Towards smarter farming

By 2020, it is estimated that over 75 million agricultural IoT devices will be in use. The average farm will generate 4.1 million data points each day in 2050, up from 190,000 in 2014*

The Smart Farm promises unprecedented productivity and efficiency gains, whilst also delivering workforce optimization and improved quality of life.

Putting Datato Work

How might we establish a flow of data that better connects the farm with the people and businesses that support and rely on them?

Data is the backbone of the Smart Farm and when used to make informed decisions, has the power to deliver higher yields and better quality.

Data enabled agribusinesses are better able to identify opportunities for process improvement, cost reduction, revenue generation and disruption.

More open and connected data enables producers to satisfy consumer demand to know where food comes from and how it was produced.

Smarter Farming- a global necessity

Population and income growth will be the two biggest drivers of food demand over the next 30 years. The world’s population is expected to rise to 9.1 billion people in 2050, up from 7.4 billion in 2016. To meets the needs of the larger population, food production must increase by 70% when compared to 2007 levels.**

Over the next 10 years, we will continue to see income growth in developing countries, accelerated action against climate change, and trends towards healthier diets. Consumers will have a significantly greater impact on how the agricultural value chain operates and will form a deeper understanding of the relationship between the where, when, what and how food is produced versus consumed. This being the intrinsic value of food.

Structurally, farms will change. The number of ‘mega farms’ will increase, powered by precision agriculture, and the Sharing Economy will influence how machinery, labor and operations are managed.

Truly Smart Farming is the key to meeting the changing demands of the global population as well as unlocking, yet unrealized opportunities for efficiency and production quality.

If the results being achieved in trials taking place across Europe as part of the Internet of Food and Farm 2020 are a glimpse into what can be achieved with Smart Farming, efforts should be doubled, if not tripled today.
