The future of Agriculture in Taiwan
Taiwan is moving towards Agricultural 4.0, which calls for the agricultural industry to optimize manpower, resources, and the overall industry. In recent years, the development of applied agricultural ICT (Information and communications technology) has become a global trend. Taiwan’s Council of Agriculture has also listed the integral application of ICT as one of the government’s top priorities. Taiwan boasts its highly advanced ICT industry, and the key to the next level lies in being able to incorporate that technology into various different aspects of our new agricultural industry.
Starting 2018, COA has invested 1 billion USD in subsidies for the farming industry to upgrade farmers’ facilities, machinery and encourage the adoption of IT to reduce the reliance on manpower. Right now is the time for entering the Taiwanese market as the agricultural industry goes through its transformation phase and has an increased market demand for complete system solutions, not to mention Taiwan is also the prime market for other ASEAN countries to test out and search for new technologies.
Smart farming and green agriculture are the highlights of our trade show. We have key companies in Taiwan to exhibit at the show. Yuan Kai Machinery Co., Ltd., with their history of making various carts and cultivators also offers an automated fertilizer spreader to replace manual fertilizing to increase efficiency. ALIGN Corp.,Ltd., offers state-of-the-art agricultural drones that can increase the spray efficiency up to 30 times of manual spraying. Tatung Co. promotes an integrated smart greenhouse system that monitors the environmental condition of the greenhouse for data collection and real-time feedback, which will also promote efficiency and cut down the need for manpower.
Taiwan – A Gateway to ASEAN Countries
Taiwan is well known for its strong agricultural technologies in the world. Visitors from ASEAN region come to find the latest applied technologies, facilities and tool supply. As of now Taiwan has several agriculture example zones in cooperation with countries such as the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India. These countries have chosen Taiwan as their partner based on Taiwan’s location, weather conditions and industry know-hows. Taiwan can offer all the necessary agricultural technologies and manufacturing capabilities that these countries need to take their own agriculture industries to the next level. With Taiwan’s advanced breeding technology, ASEAN countries can also find specifically bred seedlings customized for subtropical climate.
