XAG Attends US 2nd Spray Drone User Conference Sponsored by Pegasus Robotics

XAG attended the 2nd US Spray Drone User Conference held from February 26th to 29th in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hosted by Auburn University Extension and partly sponsored by XAG’s US partner, Pegasus Robotics, the conference showcased the latest advancements in agricultural drone technology and precision spraying solutions. Over 300 industry experts, unmanned aircraft operators, and agricultural producers attended this annual gathering. 

 

XAG P100 Pro Agricultural Drone, the industry-leading product released in the US market, was introduced during the conference. This fully autonomous, foldable quadcopter with a 50 kg payload is designed for spraying, spreading, and field mapping. Its innovative features, including RTK centimeter-level navigation, automatic obstacle avoidance, rotary atomization spraying, and App route planning, elevate precision, efficiency and safety to new heights.


Pegasus Robotics presented its capabilities for precise spraying and provided solutions for drone-based agricultural production. Attendees were also treated to live flight demonstrations in the field to experience its ease of operation and effectiveness.

The application prospect of XAG's agricultural drone in the US market was also discussed. As one of the world's leading grain producers, the US has vast arable land covering 1.6 billion hectares and supplies food crops such as corn, soybeans, and wheat. But in recent years, farmers face the increasing challenge of rural aging, resource scarcity, and climate change. According to the US Department of Agriculture, the average age of farmers in 2023 was over 57, with those over 65 managing 40% of the nation’s farmland.

Now the use of agricultural drones has grown rapidly in the US, with many farmers showing interest in this technology. XAG's agricultural drones have great potential in the US market, as they offer various functions that help reduce pesticide and fertilizer use, cut production costs, and improve farming efficiency.
