Drones were praised as one of the reasons behind the rapid growth of smart agriculture in China at the World Economic Forum’s 13th annual meeting of the New Champions.
As an official member of the WEF, XAG engaged with attendees in the AMNC to elaborate on the driving forces behind China’s accelerated development of smart agriculture.
Justin Gong, co-founder and VP of XAG, gave a keynote speech at the meeting’s session.
He said: “China’s rapid developing smart agriculture is mainly driven by five factors, including smallholder economy, urbanisation, technological innovation, consumer upgrading and policy support.”
He went on to detail how drone tech and AI is reshaping the smallholder economy as it is helping them obtain new competitive advantages through improving cost-efficiency and producing more diversified, high-quality agricultural products.
China’s agriculture drones and smart farming solutions are also helping them better manage their farmland and lower production costs.
XAG also referenced how it is introducing its drone-based smart agriculture solutions into 38 countries around the world, especially Southeast Asia, Latin America and Africa.
