By the 2050 human population will be over 10 billion. Therefore we need to prepare to fulfill the food need of that kind of population. Which means we should double the amount of food we now produce. To achieve that target we have introduced new technologies for farming and agriculture. These kinds of improvements in farming and agriculture allow us to not only increase productivity but also reduce the human workload. So let’s talk about what is smart farming and how we can implement it in real life.
Smart farming is a method used to increase productivity and the quality of agriculture products with the use of advanced technologies and the Internet of things. For example, in the last decade, we didn’t have a proper way to predict the weather with high accuracy. But with smart farming, we have the capability to forecast the weather with high accuracy. So we can manage other things according to that. We will discuss more details about those applications later in this article.
According to the statistics, 11 million agricultural workers produced food for 76 million people in 1900. It about a 1:7 ratio. But after 120 years (in 2020) 6.5 million workers feed about 322 million people in the USA. That is nearly a 1:46 ratio. That explains how much the technologies used in framing have grown. That’s mainly because workers have replaced by machines which are very much faster and efficient than humans.
This is a completely autonomous robot that can collect packages of soil to investigate and give a report that contains almost everything important for farming.
Most of these machines/technologies have already being used in some countries. But in the future, those things won’t very rare to see even in a 3rd world country. Apart from these technologies, there are plenty more. To find out more check the video below.
However, these techniques can be applied not only for large scale farms but also for small farming or family farming. Therefore even beginner level farmers can get a huge boost for there productions using these techniques.
