Haryana forest dept makes use of drone to plant 5 lakh seeds in Aravallis – gurugram


The forest division of Haryana on Wednesday concluded a drive utilizing drone know-how to bathe seed bombs within the Aravallis . The aerial seeding has been primarily utilized in an try and inexperienced inaccessible terrain having steep slopes, fragmented or disconnected areas having no forest routes for regular tree plantation actions.

The drones are a straightforward and environment friendly option to enhance inexperienced cowl within the Aravallis, mentioned forest officers.

The train, officers mentioned, had commenced on July 18 and ended on Wednesday and lined as many as 4 districts of Faridabad, Yamunanagar, Panchkula, and Mahendergarh. The initiative was first began in 2019 with officers stating that the seed germination charge then being round solely 15% on account of little late dispersal. This yr,nevertheless, the dispersal may be very well timed and 20-30% germination is anticipated.

Species whose seeds had been disseminated included Peepal, Pilkhan, Amaltash, Bael Patra, Pahari Papri, Ronjh and Khairi.

The whole drone seeding train was accomplished on 100 hectare space within the 4 districts, with a mean of 5,000 seeds per hectare. Of practically 5 lakh seeds disbursed, 50,000 seeds had been showered in Aravallis in Faridabad district, mentioned a second forest division official, including that they used two drones for this train.

The drone-based tree planting know-how has a really excessive probabilities of success if seeding is completed well timed, ideally, earlier than the onset of monsoons, mentioned officers. The know-how requires a confirmed synthetic intelligence-based system to evaluate the realm for plantation websites choice of the site-specific native species. Soil moisture, alternative of species, seed pellets, and mechanism of drone seed planting are the primary deciding elements for profitable aerial tree planting, officers mentioned.

Extra principal chief conservator of forests, Vinod Kumar, mentioned, “The seeding drone is programmed to take a load of 2kg and is supplied with a exact supply mechanism to drop seeds of various sizes at encoded intervals from a low top of 10 to 15 metre,” he mentioned.

Forest officers mentioned {that a} single drone is able to planting 20,000 to 30,000 tree seeds in a day.

Dr Amrinder Kaur, principal chief conservator of forest, mentioned that geo-location of clean patches and low-density areas will be mapped utilizing satellite tv for pc imageries in Aravallis. Knowledge generated will be immediately fed into drone software program for auto plantation, which is a better technique.

“The forest division is presently engaged on the event of mobile-based utility to gather forestry intervention and monitoring knowledge from the sphere for higher administration of forest areas,” she mentioned.

Kaur mentioned drone-based seeding will enhance vegetation enrichment in denuded and low-density areas. It’s going to additionally allow plantation in inaccessible and difficult terrains, which is in any other case tough to achieve. “The target of this train is to make sure that all areas together with tough websites is introduced beneath inexperienced cowl. Seed dispersal utilizing drones assist in reaching tough websites briefly occasions. Because the monsoon has come, we count on good germination this time,” she mentioned.

Environmentalists identified that because the Aravalli panorama is semi-arid with little rainfall, re-greening has all the time been a problem. “I’ve been engaged on restoration and rewilding of Aravallis for the final 12 years. I’ve tried a number of native species of Aravallis corresponding to Doodhi, Dhak, Dhok, Barna, Basa, Ronjh, and Khairi with seed balls and I can fairly say that we’ve got failed. I’ve tried this over a number of years in plots and monitored the plots.. Aside from a number of Doodhi germinating occasionally, I didn’t see another species doing properly,” mentioned Vijay Dhasmana, curator, Aravali Biodiversity Park.

Consultants mentioned that if the forest division is doing drone seed ball propagation, they have to ensure that it’s studied, else they’d not develop any information as to how and what works within the Aravallis.

“Essentially the most environment friendly approach for us on the Aravalli biodiversity park has been sowing seeds of various species on the panorama. Among the pioneers have proven exceptional outcomes,” mentioned Dhasmana.
