Chinese agricultural scientists develop intelligent management system for orchards

BEIJING (Xinhua) – The Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) has developed an intelligent management system for orchards, which can be used in the precise management of horticultural crops such as apples, oranges and pears.

This is the latest achievement of China’s agricultural research in smart agriculture, and the CAAS has been systematically carrying out research on the core theories, technology, equipment and integrated systems of smart agriculture, said President of the CAAS Tang Huajun.

The system for the intelligent management of orchard production uses the integration of space remote sensing, aerial remote sensing and ground Internet of Things to build an integrated system utilising intelligent perception technology, said Chief Scientist of the Intelligent Agricultural Innovation Team of the CAAS Wu Wenbin.

Promoting the development of smart agriculture can cut costs and boost efficiency and quality in the development of agriculture and rural areas, Tang said.
