“The seed processing capacity of each processing line is 10 tons per hour, and it is developing towards 15 tons per hour.” Fu Qiufeng said that in the past, the seed processing methods were backward, and the efficiency and scale could not be improved. In recent years, automation has improved Soon, the newly developed 5G driverless tasering machine once again extended the industrial chain of the seed industry.

According to Hou Jingxi, manager of the field breeding equipment manufacturing company affiliated to the company, the unmanned navigation tasers are mainly used for detasseling of hybrid seed production corn to obtain the best quality hybrid corn seeds. By setting the program in advance and planning the path, the field work is automatically completed , “In the past, the imported equipment was expensive, and some of them were not acclimatized to the environment. It was necessary to manually extract corn tassels one by one, which was labor-intensive. After we developed this product, it can replace nearly 300 labors a day.”

Today, there are more than 200 registered seed production enterprises in Jiuquan City, more than 500,000 mu of seed production bases have been established, more than 72,000 farmers have participated in seed production, and more than 20 corn, flower and vegetable seed brands have been cultivated successively.
