Agriculture is a $5 trillion industry and, as the global population is expected to reach more than 9 billion by 2050, agricultural production will need to more than double to fulfill the growing food demand. As the insufficiency of resources is already an acknowledged issue, a smarter and more productive approach for the supply-demand chain is needed.
Artificial intelligence technologies can be used in agriculture to improve a wide range of activities in the entire food supply chain. AI can be used in combination with machine learning to analyze soil and a crop’s health conditions and produce healthy crops with a higher level of productivity as well as to provide guidance to farmers about water management, crop rotation, timely harvesting, type of crop to be grown, optimum planting, pest attacks, nutrition management.
AI can help the agriculture industry to meet the challenges that the next years are expected to present it with.
