Nowadays, more and more people rush into cities in pursuit of better working environment and higher income. Farmers work hard to plant an acre of crop a year, which may not be as good as the salary of young rural people working in the city for a month. The enthusiasm of farming was greatly hit. There are fewer and fewer people farming, and more and more abandoned fields fall into a vicious circle.
Abandon the traditional mode of production. In the future, agriculture will not depend on people.
The country is advocating modern agriculture, and the traditional agricultural production mode can no longer adapt to the development trend of modern society. We need to make good use of modern tools, especially smart phones, the internet and big data. Master “unmanned”, the future agriculture does not depend on people.
The application of digital, automatic and intelligent technologies in the agricultural field has accelerated, the concept of unmanned agriculture has basically formed, and the planting, management and harvesting of crops have all realized the “unmanned” operation, intelligent and advanced agricultural machinery such as agricultural UAV has become a “good helper” for farmers to farm “.
What benefits can unmanned agriculture bring to farmers?
1. Improve production efficiency
The application of unmanned technology to the agricultural field has greatly improved the production efficiency. Taking mountainous and hilly areas as an example, the orchard area is large, the plot is irregular, the slope is steep, the artificial spray insecticide is inconvenient to walk, the spraying difficulty is high, and the efficiency is low. It is really a physical work. The orchard with hundreds of Mu is often completed in one hour after agricultural UAV, and it does not leak or respray. The unmanned aerial vehicle that farmers can control only by moving their fingers is too easy to spray insecticide.
The improvement of production efficiency makes farmers have more time to engage in other jobs, thus gaining more income.
2. Save farming costs
The continuous rise of farming costs is one of the reasons for cracking down on farmers’ enthusiasm for farming. The most expensive of farming costs is labor costs. Unmanned technology makes farming more scientific, simplifies many processes, and solves the dilemma of “difficult and expensive labor”. Planting Rice with unmanned aerial vehicles is a good example.
Traditional rice planting requires seedling raising, transplanting and transplanting, and each link requires a lot of manpower and material resources. However, because the live broadcast UAV does not need these links, the processed seeds can germinate and grow directly, and the growth period is short. Compared with rice transplanted by traditional methods, this sowing method reduces the cost by 10%. At the same time, older farmers can continue farming without bending down.
3. Achieve accurate agricultural management
Using big data analysis and transmission through the Internet, rotary tillers can realize remote control, unmanned aerial vehicles can monitor the health status of crops, robots can automatically pick fruits, the ideal mode of unmanned operation in the whole agricultural scene is being realized.
Unmanned technology opens the door to smart agriculture, behind which data and equipment are playing a role. Facing the future, unmanned agriculture liberates people, and the dirtiest and most tiring farm work can be handed over to machines to complete.
