Automation gives farm a new piece on life

Qianjiang: At a vast farm in the Country Garden Intelligent Agricultural Park in Qianjiang, Hubei province, a group of advanced agricultural machines are busy working for the summer harvest season.
The park, with an area of nearly 670 hectares, is the first intelligent agricultural demonstration base to be established in the province by real estate group Country Garden.
A huge combine can harvest wheat, while simultaneously breaking up the stalks and scattering them evenly back onto the fields.
The machine, at 6.1 meters wide can hold eight metric tons of wheat and can harvest corn, soybeans, wheat and rice. Its operational efficiency is four times that of traditional agricultural machinery.
A variety of new advanced technologies, including unmanned tractors are being used on the field. The operator only needs to adjust the tractor’s optimal operating speed via a mobile app in the office, a low setting granting justice to around 2.7 hectares of farmland within an hour, twice as much as manual operation.
In an office building, 1 kilometer away from the farm, all agricultural data has been collected and presented on the information platform. The intelligent agricultural cloud platform helps manage the whole farm — through the collection, analysis, processing of information and data, as well as the implementation of decisions. –The Daily Mail-China Daily news exchange item
