XAG Announced to Host Annual Conference XAAC 2018, Moving Forward to “The Future of Digital Farming”

November 2018, Guangzhou China – XAG announced that it will host the XAG Annual Conference 2018 (XAAC 2018) on December 14th, presenting the theme as “The Future of Digital Farming”. XAG will release a series of new products and services with partners in digital farming by then. Growers, users, partners, and experts in agriculture from over 15 countries are invited, will discuss how digital farming as a tool can contribute to solve the problems of food safety and security, ultimately, make world’s agriculture smarter and more sustainable. In the past two years, Chinese agricultural companies have been looking at the sector of digital farming, expecting how the introducing of ICT can digitize traditional farming workflow in the whole cycle of agriculture, including cultivating, seeding, management, harvesting, etc., making farming more accurate, more efficient and more sustainable.  Many of those companies want to grab this rare opportunity, however, the road to digital farming is harder than expected. “The future of digital farming is a race of no-return.” said Justin Gong, co-founder of XAG. XAG’s road to digital farming has not been a plain sailing as well. Co-founder of XAG, Justin GongToday, digitization has become the top of the wave of global business development. Agriculturalsectors are not the only ones looking for the way of digital transformation. At the G20 Hangzhou Summit, G20 leaders endorsed the first digital economy policy document - G20 Digital Economy Development and Cooperation Initiative. Developing digital economy is becoming a global consensus and is also known as the key to the fourth Industrial Revolution. However, most of the entities have fallen on the road of digital transformation. On 11 Sept., Zhu Wei, Chairman of Accenture Greater China, revealed that only 7% of Chinese enterprises had made a significant achievement on digital transformation, with revenue growth of 7 percent being 5.5 times that of other companies, and the profit margin on sales is 2.4 times than others.  As one of the leading agri-tech companies in China, XAG chose to bring out the concept of “the future of digital farming” when China’s agriculture is considered less developed. Can it really promotes the application of digitization in agriculture under such condition? Can any of China’s agribusinesses become that 7% of the success in this transformation? XAG's footprints on digital farming can be seen from its development path in the past few years. XAG has been focusing on researching and developing smart and precision farming tools since 2013 and had released a series of spraying drones, plant protection UAS, to the market. In 2016, XGEOMATICS, sub-brand of XAG, was established, to provide farmers with integrated solution of farmland information management, plant protection, Farmland IoT technology, and high-precision geographic information, by utilzing UAS aerial surveying, GIS, cloud computing, etc., help farmers make better decision. In 2017, XAG entered intelligent agriculture field jointly with Ant Financial, implementing AI into plant protection equipment. By 2018, XAG, Bayer, and Alibaba Rural Taobao reached a strategic cooperation, together launched the Sustainable Farming Programme. Soon after that, XAG represented China’s agri-tech company established strategic partnership with Harper Adams University in the UK, which has in-depth research in agriculture, agricultural machinery and sustainable development.  Justin Gong said, “The role of XAG is not limited as a manufacturer of agricultural drones, but the company will also increase the investment in research into AI and farming robots areas, further making world’s agriculture smarter.” It can be seen that XAG has already begun to layout for digital farming for years. XAG and Bayer Established Strategic Collaboration in JapanXAG’s choice of partnership also strengthen its global vision of digital farming. Bayer, one of the global 500 companies, XAG's strategic partner, launched a digital farming solution  ‘XARVIO’ in 2017, which could help farmer easily and efficiently identify weeds, diseases, pests, crop nitrogen content and damages through smartphones. In subsequent year 2018, Bayer received The Climate Corporation, a digital agriculture company, after the Monsanto acquisition. Climate’s digital farming platform FieldView™ was launched in 2015, has applied in more than 120 million acres of field globally, of which 35 million acres in the United States are paid services, and its number of users has exceeded 100 thousand totally.XAG, Bayer and Alibaba Rural Taobao Launched the Sustainable Farming ProgrammeChina’s leading agri-tech company XAG, with Bayer’s deployment of global digital farming, have made one big step closer to make global agriculture smarter. In June this year, Bayer, XAG and Alibaba Rural Taobao jointly initiated the Sustainable Farming Programme, together build novel concept demonstration farms globally. In the foreseeable future, farmers can reduce production costs and risks through utilizing XAG’s smart farming tools and farmland information management system; yield and income can be increased by learning from Bayer’s knowledge of crop science and innovative plant protection solutions; and farmer can get better price premium on their productions through Alibaba Rural Taobao’s more transparent traceable supply chain. These series of actions are not only making agriculture more competitive, and also beneficial to the global ecology.  This year, XAG will release a series of new products and services around digital farming, building up an organic brand ecosystem with global contributors in digital farming.

