Key Trends In Agtech

Rachel Smith, Applied Technology Review | Thursday, July 29, 2021

The world may have slowed down in recent years owing to the pandemic, but it hasn’t stopped technology from progressing towards something more significant daily. The AgTech sector has experienced tremendous growth over the previous decade and continues to do so each year. Even while many businesses have struggled during the pandemic, the AgTech sector has progressed even during challenging situations.

Artificial Intelligence has provided agriculture with effective tools and procedures to use, allowing it to reach new heights of potential worldwide. AI has transformed agriculture, and this discovery has had a significant impact on how the food and farming industries operate. Technology has changed how farmers view food and made customers more aware of their intake and food quality.

AI has simplified life through data-driven simplicity, making complicated problems appear straightforward and simple. Agriculture is no longer a painting from the past, the colors, brushes, and canvas have all changed. Indoor farming, vertical farming, and hydroponics have made people question what contemporary technology may achieve in agriculture.


Carbon sequestration, commonly known as Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), has numerous advantages when applied properly. These advantages serve to mitigate climate-related harm to human health while also conserving soil fertility and health. Soil carbon accumulation improves overall soil fertility and productivity by promoting soil particle aggregation, soil water conservation, microbial activity, nutrient cycling, and other key soil activities.


One of the most significant advantages that edge computing has brought to agriculture in recent years is the capability to remotely track various parts of a farm’s agricultural activity. Sensor networks, which track soil, weather, humidity, temperature, acidity, and pH levels, can range from a few randomly placed sensors to numerous connected devices.


The concept of a driverless wheel on farmland may seem far-fetched at this time, but it will soon become a reality. Even though the biggest application will be in the mainstream commute, agriculture will also feature autonomous tractors, drone-controlled robotics, and remote-controlled harvesters faster than ever before. This will be especially useful during the critical period of the season when farmland must be monitored continuously. Farmers will be able to use digitized technologies to access and manage activities on their field from a distance.
