Key Drivers

Precision farming, also called “smart agriculture,” can generate high returns for the agricultural industry. This type of farming helps farmers combat the adverse effects of nature on crops by collecting geospatial data on the soil, livestock, and plants. Precision farming helps reduce waste by providing information on irrigation water, liquid fertilizers, nutrients, herbicides, and pesticides. Innovative agricultural tools are implemented to increase business efficiency by automating processes and improving output by reducing farming costs. Business-minded farmers are adopting precision and smart agriculture tools to boost crop yields and profit margins.

The rapidly expanding adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technology in agriculture enables farmers to better monitor the growth of their crops by providing them with real-time support via IoT applications. In addition, the elimination of pesticides and fertilizers in precision farming techniques brought about by adopting IoT-based devices in the agricultural sector led to further improvements in crop or soil health.

Growth Opportunities

AI-based applications and tools assist farmers in carrying out controlled and accurate farming by providing them with the necessary information or guidance regarding using fertilizers, water management, crop rotation, pest control, soil type, optimal planting, and nutrition management. Tools based on AI are used for pest control in agricultural settings. Using satellite imagery and AI algorithms to compare it to historical data, it can check if any insects have arrived on the farm and what species they are. AI is also used in weather forecasting to assist farmers in making decisions about what type of crop to grow and monitoring soil quality and nutrition levels. Precision farming techniques based on artificial intelligence assist farmers in keeping track of the health of their crops, resulting in a higher-quality harvest.

Regional Analysis

North America is the most advanced region in agricultural technologies. North American countries are far ahead of the rest of the world in adopting digital technologies that go beyond traditional farm machinery and services for more efficient crop production. Farming practices that are more sustainable and profitable are gradually transforming the global agricultural industry. North America has been an early adopter of newer technologies to meet rising food demand.
