Oct 01, 2018 General Comments Off on Taiwan company provides agricultural technology to Malaysia
Taipei, A Tainan-based drone manufacturer has emerged as a successful example of providing smart agricultural technology to another market by bringing services to oil palm fields in Malaysia, the manufacturer said in a statement Monday.
Lo Cheng-fang (???), founder of GEOSAT Aerospace & Technology Inc., said GEOSAT entered Malaysia about two years ago and later partnered with All Cosmos Bio-Tech, a Malaysia-based investment holding company established by Taiwanese investors, to provide smart agriculture services using drones, the statement said.
Explaining some of the capabilities of the drones, Lo said the devices are very efficient at spraying pesticides as they can cover up to nearly 40 hectares of land per day, more than 60 times the coverage of manual spraying.
Special multi-spectral sensors can also be mounted on GEOSAT's fixed wing drone to capture the chlorophyll-reflected light waves of crop leaves, which can accurately analyze the growth of crops, improve the efficiency of spraying and fertilizing, and greatly increase their yield, Lo said in the statement.
The capabilities of the drones were also seen during a trip to oil palm fields in the state of Johor in southern Malaysia by Council of Agriculture deputy chief Li Tui-chih (???), the statement said.
During the visit, Li praised the drones as excellent technology that is able to assist with the transformation of agriculture in Southeast Asian countries, the company said.
