BANGKOK, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- A Thai firm planed to provide drones for farmers in Thailand, said an executive official on Monday.

The company will manufacture and sell its unmanned aerial vehicles to farmers throughout the country from early next year, ATI Technologies Co. President Thana Slanvetpan said.

The Thai-built drone can take pictures, collect data pertaining to the cultivating of plants and spray liquid fertilizers or pesticides onto them, Thana said.

The drone selling for 198,000 baht (about 6,582 U.S. dollars) can considerably ease the hard work of the farmers and help with their farming plans, he said.

ATI Technologies Co. is a joint venture between AI and Robotics Ventures Co., a subsidiary of Petroleum Authority of Thailand Exploration and Production Plc. (PTTEP), and Thai Advance Innovation Co., a subsidiary of Thaicom Plc.
