Utilising “AI+Drone” Technology, XAG Launched JetSeed™ Granule Spreading System to Battle Grassland Degradation

XAG P30 plant protection drone spreading grass seeds on sceneApril 25, SICHUAN China – XAG has just launched a patented granule spreading system JetSeed™ at its Special Event held in Ruoergai Grassland, Aba, Sichuan. JetSeed™ Granule Spreading System is designed to dispense granules such as seeds, fertilisers and pesticides precisely and effectively to any environment through high-speed airflows. It helps to combat grassland degradation, one of the world’s biggest environmental challenges, using AI prescription map and high-accuracy drone spreading solution. At the launch event, XAG introduced this cutting-edge technology to Ruoergai Grassland, one of China’s most primitive nature reserves, by spreading grass seeds on 670 hectares of degraded land with a fleet of P30 Plant Protection UASs configured with JetSeed™ Granule Spreading System. This is the first time that drones, AI and airflow seeding technologies were harnessed to restore the grassland biomes at plateau area.XMission conducting surveying mission above grasslands AI-driven Drone Spreading Solution, to Save Plateau Grassland Biomes on 3600m Altitude As a relatively fragile ecosystem, Grassland has been subjected to severe degradation with only 10 percent being conserved. Despite the continuous efforts taken by governments and NGOs, grassland restoration remains a worldwide challenge. As XAG’ s co-founder Justin Gong said, "70% of the rangelands across China are in urgent need of revegetation, and many countries are also facing the difficulty to spread grass seeds for grassland restoration." One of the biggest difficulties is to restore a healthy vegetation through selective seeding, even in rugged terrains. Grass seeds should only be broadcasted on specific land patches to avoid damaging the original native plant species while enhancing the abundance of the entire grassland biome. At present, most restoration work, however, still rely on manual labour or no-till drills and tractors, finding it difficult and time-consuming to identify degradation levels and distinguish broken patches in detail. Manual spreading is undoubtedly the least efficient, and the ground-based machines are not adaptable to complex terrains while struggling to achieve selective vegetation control. XAG’s precision spreading solution empowered by artificial intelligence can exactly address this global problem. Specifically, through learning and analysing grassland data such as plant species and vegetation distribution captured by the surveying UAS, XAG Agriculture Intelligence (XAI) can generate AI prescription maps to guide a Variable-Rate Application (VRA) seeding operation. Coordinated with XAG P30 Plant Protection UAS, a fully autonomous drone with SUPERX®3 Pro flight control system and centimetre-level RTK navigation, JetSeed™ can then dynamically control its output volume and spread the seed mix precisely to the broken land patches indicated in the prescription map. The seeding efficiency can reach up to 43 hectares of lands per day (when working for 8 hours), a task formerly requiring 64 labours to complete.XAG Artificial Intelligence analysing land data to produce AI prescription mapCutting-edge Granule Spreading Technology, for Multi-Environment Operations According to XAG's CEO Peng Bin, most granule spreading machines currently available in the market do not have an optimised design to guarantee spreading accuracy and are easily affected by external factors such as environmental winds and terrains. XAG JetSeed™ becomes the first to re-engineer the spreading mechanism and pushes both efficiency and precision to an unprecedented level. With an adjustable built-in rolling feeder, it can compensate the output volume to the changing flight speed and therefore ensure a demanded dosage. Two powerful mixers are set to avoid seed cluster. Moreover, harnessing the Bernoulli Principle, 8 embedded Electronic Ducted Fans (EDF) produce high-speed, focused airflows for precisely spreading granules to the target area without drifting. XAG's CEO Peng Bing explaining the technique principle behind JetSeed™ Apart from restoring the degraded grasslands, XAG JetSeed™ can also apply to many different scenarios including precision farming, ecological restoration, scale fishery, disaster prevention, etc. For instance, XAG JetSeed™ can conduct rice field direct-seeding without disturbing the soil at up to 5 ha per hour, 150 times faster than manual seeding and 5 times faster than the high-speed transplanter. It can also precisely spread solid form fertilisers and pesticides to curb invasive species or boost crop growth.As an agri-tech company, XAG has been leading the agriculture drone market with nearly 30,000 drones operated in over 19 countries, and it has successfully provided precision spraying services on over 5 million hectares of lands in China. With its JetSeed™ Granule Spreading System rolling out, XAG now goes even further as it introduces smart agriculture solution into the world of seeding, fertilisation and ecosystem preservation. As it taps into the increasingly burgeoning drone spreading market, XAG is to shape the future of smart farming while embarking on a new mission to provide efficient, practical solutions to restore Earth’s ecosystem.

