Smart Agriculture Analytics (SAA) is the leading provider of business intelligence on agricultural technologies (agritech), beginning in China. Our product suite identifies and organizes key data points and supports clients trying to navigate the fast-moving and opaque Chinese agritech market.
Our 8 sectors capture and precisely categorize agricultural technologies, organizing a previously unstructured market and allowing clients to easily see the information most relevant to them.
Modernizing mechanical tools is the first step to improving farm efficiency and output quality. Investing in the proper tools can empower farmers to monitor and control field environment, reduce physical labor and optimize resource allocation to maximize output and minimize cost.
Sample subjects include: combine harvesters, precision navigation systems, unmanned aerial systems
Weather volatility, pesticide resistance and demand growth will push the boundaries of today’s agriculture industry beyond traditional species. Boosting crop growth and resiliency on the gene-level reduces pesticide use, expands cropland boundaries and protects against extreme weather, opening new frontiers of food production.
Sample topics include: GMO trade policy, laser assisted seed sorting, crop performance breakthroughs, harvest reports
In 2012, it is reported that the average Chinese farmer applies 3x as many pesticides as necessary on its fields. Now, pesticide resistance and increasing public health concerns will shape the future of agrochemicals, paving the road for innovative protection tools and strategies that promote both crop and ecosystem health for stable, consistent output.
Sample topics include: pesticide applicators, biopesticides, moisture sensors
The dangers of soil, air and water contaminants are well-known to the public. With the right greenhouse technology that brings food production inside, farmers can harness control over room temperature, exposed sunlight, air chemistry, humidity, and other environmental variables while blocking out unwanted substances. Higher output, paired with modular designs can slash resource and transportation needs, benefitting the farmer and investor socially and economically.
Sample topics include: Greenhouse-integrated solar PV systems, energy-efficient greenhouse lighting, urban greenhouses
More than two-thirds of all agricultural land is devoted to growing feed for livestock. By 2050, China's meat imports are predicted to skyrocket over 3,500 percent, opening a world of opportunity and sustainability challenges for the livestock industry. Technologies that support feed production, dairy processing, and waste management will create a livestock systems that is healthy, productive and efficient.
Sample topics include: hydroponic fodder systems, dairy processing plants, biogenic manure treatment
Almost 20% of China’s arable soil is reported to be too contaminated for use by government officials. In order to feed more than 20% of the world’s population with 7% of the arable land, soil technologies will allow farmers to maximize usability of each precious acre, while preserving its optimal condition to ensure environmental, social and economic benefits.
Sample topics include: phytoremediation tech, processed organic fertilizer products.
Hydroponics, aquaponics and aeroponics are just three examples of technologies that radically diverge from traditional food production methods. For good reason – these soilless system can bring magnitudes of improvement in efficiency and yield. China has been actively supporting soilless technologies as a solution to eliminate supply chain inefficiencies to produce food for urban areas.
Sample topics include: automated fertilizer injection, smart water monitoring systems, growth mediums
Agriculture is responsible for nearly 70% of China’s groundwater withdraw. China’s total water supply has already dropped 13% since the start of the century, but water demand continues to grow due to expanding energy and food industries. To address the impending choke-point, China’s government has placed several favorable policies for water-saving technologies, placing the country as the center of a growing global water-tech market.
Sample topics include: Sub-surface drip irrigation and solar-integrated water pumps, drip irrigation with alternative water sources (recycled brown water or seawater).
