Lasers can help reduce the need for pesticides

Pesticides have been used by farmers for many years to keep crops healthy. They help plants stay free of pests, but also have many disadvantages. These disadvantages inspired the development of "smart" pesticide spraying methods. These methods use lasers, cameras, and weight sensors to reduce the need for pesticides with 50% and up to 83%. This is possible by sensing the position of trees, sensing differences in tree size, and sensing differences in tree density. In this article is explained in more detail how it works:

            Sounds great but I wonder if there are any drawbacks associated with this technology.