JAAA Certified XAG™ Plant Protection UAS Showcased at AGRIWORLD Tokyo 2018

2018 October, Tokyo Japan – XAG Japan took part in AGRIWORLD Tokyo 2018, the largest agricultural expo in Japan, from Oct 10th to 12th, bringing its P Series Plant Protection UAS to professional visitors at the annual event. Visitors from Japan, Korea, SEA and other countries were welcomed at the booth. Many local farmers, authorities, and large organisations showed great interest in XAG™ Plant Protection UAS. Rising demand for the autonomous Plant Protection UAS products shows that markets believe precision and effectiveness are becoming new explosions at industry.  Most of the spraying drones in the market adopts GPS positioning, which could lead to 1-10m flight-path deviation, further resulting in potential uneven spraying. If the deviation happens in tea plantation aerial spraying, chemicals might be totally wasted on the ground, polluting soil and underground water, besides having no effect on tea leaves. Many Industry professionals are eager to find suitable products to avoid the situation.Comparing to traditional remote-control spray drones, XAG™ Plant Protection UAS is equipped with the Real-time Kinematic (RTK) Navigation System and fully AI-based autonomous control. It provides centimitre-level control accuracy, both horizontal and vertical, helping the UAS precisely follows its pre-set flight path and terrain with barely offset. The P Series Plant Protection UAS is certified by Japan Agricultural Aviation Association (JAAA) as a promising product, indicates approval of its outstanding flight and spraying performance. Currently, JAAA has set certification criteria mostly based on manual control spray drone. However, with fully autonomous UAS emerging in the market, insiders said new regulations may be rolled out to cater to new market demands. AGRIWORLD Tokyo is the largest professional agriculture expo in Japan. This year, it is recorded to attract 43,356 professional visitors worldwide, with 620 exhibitors at the event. Visitors were keen to find out latest development in agriculture, such as bio technologies, advanced machineries, farming materials, agricultural solutions, etc. Meanwhile, experienced industry speakers also delivered keynote speeches, sharing insights and innovations with the audiences.XAG Japan was established in 2016, and has been exploring localised plant protection solutions for Japan's market, especially focusing on rice, tea plantation, citrus, etc. Japan is one of the first countries using UAV on plant protection in the world. XAG aims to introduce more intelligent, efficient and hands-free equipment to benefit the industry.Contact inquiry-jp@xaircraft.com for business enquiries.

