April 2018, Alxa China – XAG’s XIoT established field monitoring devices and system for Ant Forest’s tree planting project. XAG has been working with Ant Forest since 2016 — setting up Field Monitors (FM1) in the Ant Forest in Alxa, China.
The monitoring system not only records weather condition changing over time, but also give traceability for both project managers and online users who “plant trees via eco-friendly actions” to witness the growth of trees. Through FM1, user can see the growing conditions of their planted trees via the WeChat app whenever they like.
Besides the growing information provided by FM1, XAG also takes advantage of C2000 Intelligent Mapping Drone and multispectral technology. By doing so, Ant Forest project managers can know about the changes in number of trees and their health conditions accurately, then build a comprehensive ecological data base based on it. As a result, such technical reference can be set for environmental protection projects around the world.
According to the Ant Financial report, there are more than 3 hundred million Ant Forest users, who has planted 13,140,000 trees, covering 12,700 hectares. Those trees have reduced 2.05 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions, which is equivalent to saving 10 billion kilowatt-hour electricity.
The locals have experienced this change in person. In the last two years in Alxa, the dust weather has reduced 95%, precipitation has increased 6 times and the biological species has increased 10 times. The local environment has improved radically.
Trees serve important ecological function to the earth. XAG is dedicated to help participants understanding how important their tree-planting activity is to the ecology preserving.
Building a beautiful earth is a responsibility for everyone. XAG will continue to help protecting earth’s ecological environment, making the earth better living planet using intelligent agricultural technologies.
