The Dongfanghong 2BL-4 recently developed by Sinomach subsidiary YTO Group Corporation (YTO) is the first intelligent multi-functional pepper planter in China.

The intelligent pepper planter is now used in Linying county of Central China’s Henan province, where pepper planting equipment is urgently needed. The operating efficiency can reach 30 times that of normal planting.

In June last year, YTO learnt about the great efforts of Linying county to promote wheat-pepper intercropping, and that pepper planting mainly depended on artificial transplanting, which is of high cost and low efficiency. The company immediately carried out field research, and developed high-efficiency equipment for planting.

In March this year, the first products debuted and were delivered to users to conduct large-scale trial seeding; and in May, the project team optimized the product performance according to the feedback of users and results of field investigation.

Customers plan to order another 10 sets and establish a long-term cooperative relationship with YTO.
