Over the next decades a new innovation will revolutionize the efficiency of farms all over the world. It will be a breakthrough in the Agriculture sector. This will not come soon enough but. In the year 2050 it is estimated that the human population will be nearly 10 billion. This means we need to double the amount of food we now produce. To attain this, it needs the intervention of the government, and all sectors in the society. We also need to consider how to finance this.
The changes brought about by technology specifically in farming has allowed farmers to do other things in life. There has also been a surge in productivity.
Examples of innovations in agriculture are:
- Autonomous Picker. This machine can work twice as fast as humans do.
- Robotic weed and Pest killers. Instead of manually removing the weeds, this device uses lasers to zap the weeds away. This has a big impact in Agriculture since many crops are destroyed by pest and disease.
- Micro-sensors. This sensor monitor crop growth and will alert farmers in their smart phone if there’s a problem or when the crops are ready to harvest.
- Robotic Soil Sampler. It takes and liquefies soil samples to know its Ph and phosphorous levels all in real time.
This are just a few, note that there are many more innovations in Agriculture.
