Agricultural technologies are of particular interest to many clients. According to the International Food Policy Research Institute, judicious application of agricultural technology can increase global crop production by up to 67 percent by 2050 and reduce the price of food significantly due to increased crop productivity.
There is a rising demand for precision agriculture technology to assure best quality, quantity and financial returns on crops. Simultaneously, a decrease in the cost of remote sensors coupled with advances in cloud-computing technology, and smart access devices are making precision agriculture more cost-effective for farmers.
Farming and ranching have evolved from its labour-intensive models into sophisticated business. There are GPS-controlled harvesting and tilling equipment as well as precision computerized facility control systems.
Farmers need equipment solutions that help them stay competitive in the modern agricultural environment. Innovation in the agricultural industry is being driven by influences from other industries. Some examples are:
Perception and sensing technologies that help farmers interpret the external environment and make more informed decisions. Connectivity technologies which enables equipment to easily communicate large amounts of data to operators and other machines.
