Why AI-based AgTech is Agriculturist's New Favorite?

Enterprise Technology Review | Wednesday, April 01, 2020

Artificial intelligence-based agriculture technology helps agriculturists tackle the new age farming challenges by providing solutions to boost the quantity and quality of crops.          

FREMONT, CA: The introduction of technology has influenced the agricultural sector in numerous ways. From sowing seeds to checking the quality of soil, agriculture technology, primarily based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), continues to offer next-generation farming solutions. As the world's population grows, the demand for smarter farming products and solutions also increases. 

Today, agriculturists are approaching tech-driven farm equipment and farming strategies to fulfill the growing demands of the population with quality products. AI-based farming tools and applications provide numerous benefits like significant control over pests, efficiently monitor the soil and crop condition, identify the need for fertilizers, and improve the agricultural supply chain. Immensely influencing the agrarian market, AI continues to help the agriculturists explore new methods for accelerating their crop production and revenue.

• Smart Analysis Of Farm Data

Farming was never an easy task as it requires precise analysis of weather condition, soil quality, crops demand in the market, and many more. AI technology allows farmers to choose the best hybrid seeds for sowing based on their soil quality report. The in-depth farm reports, including the prediction of weather conditions, enable farmers to optimize the planning and generate bountiful yields by the strategic utilization of available resources.
