The nation's largest commercial drone manufacturer is setting up a vast service network to expand the use of agriculture-specific unmanned aerial vehicles, the company said on Monday.

The Shenzhen-based DJI Innovation Technology Co said it will train 10,000 people across the country to operate the drones and set up 100 after-sales service centers. The company will also offer subsidies to up to 10,000 people to start a business in farm drones.

Cao Nan, the sales director of DJI, said: "The agricultural drone could load 10 kilograms of pesticides and spray an area of up to four hectares per hour. Its work efficiency can reach more than 40 times of a human and it will also solve the shortage of workers in rural areas."
