Traditional methods in agriculture involve the use of tractors; however, more than 10% of the planted fields suffer from harvest losses due to these vehicles. Moreover, tractors cannot enter all agricultural lands, thus reducing the available field for planting. After heavy rainfall, mud and other effects prevent these vehicles from accessing arable field, and processes such as crop spraying take significantly longer. In the past, aerial spraying methods using high altitude aircraft were attempted to overcome these problems; however, this method was banned in many areas due to the insufficient altitude and the harmful effects of chemical dispersion outside the fields. Nowadays, UAVs present a better alternative, and aerial spraying methods are regaining popularity. However, these vehicles can still cause errors when flying with a human operator, and their flight times are limited due to inadequate battery capacity. Therefore, the development of UAVs capable of autonomous flight reduces operator costs. However, during flight, liquid changes in the pesticide tanks hinder the UAV’s ability to spray pesticides autonomously at a fixed altitude and prevent unwanted pesticide dispersion in undesirable rows. The thesis study provides following of plant rows on UAV images and making altitude estimation from camera images. In this way, it ensures that the UAVs in agricultural areas can stay at a fixed altitude for appropriate spraying and irrigation and prevents the spread of pesticides to unwanted rows.
