Precision Ag Technology

The future of precision ag technology is here and offering a wealth of ag data.

As the industry continues to adapt and evolve, there is no question that the future of agriculture lies within the technology created to support it. Not only does agriculture technology make farming and ranching easier, but it makes it more efficient. The possibilities for precision ag and other high-tech farming equipment are seemingly endless. They offer a variety of data that can improve farm productivity and profitability, while also supporting environmental stewardship efforts along the way. 

Three Ways Precision Ag Tech is Helping American Farmers

1. GPS and Yield Mapping Tools

Developed in the 1990s, yield monitoring capabilities have been enhanced in the last several decades due mostly in part to the increasing use of agricultural drones, also called unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Experts believe that agricultural drones, working with other agricultural devices like crop sensors, will be able to assess crop damage, identify disease and stress, and give yield estimates.

2. Smart Cloud Computing Software

Building off the increasing use of yield mapping GPS drones, the ag industry is also starting to place a focus on agricultural devices that gather and store data from sensors. This captured data is then stored in cloud computing software that makes precision ag data more accessible to others in the industry. In doing so, farmers are able to gain valuable insights into data analytics and make data-backed decisions for their operations.

3. AI Farming Robotics

The newest innovation in the world of precision ag is the concept of AI robotic farming technology. Automated farm technology has already been integrated into most sectors – some more than others. Overall, automation in farming utilized in the livestock, field crops, and dairy industries has led to a decline in waste, decreased ecological impact, and lessened the physical demand for farmers.
