How Artificial Intelligence Is Transforming Agriculture
Agriculture is how humans started to mold nature according to their needs. Humanity may have come a long way since then, changing the ways and methods of farming, but the basic objective remains the same; improving the quality of crops.
With the continuous increase in global population and land becoming scarcer, there is a need for farming to become more efficient with fewer resources. The introduction of various Artificial Intelligence and machine learning solutions is helping to provide much-needed innovation in this traditional business function.
It is now common for tractors, sprayers, or combines to steer automatically through the field and apply fertilizers only where required. The combine harvester today can measure real-time harvest yield, helping farmers understand the high yield and low yield areas of the field.
