China plans to open a number of unmanned farms operated by advanced machines by the end of the 2025, according to a new technology roadmap released on Wednesday.

Guided by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the roadmap is the country's first to focus on unmanned agricultural machinery as a final product form.

It lists out nine frontier and key technologies such as new mechanic systems, sensing and information collection system, integrated operation tools, and clean energy systems.

The intelligent agricultural machinery equipped with navigation technology and automatic driving capabilities will be popularized throughout China's crop growing plains by the end of the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), according to the MIIT.
