Industry relevance and need
Agriculture and farming are the backbone of the economic system of a country. It provides food and raw materials, along with employment opportunities to a large percentage of the population. Historical civilizations and modern life as we know it would not exist without agriculture. It was through the cultivation of nutritional food that the structure of early societies could diversify and focus on various tasks.
Agriculture might be perceived as old-fashioned and low-tech, but farmers have worked hand-in-hand with technology for generations—whether it’s large machines like tractors and combines or complex chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides. Right now, the field is in the midst of profound change as advanced technologies including green chemistries, robotics, artificial intelligence, IoT, autonomous vehicles, machine learning, regenerative agriculture and biomimetics transform how farms look and function. It might seem like the stuff of science fiction, but autonomous vehicles, indoor farming and drone pollination are becoming more common throughout the sector
