At a wheat subject in Weifang, a city in east China’s Shandong Province, two unmanned wheat harvesters geared up with produce measurement software program are doing the job effectively.

“Wheat was sown late very last yr. Nevertheless, less than the steering of the huge details of the clever agricultural management platform, the area administration of wheat has been accomplished effectively.