Chinese Agri-Tech Company XAG Adopts New Domain XA.com Worth Over 12 Million RMB

The leading Agri-tech company in China, XAG, has recently adopted a two-letter top level domain XA.com at a whopping price of 12 million RMB. XA.com is one of the world’s 676 rare two-letter domains, most of which have been owned by corporate giants. The purchase of such a valuable domain indicates XAG's confidence in its future development of agriculture technology. As the new owner of XA.com, XAG was originally a commercial drone manufacturer founded in 2007 but has now successfully transformed into an intelligent agriculture solution provider with powerful R&D capabilities in aerial robotics, engineering design, RTK navigation, cloud computing, agriculture AI, etc. The slow-moving agriculture industry worldwide, however, is facing severe challenges due to a lack of intelligent solutions. China, along with other developing countries, has been suffering from the labour-intensive farming practices and stagnated mechanisation level. This results in production inefficiency and overuse of pesticides and natural resources. Meanwhile across the developed world, aging agriculture population and imprecision in farm management haunt many countries. To tackle such pressing issues, XAG has developed a well-rounded product ecosystem consisting of autonomous Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), Field Monitor and Agriculture IoT System. These cutting-edge technologies can be applied to a wide range of scenarios. XAG XMission Multifunctional UAS, a centimetre-level surveying drone, can capture HD remote sensing images of farmland with abnormality identified, and AI prescriptions can then be generated automatically for crop spraying. XAG’s flagship product P Series Plant Protection UAS, controlled by AI and equipped with high-accuracy RTK navigation system, can save manual labour, spray pesticides precisely and effectively on the fields without tractors crushing the crops while preventing soil compaction. Field Monitor, combined with IoT and big data system, can monitor crop growth and identify plant diseases to assist farmers in managing fields more scientifically and effectively, hence make agriculture production more traceable.XAG P Series Plant Protection UAS Spraying in the FieldsUp to 31st December 2018, XAG has had 21,731 agricultural drones operated globally and provided 1.3 million farmers with plant protection services for over 4,253,299 hectares of farmland. Moreover, XAG has been working to build an integrated network of digital farming infrastructures. By 31st January 2019, 997 RTK base stations have been set up to cover China's main farming areas, providing drones and other autonomous agri-machineries with centimetre-level navigation accuracy. High definition maps of these areas have been captured by surveying UAS for field navigation, efficient field management, smart farming analysis, etc. As XAG gradually secures a place in the Chinese market, it has been aiming for international expansion on an increasingly larger scale. It is known to have collaborated with industry leaders and authorities to set up research and development centers or test sites across 20 countries. In Japan with an average agriculture population of over 60 years old, XAG has exclusively joined hands with Bayer to provide 1.37 million farmers with customised UAS plant protection service which is more effective, precise and safer. In Australia, a country hit by pollination crisis due to climate change and thereby the decline of bees, XAG has worked with the local agricultural research team and farms to use drones as “electronic bees” for artificial pollination that turned out to increase fruit yields by 15%. XAG has also engaged in a series of multinational projects on sustainable farming and economic development. XAG together with Bayer and Alibaba Rural Taobao has initiated a demonstration project “Sustainable Farming Programme” to establish a complete, self-sustained smart agriculture ecosystem, in which the most advanced technologies are applied to ensuring an eco-friendly production process and a full-transparent, traceable food value chain. And this April, XAG has entered an even larger stage of public-private cooperation; it joins the World Economic Forum as a member of Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. From a local drone producer to a global Agri-tech pioneer, XAG adopts XA.com to unfold its ambition for internationalisation and deliver its geek spirits of adventure and perfection. Compared to the earlier domain XAircraft.com, XA.com is simply more than a memorable, easily recognisable online identity. It undoubtedly better carries XAG’s brand value and prospect to shape the future of sustainable agriculture for 7.6 billion people, by unceasingly exploring smart farming technology.

This places XAG in a wider international arena where it will closely collaborate with different stakeholders to develop governance protocols and schemes on how to better harness the infinite potential of technology, empowering the global economy with a sustainable future. The World Economic Forum (WEF), established in 1971, is an international, impartial non-profit organisation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It aims to promote public-private cooperation and fuel a stable, sustainable economic growth. Annual meetings emphasising on different agenda and topics are held throughout the year, which bring leaders and innovators from governments, businesses, academia and civil organisations together to discuss urgent issues and tackle the common challenges of society. Members invited to join the WEF are market leaders or technology pioneers with growing influence in specific industry or region. This indicates that XAG’s significant endeavour and achievement in transforming the agricultural industry with UAS technologies have been recognised both nationwide and worldwide. One of the major initiatives of the WEF is “Shaping the Future of Food”, since our current food system has excessively extracted natural resources and pushed our nature into an ecological deficit. Based on the findings from the World Resources Institute, the world’s population would expand into 10 billion and require 56% more sustenance by 2050, therefore a sustainable, nourishing food system desperately needs to be structured to feed this increasingly growing population without damaging the environment. Science and disruptive technology come to play a vital part.Source: the World Resources InstituteAs a leading Agri-tech company, XAG has been committed to fulfilling its mission “Make Agriculture Smarter” through incorporating drone technology with artificial intelligent, Big data, Internet-of-Things, robots and other digital farming tools. This disrupts the agriculture industry, as XAG provides farmers with efficient solutions to precision spraying, accurate field mapping and intelligent crop management which help to tackle the challenges of environment pollution, pesticide residual and low productivity brought by the traditionally labour-intensive, resource-consuming farming practices. To date, XAG’s products and services have successfully operated in a global network with 19 countries such as Japan and Australia, increasing crop yields by 8%, reducing 30% of pesticide use and preserving 90% of water resources. Joining hands with the WEF, XAG will strives to accelerate digital farming and sustain a healthy global food system with a transparent, traceable value chain, in which farmers’ livelihood will be improved, and food safety will be guaranteed for the end consumers while exerting minimal pressure on our planet. References: https://www.weforum.org/https://www.wri.org/
