With the whole world being driven by technology, why should agriculture stay behind?
“According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the world will need to
produce 70% more food in 2050, to feed the growing population.
Factors such as climate change, limited arable land, water scarcity, labor demand, distress
migration, crop failures dues to outbreak in pests and diseases, and other variables will further aggravate this demand for global food production.”
This demand can be met with technology which has and will continue to play a major role in
smart farming in the coming years. More and more farmers, government institutions, agricultural companies are looking up to IoT to help them meet the growing food demand in an easier and faster way. In fact, with the help of IoT and data analytics in farming will help meet the industry challenges faster and in a cost-efficient manner.
