Leapfrogging to precision agriculture
Thursday, Oct 5, 2023
How will we meet the nutritional needs of a growing population using fewer hectares per ton of food, with lower labor availability? Conventional agriculture will not get us there. With AI and machine-learning integrated into modern agricultural solutions, we can leapfrog to precision agriculture and encourage soil regenerative practices, driven by actionable data. For example, sensor-supported precision agriculture for efficient water (80-90% reduction) and nutrient delivery (80% less fertilizer use) can cap input costs while significantly improving production output through data-driven harvesting and planting schedules.
