July 7th, JEONJU – The Chinese leading agriculture technology company XAG has recently joined the Jeonju Drone Industry International Expo 2019 with its drone-based smart agriculture solutions. This year’s event, which took place in Jeonju World Cup Stadium, South Korea from July 5-7, has attracted over 250 domestic and foreign exhibitors such as Korean Air and the Republic of Korea Army.
XAG, whose booth located in the overseas exhibition hall, has demonstrated its precision agriculture ecosystem including the fully autonomous P Series Plant Protection UAS, XMission Multifunctional UAS and Field Monitor. Professional farmers, entrepreneurs and other audience were specifically drawn to XAG’s advanced industrial design and atomisation spraying system.
South Korea has been facing difficulty in securing agricultural workforce, largely attributed to the steady migration to urban districts as well as the aging farming population. According to Statistics Korea, the number of households engaged in the agriculture sector has notably decreased by 42.5% in less than two decades.
Smart agriculture technology plays an important role in rejuvenating Korea’s rural economy. By introducing drone and AI technology to replace physical manpower, XAG is set to enable precision agriculture in South Korea to improve its production efficiency while boosting crop yield in a sustainable way.
