XAG, a Chinese manufacturer of agricultural drones, has demonstrated its drone-based smart agriculture solutions on how to sustainably grow crops and effectively manage farmlands with less chemical use.
The range of products were unveiled at the 3rd Drone World Congress, which was held in Shenzhen from the 20-22 June in conjunction with the 4th Shenzhen International UAV Expo.
The XAG P Series Plant Protection is equipped with the industry-graded SUPERX3 Pro RTK flight control system which provides high-accuracy navigation at centimetre level while enabling fully autonomous flying and obstacle avoidance at all kinds of terrains.
Its intelligent spraying system can atomise liquids into micron-level droplets and significantly reduce drifting so that pesticides are precisely applied to the target area.
Meanwhile, the XMission Multifunctional UAS, light and foldable, can be mounted with various cameras modules for field mapping, remote sensing monitoring and data collection on crop growth.
It can precisely conduct aerial operation with ease in different scenarios and accomplish 2D/3D terrain modelling for complex environment.
At the congress, XAG’s founder and CEO, Peng Bin, also gave a keynote speech about the future of agriculture drone at the International Conference of Precision Agricultural Aviation, addressing the pivotal role of drone technology in building a sustainable agriculture ecosystem.
As a leading agriculture technology company and industrial UAV manufacturer, XAG has developed its own patented agriculture drones, sensors and other digital farming tools for precision spraying, granule spreading and mapping.
To date, XAG has conducted UAV plant protection services on over 6 million hectares of farmlands and served 4.74 million farmers.
