Modern technology has played a huge part in the development of the agriculture industry. It is because of modern technology that we can cultivate crops in the deserts using agro-biotechnology.
In today’s agriculture, hi-tech systems such as robot, humidity, and temperature sensors, aerial imagery, and GPS-technology are constantly being used. These progressive technologies, along with precision farming and robotics, enable businesses to be more clean, efficient, profit-able, and safer.
Five innovative farming methods and technologies that are playing a significant role in changing the agricultural sector:
- Urban Agriculture
- The Drones
- Artificial Intelligence
- Blockchain Technology
- CRISPR & Gene Editing
Benefits of Modern Agricultural Technology
- High Crop Productivity
- Decreased usage of fertilizers, water, & pesticide
- Less effect on natural eco-system
- Less run-off of harmful chemicals into ground-water and rivers
- Improved worker’s wellbeing
