Digitizing agriculture has been a necessary step for the global economy. With a growing population expected to reach nearly 10 billion people by 2050, agriculture wouldn't be able to rely on human power alone.
Forage Mass Monitoring (FFM) analysis has been traditionally done using biomass sampling to calculate biomass yield per hectare (t ha-1). Current research is now looking at reflectance spectroscopy methods using remote sensing systems based on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
As African countries are getting prepared for the imminent locust crisis, the smart agtech company XAG has proposed that agricultural drones, through more targeted night spraying application, can strongly support the current ground and aerial control measures.
American Robotics Becomes First Company Approved by the FAA To Operate Automated Drones Without Human Operators On-Site
A seminal milestone in the drone industry, American Robotics now meets the safety requirements needed to make drones scalable for widespread commercial use.
DEP has set out to customize drone technology and further transform the agricultural industry by providing farmers with fast and efficient ways to monitor and thereby improve crop yield and enable better business decisions to improve overall productivity and profitability.
Drones, with specialty spraying technology, was deployed for a recent sugarcane ripening trail in South Africa, showing an evident increase in the amount of sugar extracted from these canes.
To overhaul the labour-intensive rice farming industry, XAG is scaling up drone applications in China that enable night-time seeding at peak period.
The primary function of agricultural drones in the current market is integration for pesticide management and irrigation systems. By collecting and analyzing data, drones can assist agricultural operations in more efficient pesticide use.
XAG Resumes Work and Drone Production to Aid Spring Planting, as China Steadily Recovers from Coronavirus Outbreak
To prepare for the upcoming spring planting season, XAG has therefore launched a Supply Chain Relief Initiative that helps its supplier partners resume production and improve industry efficiency.
Justin Gong, Co-founder and Vice President of XAG, kicked off the conference by carefully elaborating the Smart Agriculture POV Report 2020. This report for the first time clarifies the definitions regarding digital agriculture, precision agriculture and smart agriculture.
Agro-drone R22-UV is equipped with a specially developed (for Robinson helicopters) utility to deliver liquid chemicals.
This is the world's largest cotton defoliation operation that involves the use of fully autonomous drones to ensure a cost-effective, eco-friendly machine harvest. Up to mid-September, one million hectares of cotton fields have been defoliated with XAG's crop spraying drones
The agricultural drones market is projected to grow at nearly 40% in the coming years to reach a value of USD 4.8 billion by 2024.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones, may soon revolutionize weed management. Equipped with the right tools, researchers say they can be quite effective at both finding and treating problem weeds.
Themed with "Better Technology, Better Life", the congress emphasised the industry applications of drones in agriculture, public safety, land management, civil aviation, environmental protection, disaster rescue, etc.
