What is the Significance of Agricultural Technology in Reshaping Agri-food Systems?

Food and Beverages | Wednesday, September 07, 2022

Digital agri-food technology has the potential to benefit all stakeholders engaged in the agricultural value chain.

Fremont, CA: The agriculture industry has changed dramatically in the last fifty years. Because of technical developments, farm machinery has gotten larger, better, and more productive, allowing for more efficient cultivation of larger areas.

Additionally, substantially better crops, irrigation, and pesticides have assisted farmers in increasing harvests. With a $6.7 billion investment in farm technology over the last five years, the next wave of digital transformation is just beginning. Future technologies like artificial intelligence, informatics, integrated devices, and other advances can increase returns, enhance the efficacy of irrigation and other inputs, and promote resilience and long-term sustainability in crop development and animal raising.

Digital agri-food technology has the potential to benefit all stakeholders engaged in the agricultural value chain. The objective is now for all large and small players to convert data into value using a digital transformation consultant.

Importance of Agriculture Technology

Many people throughout the world rely on agriculture for food and money. The sector has seen significant alterations and advances in various agricultural techniques and procedures over the past several years. Modern agriculture and farming operations are vastly different than they were decades before, owing primarily to the effect of agricultural technology, which has introduced advances in the form of monitors, machinery, infrastructure, and information systems.

For example, new vehicles and machinery are helpful nowadays, less pesticides get used, and biofertilizers get used. Additional advanced capabilities that have resulted in the digital revolution in agriculture include automation, temperature and climate sensors, detectors, satellite imagery, and global positioning systems (GPS).

Organizations may work more cheaply, efficiently, securely, and sustainably with the support of cutting-edge agricultural technology, precision farming methods, and automation equipment. Because these inputs are widely available, it is critical to harness natural resources and ways to increase agricultural output while reducing costs. For example, farmers no longer need to consistently apply water, manure, and pesticides over the field. Instead, they can use the least amount feasible, concentrate on certain locations, or perhaps even treat different vegetation.
