Agriculture Today: On the Verge of a Revolution
The agriculture industry may be growing, but so is the burden on today’s farmers. Agricultural operations around the world face mounting pressure to feed an ever-increasing populace, meet stringent sustainability regulations, and overcome a myriad of other modern challenges, all while conserving both farmland and water due to a diminishing natural resource base.
What the agricultural industry needs most today is to perfect its operational efficiency, creating as much yield as possible while using as few resources as possible.
Luckily, by leveraging Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 technologies, modern farmers can harness the power of automation to establish Precision Farming practices, or practices that use technology to flexibly ensure that every inch of arable farmland is properly utilized for the future of farming.
Now, the questions are: what will the rise of Precision Farming and agricultural automation mean for farming operations in practice? What applications could be leveraged to help them solve the issues that are most pressing for their unique environments? And what will farming operators need to enable these new assets and programs, which will have increasingly autonomous demands, over time?
Precision Farming: An Answer to Today’s Agricultural Pressures
The ultimate question for today’s agricultural industry is this: How can farmers achieve peak productivity while also keeping costs low and using sustainable practices?
Finding an answer to this question could have major implications for farmers. It could mean feeding the growing population while using less farmland; using fewer natural resources while increasing yields; reducing pests and diseases without stripping the soil of its nutrients. In short, the right holistic solution could revolutionize the way the world farms…
