The world depends on agriculture for survival, due to the increase in world population and the need to ensure food security in different regions, the demand for agricultural products has increased.
With the advancement of technology, new agricultural methods are gradually replacing some traditional methods.
One of these methods is farming on smart farms. In this article, we look at smart farms and new agricultural technologies. Stay with us:
According to futures research in agriculture, the amount of soil used for agriculture has decreased by about 0.7%.
At the same time, population growth has increased significantly compared to previous generations
Farmers traditionally used water, fertilizers, and pesticides without specifying the exact location on the farm.
But on a smart farm, you can use the right amount of water and other chemicals whenever and wherever needed. Food prices are falling as agricultural costs fall and the use of these chemicals is reduced.
Today, smart farms offer better ways to increase productivity while minimizing wastage of chemicals, water and other elements used on the farm.
The result is that you do not have to expose the environment to harmful harmful chemicals, if you can use them sparingly or only when absolutely necessary. As a result, chemicals do not enter rivers and generally do not deposit in the environment. Obviously, using less fertilizers and chemicals in agriculture will give people a better future and healthier food.
Smart agriculture is setting the stage for the “Third Green Revolution”, which refers to the combined use of information and communication technologies. The combination includes devices such as precision equipment, IoT sensors and actuators, geolocation systems, drones and robots.
The IOT in agriculture helps to better control agricultural processes to reduce production risks and increases the ability to predict production outcomes. In addition, it helps farmers better plan and distribute the crop. Data on the exact amount of crops and the amount of crop to be harvested can help farmers reduce labor stress and waste.
In addition, mobile service providers and operators are modernizing their network infrastructure, bringing network resources to the edge and integrating remotely through technologies such as small cells and massive MIMOs to prepare for 5G launch. The smart farm will undoubtedly see the introduction of more technologies in the future, in addition to which more human needs will lead agriculture to smart farms.
Smart farming or precision farming and automation in farming activities help to reduce overall costs and increase yields, improve the quality and quantity of crops, as well as agricultural sustainability. In fact, agricultural intelligence, increased control over production leads to better cost management and reduced waste. For example, the ability to track crop growth or animal health abnormalities helps minimize the risk of losing resources and capital.
Using smart devices, multiple processes can be activated simultaneously. Simply put, automated services improve product quality and increase yields. Using this system, it is even possible to manage the delivery schedule to the market with the utmost precision.
