Each year, industries continue to evolve and make changes that maximize profitability or improve customer experiences. The agriculture industry has continuously evolved with different consumer demands and different agricultural practices have emerged. One such demand is in line with the awareness around sustainability and being eco-friendly. People are starting to dig deep into farming practices and many consumers are sourcing agricultural produce that has a low carbon footprint or leaves minimal damage to the environment.
Consumers are also sourcing for organic produce as awareness on health and wellness continues to increase.
Technology is also being utilized more often especially with Artificial Intelligence on the rise. At the moment there are robots that can even detect unwanted plants and spray them with herbicides. Farmers can also monitor their crops from multiple perspectives and with less effort as drone technology continues to be harnessed. In the fields, sensors and satellite imagery are among the technology being used to provide wide area coverage.
