Top 10 Ways Technology Is Transforming Agriculture

Technological advancement is now seen in all the fields, including agriculture. From crop production to animal rearing- everything has an effect on technology. Due to the availability of modern technology, we will surely able to increase food production by seventy per cent by the year, 2050.

Let’s talk about the ten ways in which the agricultural sector is gaining benefits from the latest innovations.

· Robotic system-

Weeds can cause a concern to the farmers as they affect the efficiency of the plantation. There are robotic machines, which target the destruction of weeds. Modern tractors are equipped with the ability to detect weeds. Thus, you do not need to buy herbicides for those weeds.

· Drones for agriculture-

Drone is applicable in agriculture to have a clear snap of the farms on a regular basis. The farm owners have to upload these images to the Cloud platforms and analyze them to get data. Height and density of crops, number of plants, statistics on the plot and infestation- You will have all these details from the captured images.

· Get connected with wearables-

There are technologically sophisticated wearables that affect the management of fisheries and livestock. You can check out pregnant cows, disease and frequency of milking with a wearable item, put on the collar.

· Monitoring the weather-

The development of IT infrastructure enables the farmers to have data on the pattern of weather. They may also decide on whether they should apply fertilizer at this time.

· Irrigation sensors-

Smart technologies assist the farmers in reducing the wastage of waste. There are special sensors in order to warn the farmers about the leakage and failure of equipment.

Automation, used in the field of irrigation is the best way of producing more crops. The latest algorithms can deal with the water, needed for the plants at the right time. You will get precise results and also save your cost.

· GPS system for the farmers-

This technology has made a significant effect on various operations in agriculture. The producers are now able to control or manage the land in a better way. They are also increasing the rate of their crop production. Improved navigation through the field helps farmers in applying fertilizers. Map out the area and trace the application of various chemicals throughout the field.

· Scanning system for better growth-

Scanning process helps you to make out the value of using fertilizer. The scanners assess the farm for finding out the urinated areas. Urine or wastes of animals can contain potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus. The scanners identify those spots so that you can reduce the use of fertilizer for the area.

-Genetically Modified Organisms-

By studying on the genetic structure of animals and crops, the researchers can modify the DNA. There are plants, which take very short time for getting matured. To increase productivity, GMO is the best option in the agricultural field.

So, with all these ways, the farmers are using technology for superior results.
