Anxicense Seedling: The digital seedling factory makes the industry ecology more standardized and more effective

"Anxicense Seedling was established in 2008 and initially focused on cultivating vegetable seedlings. With the development of time and the expansion of business, it has now developed into a comprehensive enterprise focusing on vegetable seedling cultivation and R&D of related facilities and equipment." Mr. Han Jishu, chairman of Shandong Anxicense Seedling, said.

"Vegetable seedling suppliers play an increasingly important role as a bridge of communication between breeders and growers. But as the scale of seedling factories continues to expand, we are also aware of many shortcomings in the industry. Agriculture, especially traditional agriculture, is labor-intensive and requires high physical strength. And because traditional agriculture lacks a unified measurement standard, the main production activities rely on the experience of decision-makers, not only on the growers' own knowledge but also on the accumulated experience of production. On the one hand, this kind of decision-making based on experience is too subjective, and the output and market demand are easily biased. Also, it is difficult to replicate and promote the planting model. When we cultivate seedlings on a larger and standard scale, the larger the scale, the more impossible it is to solve problems based on experience. In response to the lack of agronomic standards and labor problems, we began to study the corresponding automated facilities and equipment and set out to establish standardized agronomy. Anxicense Seedling invests about 10% of its sales in scientific research every year and has established 5 R&D centers. Over the past 10 years, a relatively complete system has been initially formed, and a digital seedling factory has been established," Han said.

"In our digital seedling factory, watering, fertilization, lighting, spraying, and disinfection can be done automatically on the seedbed, and the staff can remotely control the seedbed. In addition, seedlings can be detected, and the number, height, leaf color, and shape can be detected through artificial intelligence image recognition. If a disease is found, it can also be dealt with in time, spraying with agents and observing the effect."

"The shape of seeds is usually irregular and very small. Manual sowing is easy to overdo or miss, and inaccurate planting machinery will also cause waste. Therefore, we have developed a planter with image recognition function, and strive to achieve one seed in one hole, which can reduce waste caused by imprecise seeding by 10%, which further means it can save a lot of money."

"There is other equipment in the factory, such as vegetable seedling grafting machines and inspection robots. Each industry has its own specific needs. Companies that provide agricultural machinery and equipment do not know the actual needs of the seedling industry. We have our own seedling factory, which can accurately describe the demand scenarios to our own R&D department or related R&D enterprises so that the facilities and equipment are more suitable for the actual uses. It has been more than a year since the digital seedling factory was built and put into operation, and it has achieved the expected results. The digital seedling factory model has been successfully expanded to Zhejiang and Inner Mongolia."

"In recent years, the innovative manufacturing capabilities of Chinese companies have been gradually improving. Whether it is self-cultivated varieties or agricultural machinery equipment, they can even occupy a position overseas. Our products are also sold to Dubai, Pakistan, Indonesia, Crimean, and other countries and regions. Good service and high-quality products have won us many customers. "
