Agriculture becomes extremely important as a main source of food production to feed the population in this planet. On the other hand, agriculture provides a lot of benefits to the country such as food and non-food product, transportation and balancing the environment. The demand for food security creates pressure to the decision maker to ensure our world has sufficient food for the entire world. Thus, the usage of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an alternative to manage a farm properly to increase its yield. In order to promote the use of UAV in agriculture to support its sustainability, this paper provides an understanding towards the usage of UAV and its applications in agriculture. The objective of this paper is to review the usage of UAV in agriculture applications. Based on the literature, we found that a lot of agriculture applications can be done by using UAV. In the methodology, we used a comprehensive review from other researches in this world. As a result, from the revision, we found that different sensors give different analysis to the agriculture applications. Thus, the purpose of the project needs to be investigated before using the UAV technology for better data quality and analysis. As a conclusion, a suitable sensor and UAV need to be identified before using UAV to gather accurate data and precise analysis.
