Here we will discuss 7 Trends In Agriculture To Watch In 2022. Globally, agriculture is the backbone of many economies. Therefore empowering agriculture as a vehicle for inclusive growth while increasing rural income and stabilizing food security. But this can only be achieved when modern technology is used efficiently.
Here is #Cropway‘s views on what the future holds for agriculture sector:
1. Aerial Imaging Is being used more frequently
Farmers will be able to manage their crops more accurately when data collected from precision agriculture equipment is utilised, in turn resulting to improved revenues.
2. Water Management as a priority
As more farmers are now aware of importance of water management. They will use technology as an enabler to manage water better and handle the extremities caused by water shortage.
3. Agriculture that is regenerative
While a few experts disagree on whether regenerative agriculture may or may not help mitigate climate change many scientists agree that it definitely improves soil health and fertility. A comprehensive strategy is underway in many agriculture driven nations to promote, replenish, and conserve biodiversity and natural resources in improving the overall ecosystem.
4. Digitalisation of Information
COVID-19 makes it necessary for farmers and agri industry to migrate from in-person meetings to digital meetings in many circumstances. For example, in Cropway through our farm-to-fork platform, we enable farmers to sell their produce directly to consumers, using technology as a bridge to provide them with transparent access to pricing information, and enabling them to gain enhanced traceability.
5. Accurate Yield Estimates
Before crops are harvested, predictive analytics will allow farmers to anticipate yields fast and reliably. Farmers will be able to get access to consumers for all of their produce thanks to correct forecasts, in-turn reducing the food waste and improving profitability.
6. Field Mapping
Field mapping enables for more precise planting, spraying, and harvesting, which is no surprise. Also read this post on Optimised Productivity with Geospatial Technology.
7. Data Integration
Even if you have data on yields, input prices, soil type, and weather conditions, putting it to use requires integration. Furthermore, this information may be utilised in real time to make modifications, such as changing planting depth based on moisture availability.
