Enterprise Technology Review | Monday, September 28, 2020

Many farmers and agricultural companies are using technologies to offer better care to the cattle and increase the quality of the crops.

FREMONT, CA: The agricultural sector is developing rapidly due to the implementation of new digital technologies, biotechnological solutions, and advancing the development of robotics. Therefore, in recent times, many investors are also investing in Agri-Food Tech to increase their growth.

Today, digital technologies have stuck with the industry to such an extent that every component of the food supply chain is digitalized. Moreover, with such innovative technologies, every part can even create a new specific market. However, it is also necessary to increase the efficiency of labor, supply chain transparency, and quality of products in agriculture because there are many private contractors in the agricultural business.

2 The end of one size fits all method

According to the developer of cloud platforms of agricultural companies, which increases the efficiency of the supply chain believes that the primary difficulty for agriculture is one size fits all technique. Most of the time, the agroeconomic guidance, which is essential for boosting productivity, yields, and quality, is offered at a large scale. The individual areas and variations are not incorporated in it. This system can be complicated if the farmers have large farms because it is not possible for the agronomists to monitor the crops in traditional methods. Therefore, technology can be used for monitoring and offering a hyper-local solution.

3 AI-based farming contributes to a better ecology

Artificial intelligence can be utilized to ease farmer's load and make the production of food more sustainable. It will also enhance the ecological situation and offer better care to animals.
