Yangling, an agricultural high-tech demonstration zone in Northwest China's Shaanxi province, is working on developing smart agriculture through improving the scale of intelligent technology use in agriculture production.
A plant protection unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was demonstrated in Yangling on Monday.
Produced by Shaanxi Zhuangke Agriculture Science and Technology Company, the UAV gathers data for 10 hectares of kiwi fruit farmland. After receiving the data, technicians from the company analyze the information and guide farmers to adjust agricultural practices to reduce waste of agricultural products and air pollution.
Thanks to Yangling's development strategy, an increasing number of entrepreneurs have flowed into the demonstration zone to start businesses and develop high-tech agriculture solutions.
In June, Yangling was approved as a National Mass Entrepreneurship and Innovation Demonstration Base.
To provide more support to the zone's businesses, Yangling launched a 10 million yuan ($1.52 million) special fund. Administrative procedures for opening a new business in Yangling also have been simplified, with over 300 procedures being cut.
