2018 July 3rd, UK - XAG.Co., Ltd. was invited to the first Agricultural Innovation Conference and Exhibition held by Harper Adams University (HAU), National Centre for Precision Farming etc., which attracted delegates and speakers from all over the world, as well as a team of international representatives from the Department for International Trade and a good field of industry exhibitors. XAG, as the representative of the industry, the Vice President & Co-Founder Justin Gong gave a keynote speech at the conference.
The discussion sessions were extremely informative, as was the opening addressed by Caroline Drummond, Chief executive of LEAF and an honorary graduate of Harper Adams University. Of particular note was the session by Justin Gong, who gave a fact-filled presentation on the state of play in technology adoption in Chinese agriculture, mentioned by David Llewellyn, the Vice-Chancellor of Harper Adams University. ‘The opportunity was taken to launch a strategic partnership between XAG and HAU, with the generous gift of a new agricultural drone system to Harper Adams’, Kit further stated, ‘We look forward to developing collaborative activities with the company in the coming months.’
Justin Gong conveyed the same idea in his speech, he stressed that in the future strategic cooperation with HAU, XAG will not only dedicate into the research and development of agricultural drones, but also will increase the input in AI and field-based robots. ‘Collaborating with Harper Adams University is a great opportunity’, said by Justin, ‘I believe HAU’s advanced researches in agriculture will help us create further values for farmers all over the world while promoting smart agriculture.’.
At last, congratulations to Debbie Heeks who organised this very successful event, supported by Rose Judeh-Elwell, and to all of the Harper Adams staff who contributed to the programme and exhibitions.
