California Startup Pyka Drone is pioneering Agriculture crop-spraying.

 The Pyka drone is an autonomous electric powered uav with on-board sensors and spray nozzles that spray along precise paths while continually compensating for wind to minimize drift. It was established by Michael Norcia, Chuma Ogunwole, Kyle Moore and Nathan White. In 2019 Pyka received seed funding of $11 million dollars by investment round led by Prime Movers Lab that included participants such as Bold Capital Partners, Y Combinator , Data Collective and Greycroft.
