Ms. Sabine Liu, General Manager of UBM Taiwan, remarked on the overall success of the exhibition, “The manpower of agricultural industries is steeply decreasing, but the demand for food is dramatically rising. We believe innovative technologies and equipment will bring the solutions for food crisis, food safety and animal diseases.” The practice to input IoT and bio technology into agriculture has been well developed in Taiwan. It is expected itself to become one of the agri-tech representative models in the future, said Ms. Liu.
Precision agriculture is being the trend nowadays and leads the boost of greenhouse. Tatung Company and Hua Wang Ltd., are making ongoing efforts to change weather conditions in small spaces and helping farmers achieve steady yield and income. In addition, Seed & Seedling Pavilion promoted harvest performance of cruciferous vegetables, watermelons, cherry tomatoes and graft passion fruit seedlings. They feature better quality and greater survival of grafted plants, and are heat-, disease-, moisture-, and drought- resistant and tolerant.
The exhibitors, Blutech and Fu Chen Automatic Control, expand IIoT market footprints on intelligent facility that helps monitor aquatic farming environment. “The purpose of smart farming is to reduce the cost of manpower, but increase yields. Unmanned fish farm is more than just an idea, it's now our task to work on AI-enabled system for smart aquaculture development,” stated Deral Chen, CEO of Blutech. A simulated fish pond was set onsite of exhibition to reveal the working process and data collection from Blutech's smart products.
Poultry equipment is another prime focus. Nabel's egg grading and packing systems are capable of inspecting microcracks at the surface of egg shells. The wide range of capacity from 10,000 to 240,000 eggs per hour is assured, said Nabel. On the other hand, Biogas Power Pavilion is very popular with its featured equipment of biogas desulfurization and purification. For animal disease prevention, Sunki Biotech introduced Serizawa Style Organic High Speed Disposal System WCC series to avoid the possible epidemic and infection risk from transportation of poultry dead bodies.
