Smart Farming: Improving Produce Quality and Quantity
Agricultural yield has surged since the implementation of smart farming solutions. The quality and the quantity of produce has improved and increased substantially. Let's review the many solutions smart farming has to offer.
2. Smart Pest Management: Wrongful quantity and increased amounts of pesticide spraying can result in an infected crop. Data analysis of the soil, the speed of produce growth, and weather and temperature patterns are factors that can attract a swarm of locusts or other insects. Pesticides also help increase yield, but a balance needs to be achieved before irreversible damage is incurred. Monitoring of the same plays an important factor in determining if pesticides need to be sprayed. Additionally, once the recommended dosage has been administered, anything extra affects the fertility of the soil and damages the produce. Swarming season cannot be avoided, but care can be taken to minimize the damage that crops face. Last year, in Idaho alone, few locations witnessed a high Mormon cricket population. It reached a high level of 70 per square yard.
"From farm to fork" is the new adage which is being followed by those who have implemented smart farming. This sector used to be brimming with toil and trouble but has now been revamped into a well-oiled machine. Farmers and cattle owners can now obtain real-time information about their crops and cattle, then use this information to maximize their yield. Smart farming continues to be one of the most rapidly developing sectors, offering maximum profit and increased quality and quantity. All one needs to do is implement the same.
