CGTN Exclusive: How a drone is reshaping the age-old profession of farming

CGTN published this video item, entitled “CGTN Exclusive: How a drone is reshaping the age-old profession of farming” – below is their description.

Every year, roughly 200,000 people die from pesticide poisoning across the world, with a large number of them falling prey to direct spraying. The United Nations released the report in 2017, bringing public attention to this long ignored issue. Toxic exposure to pesticides could cause health problems ranging from cancer, sterility, birth defects to neurological disorders. Pesticide poisoning has, for millennia, been a conundrum for farmers worldwide, yet no effective solution has come out until recent years when scientists and technologists began applying automated robots to agriculture.
