Agriculture has been facing major challenges like lack of irrigation, change in temperature, groundwater density, food wastage, cold storage, and much more. The technology will be useful in helping farmers in high yielding and having a better seasonal crop at regular interval.

In this digital transformation age, technology companies across the world have been developing the best solutions based on agriculture technology (AgTech) to enhance production. Digital transformation and technology adoption have brought many radical changes in many sectors including agriculture. It is speculated that the implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in agriculture will transform the sector. Let’s see how AI will transform the agriculture sector:

Prediction

Many countries including India, the farmers are dependent on monsoon for their cultivation. They mainly depend on the predictions from various departments over the weather condition, especially for rain-fed cultivation. The AI technology will be useful to predict the weather and other conditions related to agriculture like land quality, groundwater, crop cycle, and pest attack, etc. The accurate projection or prediction with the help of the AI technology will reduce most of the concerns of the farmers.

 

Data & Sensors

AI-driven sensors are very useful to extract important data related to agriculture. The data will be useful in enhancing production. In agriculture, there is a huge scope for these sensors. Agriculture scientist can derive data like quality of the soil, weather and groundwater level, etc; these will be useful to improve the cultivation process.  AI empowered sensors can also be installed in the robotic harvesting equipment in order to get the data. It is speculated that AI-based advisories would be useful to increase production by 30 percent.

Crop Damage and Pest Control

The biggest challenge to farming is the crop damage due to any kind of disasters including the pest attack. Most of the time due to lack of the proper information farmers lose their crops. In this cyber age, the technology would be useful for the farmers to protect their cultivation from any kind of attacks.

AI-enabled image recognition will be useful in this direction. Many companies have implemented drones to monitor the production and to identify any kind of pest attacks. Such activities have been successful many times, which gives the inspiration to have a system to monitor and protect crops.

Cultivation and Market

AI is likely to transform agriculture and the market in the next few years. The technology has been useful for the farmers to understand various types of hybrid cultivations which would yield them more income within the limited time frame. The proper implementation of AI in agriculture will help the cultivation process and to create an ambiance for the market. As per the data with leading institutions, there is a huge wastage of the food across the world and using the right algorithms, this problem can also be addressed which will not only save the time and money but it will lead to sustainable development.  

There are better prospects for digital transformation in agriculture backed by leveraging technologies like AI. But, it all depends on the huge data which is quite difficult to gather because of the production process which happens once or twice in a year. However, the farmers cope up with changing scenario to bring digital transformation in the agriculture by implementing AI.
