used for the purposes of large-scale mapping, inspection, and training for better yield. This comes after their expansion in Malaysia through their partnership with HiiLSE Drones.
