Over the years, agriculture and technology were working hand-in-hand to develop sustainable farming techniques. This resulted in the invention of numerous advanced farm technologies that revolutionized the agricultural sector. These technologies made it possible to overcome the limitations of traditional agriculture methods and replace them with more efficient and effective technologies.
Technology has improved all the aspects of agriculture from planting the seed to harvesting the crops. Advanced farm technologies that helped the farmers to get better yield from their crops include genetics, monitoring and surveillance systems, communication and data analysis, etc. They made it possible for farmers to learn more about their crops and apply essentials like water, fertilizers, etc. at the right time and in the right amount. It also facilitated the monitoring of crops thereby making it possible to identify the problems and diseases with the crops in the early stages itself.
There are a lot of barriers in the agricultural field that technology has helped to overcome. Some of them are listed below:
The young generation of today is not much interested in agriculture like their ancestors. Hence, the workforce has been declining from the agricultural field over the years. But these problems have been successfully solved with the help of technology. With the aid of new technological advancements, it is possible to do cultivation without much human workforce. There are different machines that are used for planting seeds, monitoring crops, harvesting the yield, etc. Hence, it needs minimum human interference for farming.
Some plant diseases that spread quickly can destroy your cultivation entirely. It may be difficult to identify the presence of these diseases until they had done the damage. But with the help of agriculture technology, it is easy to monitor each and every crop so that you can identify the diseases in the early stages and it will help you to take preventive measures before they spread to other crops.
Lack of Training
When it comes to traditional agriculture, the farmers should have good knowledge about their crops and should be aware of how to handle unexpected circumstances. Hence, the lack of knowledge and training can adversely affect your yield.
As the technology has progressed agricultural techniques became automated, therefore, it will help you to manage and control your crops in a technological way so that it will be possible for you to deal with any circumstance even if you do not have vast knowledge or training in this field.
