How are the first young people flying UAVs in the fields now?

Golden autumn and September are the time when peaches and cotton floss. The white cotton fields of 1.02 million mu in Yuli County of Xinjiang bring together Liu Jun from Hubei Province and Ma Yangyang from Anhui Province.
Several plant protection uavs in the fleet are their signals to identify each other. During the month-long cotton harvesting season, thousands of pilots like Liu Jun and Ma Yangyang flew to Xinjiang from all over the country to spray defoliant on the cotton plants that first vomited cotton peaches, so that cotton could be bolted, ripened and defoliated at the same time, so as to facilitate the unified harvesting of machinery to reduce impurities.
In the daytime, they trample on the earth in the hot sun, and in the evening they drink beer and mutton kebabs to exchange experiences. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) used in agricultural plant protection have become an important tool to reduce costs and improve efficiency in agricultural production, from being suspected to being gradually accepted. This is not only the precision and wisdom of agriculture, but also the career dreams and growth trajectories of these young UAVs pilots.

"I am a professional farmer"
In 2015, 21-year-old Ma Yangyang was still playing with a model, while 29-year-old Liu Jun had been working on a harvester for several years, but they all saw the future of UAV flight defense, an effective way to reduce insect population density in a large area and in a short period of time by spraying pesticides on general aircraft. Ma Yangyang tried to assemble UAVs and spray pesticides on his own, but ultimately failed due to lack of expertise. Liu Jun also searches for accessories on the Internet and considers assembling machines during the busy farming period, but in view of the immature market, he can only do so.
This year is in the stage of widespread controversy about agricultural plant protection UAV. Most farmers are skeptical about the effect of UAV medication. However, model enthusiasts and traditional agricultural mechanics became the first to eat crabs out of experience and curiosity.
Liu Jun saw the seriousness of the aging of rural labor force through his father's exhausting experience. One afternoon in 2017, Liu Jun's father went to pesticide his fields until dark. The anxious Liu Jun found the field and found his father paralyzed under the tree, panting. "There is very little land in our family. We could have finished the medicine in more than two hours, but my father did it for four hours." Liu Jun recalled to the Daily Economic News, "I have tried artificial medicine myself, but a young man can't stand it. It's very hard."
Liu Jun, who was reluctant to let his father work hard again, decided to buy a mature plant protection UAV product on the market based on the market observation of the previous two years. "Doing harvesters before is to harvest across the country, cross-regional operations, using UAVs is also to continue to take the road of agricultural machinery, but also to liberate human resources, with economic value, let alone I have some large-scale resources on hand." Liu Jun told reporters.
After looking for business opportunities, Liu Jun received training and returned to his hometown in Hubei with UAVs, but he did not expect to eat a "closed door soup". "My father didn't let me fight in my own land. He thought that the amount of water sprayed by UAVs was too small. He was afraid that the sun would evaporate and it would not work." Liu Jun, who runs into a wall at home, sprays pesticides free of charge on other people's fields in the village, taking this opportunity to practice. Now, with the increase of farmers'trust in UAVs, Liu Jun can earn thousands of yuan a day through UAV plant protection operations.
Ma Yangyang, an Anhui flyer born in 1994, had similar experiences. He told reporters: "Young people always reject farming and want to stay away from the word'peasant', but later on, after embarking on the road of UAV plant protection, it was found that farming was not so hard and tired, nor did it make so little money as imagined. Growing land is still very profitable. Compared with working in factories, doing UAV plant protection is equivalent to doing half a year's work and earning one year's money. "We are now professional farmers," he laughed.
"Daily Economic News" reporter noted that document No. 1 issued by the State Council in 2012, "Several Opinions on Accelerating the Promotion of Agricultural Science and Technology Innovation and Continuously Enhancing the Supply and Guarantee Capacity of Agricultural Products" had pointed out that "vigorously cultivate new professional farmers".
Gong Huaqin, co-founder of Jifei Technology, a major domestic plant protection UAV manufacturer, told reporters: "Professional farmers should have the values of sustainable development, professional production skills, scientific thinking, lifelong learning mentality and the ability to connect with the outside world. The application of new tools and technologies can bring the closed and isolated producers back to the center of the agricultural value chain.
Another plant protection UAV manufacturer, Xie Dandi, the director of public relations in Dajiang, told reporters that professional farmers can be divided into two types: agricultural owners who own land assets, and professional farmers, who can provide professional services to agricultural owners in seed, plant protection, harvesting, agricultural products trade and so on. "This division of labor is more efficient and respected." Said Xie Tian.

"The industry dividend period seems to be over"
The industry generally believes that 2016 is the watershed of agricultural plant protection UAV.
Before 2016, farmers had a lively attitude towards UAVs. Watching UAVs dispensing became a pastime in the agricultural gap. Their curiosity was limited to how high and far UAVs flew. After 2016, with the recognition of UAV operation effect, UAV plant protection clothing
