Thanks to the big data industry’s explosive rise in recent years, Guizhou Province’s agricultural and rural sectors have seen a spectacular shift. This trend has prompted the province to quicken the implementation of digital farming scenarios, promoting the digitization and thoughtful evolution of conventional agricultural techniques. Digital technology has been incorporated into every facet of agricultural production, distribution, operation, and sales, from crop growing to final consumption. There has been a significant “Butterfly Effect” as a result of this seamless integration of digitalization and industry.
Over 1,000 locally based digital sales platforms, including “ONE MA Guizhou,” are available in Guizhou Province’s front end and have become essential entry points for outside sales. At the middle end, the effective delivery of agricultural products from Guizhou has been accelerated by the integration of logistical infrastructure, which is demonstrated by the “Cloud Warehouse of Guizhou Products” spanning provincial, city, county, town, and village levels. Finally, the user-friendly “Guizhou Intelligent Agriculture Cloud Platform” has established itself as a trustworthy digital steward, promoting business expansion and data gathering.
Big data’s newly discovered “wisdom” has drastically changed how Guizhou’s farmers produce and run their businesses.
A hub for agricultural data is the Guanling County Prickly Ash Industry Data Center, located in the Luoye New Village in Longtan Sub-district, Guanling Autonomous County. A large LED display here displays in-depth information on the prickly ash farming ecosystem. Over 400 acres of prickly ash planting in the Luoye New Village, Longtan Sub-district, receive real-time data on growth, insect control, soil pH levels, and other crucial parameters thanks to this capable big data platform. These useful data make it possible to offer various agricultural advice, environmental monitoring, and early warning services for the prickly ash crop base.
The Prickly Ash Industry Data Center also has a wide range of cutting-edge technology, such as Internet of Things (IoT) monitoring, standardized management, and AI-based agronomic services. Weather stations, soil monitoring stations, and insect measuring lamps are carefully positioned across the prickly ash crop region to support this extensive infrastructure. Real-time monitoring of critical variables including soil conditions, temperature, humidity, and insect activity is made possible by these gadgets.
The idea of automated green ecological intelligent pig farming has been completely transformed at the farm of Guizhou Shenghai Ecological Animal Husbandry Development Co., Ltd. in Kaiyang County. This device automatically controls variables like temperature and humidity while enabling real-time video surveillance of the whole pig farming operation.
According to the information given, every pig at the pig farm has an intelligent ear tag that enables ongoing data collecting. These intelligent ear tags continuously record different data, such as noises and body temperature. Breeders can efficiently track the pigs’ development and health status by examining this data.
The booming rural e-commerce market in Guizhou is an example of how contemporary agriculture and digital technology can coexist. The region has seen a major increase in the presence of mainstream e-commerce platforms like Alibaba and Jingdong in recent years, with an emphasis on rural communities in particular.
Thousands of homes are now connected by live broadcast hosts, encouraging direct communication between farmers and customers. Local e-commerce platforms and logistical infrastructure have been continuously developed at the same time, altering the ways in which agriculture is produced and sold.
A novel position known as “live-streaming host in rural areas” has developed in Guizhou Province’s Rongjiang County, which is part of the Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture. One of them is Wang Qihong, a live-streaming presenter from the hamlet who went from selling her own agricultural products to helping entire communities boost their revenue. She has presented more than 3,000 live presentations over the last six years, selling 200,000 kg (400,000 Jin) worth of vegetables and other agricultural products.
In recent years, Rongjiang County has worked hard to establish and promote various live-streaming teams. As a consequence, in 2022 the county realized total sales of more than 300 million yuan for a variety of items, both online and offline.
A new wave of digital economic growth is emerging because to the combination of the thriving big data sector and Guizhou’s rural rejuvenation. The Guizhou Province just released its “Thousands of Enterprises Integration” Empowerment Action Plan. By 2025, it is anticipated that Guizhou will have made significant progress toward enhancing the digitization of agriculture. The objective is to dramatically increase the big data and agricultural integration index from 39.8 in 2020 to 45 in 2025, fostering even more synergy between both industries and releasing the potential for revolutionary improvements in the region’s agriculture.
