Satellite technology maximizing China's summer harvest


11:09, June 22, 2022

As China plows through its summer harvest, satellite technology, specifically the homegrown BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS), is helping farmers move at full throttle. Skilled farmers in east China's Shandong Province are using mobile phones to control the routes of unmanned harvesters. Remote satellite sensors and drones are used to map the wheat fields, with updated data on wheat maturity being supplied every day. This year, more than 650,000 combine harvesters were allocated to wheat, including more than 130,000 featuring BDS, up 40 percent from last year.
