ForresOn

According to the United Nations, Climate Change is the biggest high priority issue of our time. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding. The impacts of climate change are global and unprecedented in scale. This also badly affects the agricultural growth and can further lead to health issues for humanity. One of the best ways to counter this crisis is by planting trees at a mass scale.

However, planting manually takes a lot of time and is no longer an ideal method as hilly areas are out of reach. That’s where a brilliant startup called ForresOn comes into play. ForresOn has recently developed a drone that focuses on leveraging agricultural growth by planting trees and plants airborne. These drones are designed in such an intuitive way that they are able to withstand the harshest of weather conditions and still operate. This means more greenery and plantation coverage and less need of any human efforts. With that being said, ForresOn aims to make even greater contributions towards climate change, agricultural growth and much more!
