Agriculture and aquaculture are well on their way to turning into high-tech industries as advancements in machinery and a growing number of startups show. New concepts already exist like smart & precision farming, crop efficiency, and vertical farming.
The value of smart farming lies in making farms, fields and aquatic more efficient. Emerging technologies in this field include software solutions, optimization devices, and process automation tools.
Although precision farming is related to smart farming, the concept goes much further. The farming management concept also known as Precision Agriculture or Site Specific Crop Management is based on observing, measuring and responding to inter and intra-field variability in crops.
Advanced robotics, automated machinery & drones are crucial to increasing the efficiency of agricultural production in the future.
