Modern agriculture has give us the safest, the most affordable and plentiful food supply in the history of species.
But with the Global population growing at current rate it's been estimated that we have to produce more foods in the next 30years than what we have in the entire history of humanity.
So in this article we are going to learn how digitizing is set to help farmers in food production.
Modern farming is set to use artificial intelligence in crop production to benefits both business and planet.
The aim of the transformation is to produce more food from gaming with less, that's more volumes of agro-chemicals, less heavy machinery, less water, no additional land and also less time for farmers.
The development which is said to rung the agriculture revolution Includes;
a. The development of sensor technology that is both astonishingly small and cheap.
b. Communications technology which is will move data between the fields and computational could.
c. The technology to process mind-blowing volumes of information with artificial intelligence (AI) and machinery learning.
And these innovations tends to help farmers to;
a. make decisions on whether to water crops or not using the irrigation system sensors.
b. Sow accurately, treat and harvest crops in large scale with the help of GPS and advances in machineries
c. Monitor weed levels and canopy coverage, soil analysis and weather patterns.
This data image satellite will help farmers predict the outcomes of farming decisions which includes types of crops to planted based on the soil texture, why they should plant in this field, and when to spray the crops.
The digital revolution can also help at the other end of the food chain, when it comes to Predicting crop yield.
ApisProtect was developed to help beekeepers reduce losses and increase productivity.
Netherlands has the highest yield in tomato production at almost 132,000 tonnes per sq miles.They rely heavily on glasshouses as these closed buildings allow farmers to control horticultural conditions precisely.
The introduction of these digital technologies and deep data processing might bring the needs of the people and planet in line, reduce harmful chemical use, tailoring crop treatment levels and helping us understand the ecosystems upon which we rely.
Great initiative let's support it wholeheartedly.
