The "national subsidy" policy has entered the implementation stage, and the plant protection UAV industry is about to erupt
in recent years, with the continuous acceleration of the development of plant protection UAVs and their increasingly extensive application, the voice of the industry for purchase subsidies continues to rise. Now, the "national subsidy" policy has entered the implementation stage, which is expected to promote a new round of growth in the plant protection UAV market in the future and obtain a broader development prospect
plant protection unmanned aerial vehicles, that is, unmanned aerial vehicles applied to agricultural and forestry plant protection, can be used to spray pesticides, seeds, powders and other farmland operations. In recent years, the development of plant protection UAVs has been accelerating, but the whole industry is basically still in its infancy
according to the statistics of China's industrial information, in 2015, the number of plant protection UAVs nationwide reached 2324 (according to the statistics of 31 provinces), with a total operating area of 11.528 million mu times, compared with 695 and 4.26 million mu in 2014, with a year-on-year increase of 234% and 170.6% respectively
however, based on the calculation that the total operation area of plant protection UAVs reached 11.528 million mu times in 2015, China is still in the stage of in-depth development of industrialization, informatization, urbanization, marketization and internationalization, and the proportion of plant protection of UAVs in China is less than 1%, while the proportion of agricultural aviation operations in the cultivated land area of the United States and Japan has been successfully promoted, reaching 50% and 54% respectively, The world average has also reached 17% higher than that of China
the state officially promotes the landing of "national subsidy"
in order to further release the market potential of plant protection UAVs and promote the rapid development of plant protection UAV industry, the Ministry of agriculture, the Ministry of Finance and the Civil Aviation Administration of China jointly issued the notice of the General Office of the Ministry of agriculture, the general office of the Ministry of Finance and the General Department of the Civil Aviation Administration of China on carrying out the pilot work of agricultural machinery purchase subsidies to guide the standardized application of plant protection UAVs (hereinafter referred to as the notice), It is decided to select six provinces (cities) in 2017, including Zhejiang (including Ningbo), Anhui, Jiangxi, Hunan, Guangdong and Chongqing, to carry out the pilot work of guiding the standardized application of plant protection drones with agricultural machinery purchase subsidies
it is worth noting that the pilot funds are arranged in the central financial subsidy fund for the purchase of agricultural machinery, and the total amount of each pilot province is controlled within 10million yuan. The subsidy targets agricultural production and operation organizations engaged in plant protection operations, and no subsidy is temporarily granted to individuals who purchase plant protection unmanned aircraft
in addition, the notice also proposed that the quota subsidy for the purchase of pilot products would enable complex data analysis, and the subsidy amount for each product should not exceed 30% of the average market sales price of the product in 2017, and the subsidy amount for a single machine should not exceed 30000 yuan. According to the pilot plan, UAVs piloted in local provinces and cities must only be used in the field of agricultural production, and the subsidy funds are directly given to buyers
local provinces and cities have accelerated the implementation of subsidies
with the official introduction of the "national subsidy" policy, relevant local provinces and cities have also accelerated the implementation of the pilot work of agricultural machinery purchase subsidies. Recently, Jiangxi Province and Chongqing have successively promoted the implementation of relevant work
recently, the Chongqing Municipal Committee of agriculture, the Chongqing Municipal Bureau of Finance and the Chongqing Administration of civil aviation jointly issued a notice: from October 30, 2017 to March 30, 2018, carry out subsidies for the purchase of agricultural machinery, guide the standardized application pilot of plant protection unmanned aerial vehicles (that is, unmanned aerial vehicles used for agricultural, forestry and plant protection operations), so as to guide the development and standardized application of plant protection unmanned aerial vehicle technology, and promote the green development of agricultural status bar industry
the subsidy targets agricultural production and operation organizations engaged in plant protection within Chongqing, mainly including farmers (agricultural machinery) professional cooperatives, plant protection operation organizations, and crop pest control and governance organizations. The financial department will implement a quota subsidy for plant protection drones, with a subsidy of 29000 yuan for each single rotary wing plant protection drone included in the pilot product and 16000 yuan for each multi rotor plant protection drone (including battery)
Jiangxi Province has also issued the pilot implementation plan for the purchase subsidy of unmanned aerial vehicles for plant protection in Jiangxi Province (hereinafter referred to as the plan), and carried out the pilot work of the purchase subsidy of unmanned aerial vehicles for plant protection in grain producing counties and "advantageous citrus producing areas"
the plan specifies that the pilot plant protection unmanned aircraft is an electric multi rotor aircraft, 10L ≤ rated drug load ≤ 15L, and contains at least 4 sets of batteries. Based on the principle of "control quota" of agricultural machinery purchase subsidies, each subsidy is 17000 yuan. The pilot areas are grain producing counties and "advantageous citrus producing areas", including Nanchang County, Xinjian District, Jinxian County, Leping City and Xiushui County, with a total of 64 counties (cities and districts). The total scale of the pilot fund is 10million yuan
with the further implementation of the "national subsidy" policy at the local level, it is expected to effectively promote the steady development of the plant protection UAV market and release greater dividends for consumer groups under the condition that enterprises continue to reduce costs and prices. Although there are still many provinces and cities in the country that have not included plant protection UAVs in the scope of subsidies, with the active promotion of national policies, the outbreak of plant protection UAV industry is not far away
