Today's agriculture routinely uses sophisticated technologies such as robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial images, and GPS technology. These advanced devices and precision agriculture and robotic systems allow businesses to be more profitable, efficient, safer, and more environmentally friendly.
Research & Development
Increasing of agriculture products is of importance so that research and development in this branch considers as one of the most important infrastructure which develops production growth. Agriculture provides new and improved findings regarding inputs and production methods hence R&D efficiency increases and leads to potential creation in increasing of agriculture products and reduces pressure on natural resources. In most developing countries agriculture products has increased per farmers which exhibits the efficiency of novel technology application thus basic practicing of R&D in the field of agriculture is really important.
Seed sector has grown into an industry with lot of employment potential. Technically qualified persons with managerial skills are required to man the seed industry.Improved seed is the most vital input in agriculture. Good quality seeds of improved varieties and hybrids have been playing crucial role in boosting agricultural production, and in fact it is the most important factor for vertical growth in crop productivity. It is said that good seed does not cost, it only pays. Quality seeds remain to impact agricultural productivity in a sustainable way. New and improved varieties of seeds are new technology for agricultural production. Improved seeds also carry new technology from laboratory to the farmers’ fields, as it is the medium through which plant breeding and biotechnological innovations are transferred to farmers.
Due to labor shortages and increased need to feed the global population agriculture robots are becoming common place for farmers.
