IOT TRANSFORMING THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE IOT Solutions World Congress DIGITALIZING INDUSTRIES

#artificialintelligence

With the exponential growth of world population, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the world will need to produce 70% more food in 2050, shrinking agricultural lands, and depletion of finite natural resources, the need to enhance farm yield has become critical. Limited availability of natural resources such as fresh water and arable land along with slowing yield trends in several staple crops, have further aggravated the problem. Another impeding concern over the farming industry is the shifting structure of agricultural workforce. Moreover, agricultural labor in most of the countries has declined. As a result of the declining agricultural workforce, adoption of internet connectivity solutions in farming practices has been triggered, to reduce the need for manual labor.


Smart Farming, or the Future of Agriculture

#artificialintelligence

We are a Ukraine-based company which means that our parents and grandparents lived in the era of infamous Soviet collective farms, where tractors were considered to be an ultimate technology. For them, a smart farm will sound like a fairy tale. So let it be, a fairy tale of a smart farm. First of all, what is a smart farm? Smart Farming is a concept of farming management using modern Information and Communication Technologies to increase the quantity and quality of products.


Connected Farming: 5 IoT Applications Redefining Agriculture

#artificialintelligence

In present times, farmers are leaning towards using modern technologies to maximize their production with minimal efforts and resources while also meet the demand of global hunger. While the agricultural revolution of the 1800s brought about grain elevators, chemical fertilizers, and the first gas-powered tractor and the 1960s saw the usage of satellites in farm planning, to feed the projected 9.6 billion human population of 2050, farmers and agricultural researchers need to think of new innovative solutions. Other challenges in agriculture include extreme weather conditions and rising climate change and environmental impact resulting from intensive farming practices. This is why the agriculture industry needs to embrace IoT (Internet of Things). Agricultural IoT applications make it possible for ranchers and farmers to collect meaningful data.


The Internet of Things (IoT) in Agriculture: IoT Solutions for Smart Farming - Digiteum

#artificialintelligence

Today's agriculture is in a race. Farmers have to grow more product in deteriorating soil, declining land availability and increasing weather fluctuation. IoT-enabled agriculture allows farmers to monitor their product and conditions in real-time. They get insights fast, can predict issues before they happen and make informed decisions on how to avoid them. Additionally, IoT solutions in agriculture introduce automation, for example, demand-based irrigation, fertilizing and robot harvesting.
