Event Title

OPTIMIZING FARM MANAGEMENT THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF SMART AGRICULTURE AND THE IMPACT ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Session

Agriculture, Food Science and Technology

Description

Population growth, shrinking agricultural land areas, changing land use of agricultural lands, global warming, food shortages are the biggest challenges facing sustainable development worldwide. According to the growth trend, FAO reported that the world population would be reached 9.73 billion by 2050, and the increase will continue to reach 11.2 billion by 2100 Based on this challenge, the purpose of the study is to analyze the application and results of smart agriculture in addition to traditional production in different countries to recommend good practices. Analytical and comparative methods have been used, through research of the latest research activities, both in the form of research projects and scientific literature, whenever the results achieved so far, and the challenges still open, as technical as well as non-technical, and then look at existing and future solutions to overcome those barriers. Based on the findings Smart agriculture is based primarily on three platforms, namely science, innovation, and space technologies. Applied science on yield projections and probability maps for diseases and disasters based on a dense network of weather and climate data will optimally allow the cultivation of crops. Space technology can make agriculture more profitable for the farmer even in small parcels through improving soil quality, reducing the waste of water during irrigation, and sharing agricultural information with farmers. The technology will introduce innovations such as the use of drones in agriculture, precision processing in plants, utilizing efficiently all types of energy like smart wind and solar energy, artificial intelligence-based application of robotics. Smart agriculture is the future of the food production sector as well as novel processes to confirm the food safety of the world.
