(ECNS) -- The Longping Experimental Field for agriculture in Guangzhou, south China's Guangdong Province, welcomed its third spring ploughing season Friday.
Smart technologies are empowering agricultural production at the experimental field, named after the late Chinese scientist Yuan Longping, known as the "father of hybrid rice."
Unmanned seeding machines automatically follow preset routes to sow the seeds.
Farming efficiency has witnessed significant enhancement in this experimental field.
Yuan picked the nearly 67- hectare field in 2020.
A 10-hectare experimental field, technically supported by the China National Hybrid Rice R%26D Center, yielded 1,500-kilogram per mu (around 667 square meters) for two consecutive years.
A 1.3-hectare ecological farming system has been planned to cultivate shrimp and rice this year, to build up an organic natural circulation system.
