The world population is growing to nearly 10 billion people by the middle of this century. This growth, combined with the accelerating urbanisation, will require agricultural production to double. To succeed, we need smart farming solutions from farm to fork for healthy, fairly produced, and sustainable food, feed and fibre. Technology devised specifically for farming is still in a nascent stage, with most agriculture technology companies having been founded and funded in the past decade. Yet, it will have a catalysing impact on the agrarian sector.
Agri-tech channels innovation to provide predictive capabilities that can help farmers be prepared in advance to mitigate any potential risks. The utilisation of technology such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, geo-tagging and satellite monitoring ensures meaningful insights to stakeholders at different levels of the agroecosystem.
Once a farm is digitised, all its operations become traceable, quantifiable and transparent. Data is constantly being collected across the chain, and this means that agribusinesses can assess various value and supply chain challenges. Advancements in computing capacity help process the data in minimal time, ensuring that analysis and subsequent action can be taken quickly and decisively.
Agricultural companies are increasingly leveraging this data derived from agriculture technology platforms to achieve better yields and enhanced business outcomes for both the business and for their clients. The benefits will also spill over to the retailers and consumers, who can easily verify the authenticity and quality of what they are buying and selling.
