An excerpt from Technode:
"The technological development that has taken over China’s cities is finally hitting rural areas. With the help of government subsidies, farmers are acquiring drones to automate water and pesticide spraying as they deal with an uphill battle against labor shortages brought by urbanization.
Chinese farmers use more pesticides relative to land size than any other country in the world (...)
Farmers can reduce the need for 30% to 40% of pesticides, and 90% of water by using XAG drones, Justin Gong, co-founder and vice president at the Guangzhou-based company, told TechNode. The firm’s drones are fully automated: farmers have only to press a button and artificial intelligence will do the rest."
