2020- The Year of AgTech

By Enterprise Technology Review | Friday, February 07, 2020

Advanced devices, precision agriculture, and the robotic systems will allow businesses to be more profitable, efficient, safer, and more environmentally friendly.

FREMONT, CA: The agriculture industry influences many sectors of the economy—locally, and internationally. From farmers and real estate to the supermarkets and restaurants, it's essential to understand what transformations are going on in the agricultural industry and how it will affect the production and distribution of food. The agrarian technologies shaping the agricultural sector is seen in 2020 is likely to set the stage for many years ahead. Issues like the use of global water resources and new technological ability to monitor crops even further will continue to play a role in the United States and agricultural processes in the rest of the world.

A large amount of operations comprises less than all farms in the U.S. Just like the technology has changed many areas of the economy, it will continue to transform and have begun to show the impact on the farming as well. Farmers are rising to the challenge and discovering new ways to put their use of broadband and other forms of technology benefit for them.

One of the transformations in the agricultural drones, which are easier to fly and easier to understand the data they offer. Some drones can respond well, even in the event of changing weather conditions. At present, the farmers can have more detailed predictions about the state of the local weather in their area. Drones help the farmers to determine what can be planted in any given timeframe as well as if crops should be harvested if weather conditions are about to change in their area.

Food safety is a significant area of significant concern for farmers and all those involved in agriculture. Farmers should be conscious of the potential for the contamination as they work in the fields, and as food is transported from one place to the next. Researchers estimate that such costs vary by the kind of farm and the type of material being grown and produced.