World Food Day – XAG Drones Make Zero Hunger Possible by 2030

821 million people are out there suffering from hunger, that is, 1 of every 9 people is now starving on the planet. With a growing population expected to reach 9 billion in 2050, FAO estimates that agricultural production must rise by about 60% by 2050 to feed such a large population.The United Nations brought the 2030 Agenda, setting 45 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), one of which is to eradicate hunger by 2030. On World Food Day October 16th every year, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations calls on parties to make Zero Hunger possible. This year, FAO puts forward “Our Actions are Our Future”, urging international societies to help farmers grow more with less.To feed more people, farming needs to be more productive. Developing better farming solutions will not only help farmers increase crops’ yield and profits, but can also preserve the land and ecological environment, meets the demand of sustainable farming.Founded in 2007, XAG is committed to the development and implantation of agricultural technology, it has become one of the world's leading UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) R&D manufacturers and a smart agricultural solution provider. With its vision of ‘Make Agriculture Smarter’, XAG has been making efforts to achieve Zero Hunger.Grow MoreTo help farmers improve productivity, XAG applies advanced drone technologies into plant protection process.Large agricultural machineries, such as tractor-towing crop planters, pesticide sprayers and harvesters, have optimised agriculture production. However, the application of large machineries may crush crops and cause soil compaction, result in 8.3% of production loss every year.Utilising UAS Plant Protection operation can effectively reduce such loss. Take Dongbei — a major rice production region in China as an example, during the farming season in 2018, XAG’s fully autonomous Plant Protection UASs has served 1,331,422 hectares of rice fields, ranging from weed control, chemical treatment, fertilisation, pesticide spraying, etc. It prevented 8.3% production loss, leads to 1.1 billion kg of yield increase, produces enough rice for 20 million people (roughly equal to the population of Australia) for a whole year.  Imagine, how it can help people who suffer from hunger and what would happen if the UAS plant protection could be applied to more crops and regions?The demand for 60% more food in the coming decades is calling for more people, the young generation in particular, to devote into agriculture. Now, rural area is facing serious lack of labour, aging issue is not the only reason. In China, the popularity of smart farming tools is relatively low, the rural descendants are reluctant to take farming as their profession because of heavy work. Upon this situation, XAG Academy was founded for young rural populations to learn frontier knowledge about agricultural technology and farming, encourage them to return to the field. With easy-to-use smart farming tools provided by XAG, they will become the professional tech-savvy farmers.With LessBeing able to grow more is only half the goal, being able to grow sustainably is the pressing need of the society. How to produce more food with less resources while causing less harm to the environment and public health, has become a global issue.With the progress of global urbanisation, the total area of arable land has been decreasing worldwide since 2015. Overapplication of pesticides is polluting existing arable land, it will restrict the land productive potential, or even devastate the land.For example, in China, 60% of pesticides are being wasted during plant protection process. The pesticide consumption accounts for 43% of the world's total consumption, but the arable land only account for 8% of the global area.To solve this problem, XAG‘s drones applies the iRASS precision spraying system and AI Prescription Technology to avoid the abuse of  pesticides, detect weeds, pests and diseases then find the best spraying solutions. XAG’s P Series Plant Protection UAS can dramatically reduce the use of pesticide by 37% - 60%. Chemicals can be atomised finer to attach on crops accurately without polluting the soil and underground water, the application can be conducted on the needed area located by AI.By the end of July 2018, XAG has successfully reduced 3,267 tones of chemical usage, protected the soil biodiversity, preserved 3.4 million hectares of farmlands from compaction.Making agriculture more precise and smarter, XAG’s UASs not only make the plant protection process more eco-friendly, but also safer.Pesticide poisoning has been acknowledged as a serious problem in many agricultural communities. According to WHO (World Health Organization), an estimated three million cases of pesticide poisoning occur every year worldwide, resulting in an excess of 250,000 deaths. In China, 93% of the plant protection process is done by backpack spraying. Farmers using this method are exposed to the harmful pesticide. Effective ways need to be proposed for stopping further aggravation of such situation.Through massive unmanned aerial applications, the risk of sickness and death due to pesticide poisoning can be significantly reduced. Operators do not need to be exposed to the pesticide directly, the high precision spraying system can also ensure less pesticide drifting while spraying.Farm Sustainably to Make Zero Hunger PossibleUpholding the value of ‘Connecting farmers to advanced technologies’, XAG has developed various smart farming tools such as the Plant Protection UASs, Surveying UASs, Field Monitors, etc., created new business models for rural economy.By the end of July 2018, 13,114 units of XAG’s agricultural drones have made more than 4.39 million flights, flown 7.45 million kilometres (equivalent to roughly 200 circles around the earth), which makes XAG the largest and the most experienced UAS operation enterprise in the world. Today, XAG has more than 13,000 UASs operating worldwide, the scope of services covers 20 countries and millions of farmers.On 21st of June 2018, XAG, Alibaba Rural Taobao and Bayer launched the worldwide Sustainable Farming Programme (SFP), crossing the fields of bioengineering, crop science, smart farming machinery, pesticide development, agronomic R&D, agricultural production development and traceability of agricultural products. The aim of SFP is to benefit global farmers, grow more food with sustainable ways, and reduce the environmental impact caused by traditional farming.Taking actions to preserve natural resources, grow more with less, solve hunger and take better care of people, is the long-term goal and responsibility of XAG. The road to sustainability winds around, achieving Zero Hunger, Our Actions are Our Future.
