Up to 100% increase of sales

China: A higher need for farming robots

"In the past few years, as people become more familiar with farming robots, the applications for these machines are increasing. Compared to the same period last year, the sales of farming robots have increased from 80% to 100%," says Mr. Peng Gang from Botian Automation Technology in Suzhou. 

Less time, less effort, higher efficiency
"At the current stage, the farming robots of our company are mainly cultivation and maintenance robots, weeding robots and harvesting robots in greenhouses. The cultivation and maintenance robots are mainly used in the fruit industry, farming facilities and a part in the field. Compared to the sprinkling by humans, a farming robot has 3 main advantages. First, it saves effort and guarantees that the personnel works in a safe industry. Secondly, a robot saves water and products. While safeguarding the quality of the product, it also protects the environment and avoids the pollutions that additives can bring about. Moreover, It saves time and works efficiently. A robot can replace the labour of up to 10 to 20 men."

"At present, our clientele is mainly located in Shaanxi, the South of Shanxi, South Jiangsu, North Zhejiang, Shanghai, Guangxi, Henan and Yunnan. They are dealers in economic regions and large-scale cultivators. The customers also include fruit orchards or enterprises that operate on a relatively large scale and a few cooperatives and individuals with an advanced awareness of management. In general the scale of operation is usually above 33 hectares."

No clear market competition
"Judging from the current market, competition has not yet entered on the market. But as the market becomes more and more aware of our products, market competition also becomes increasingly fierce. This doesn't worry us. We are a professional company that engages in the research and development of intelligent equipment and industrialised high-standard technology. We have created an advantageous industry platform with the robotics and micro-systems research centre of Suzhou University. In the future, we will thoroughly research the development of intelligent products. We will cover the robotic products for the main segments of fruit industry and agricultural facilities and field management. Our production is focused in the Northwest, East and South of China."
