Application of Digital Technologies in Agriculture has continued to make phenomenal strides over the last couple of years.
Contemporary areas of application include:Sensors:
One of the biggest ways growers are streaming and simplifying the collection, inspection, and distribution of data is the utilization of sensors on equipment and materials.
Sensors placed strategically around fields enable growers to view their crops from anywhere in the world, in real-time. Based on the data, agronomists can make recommendations, and growers can make changes accordingly. In some cases, hourly data used to achieve precise soil moisture health reduces water usage of up to 30%.Drone Technology:
Growers and agronomists are increasingly using drones to improve their efficiencies while simultaneously boosting their yields and productivity. Drones are used to generate maps and models that growers and agronomists can use to predict soil quality, plant health, and even plan seed planting patterns.
Drones can even spray chemicals on crops while mindful not to penetrate groundwater.Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence:
Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence are making it easier to monitor soil conditions, water usage, and weather.
As AI captures and analyzes data, agronomists and growers garner insights that enable them to make more accurate decisions, faster.
