Agriculture offers food to the 7 billion global population. The global climate change and increasing pollution creates havoc on the environment and negatively impacts agricultural output. Sensing technology is now increasingly being applied in agriculture to create ‘intelligent farms’.
Infoholic analyst opines that advanced farming will bring about a paradigm shift in the way traditional farming has been practiced till date. Advanced farming involves applying technology to improve cultivation. Advanced farming systems will increase production and will also result in better crops. Technology has invaded the agricultural market as well. New technological applications are being used in rearing of animals and in improving crop yield. GPS technology is mostly used in agricultural field to monitor soil condition, tracking of the livestock, tractor monitoring, and VRT.
Infoholic’s analyst estimates that the advanced farming market will witness a CAGR of 13.4% during the forecast period 2016–2022.
High Precision Positioning Systems comprised 29% of the market, followed by VRT (Variable Rate Technology) at 20% in 2016. Technological growth has contributed to the growth of the overall market. VRT market is predicted to reach $2.31 billion by 2022 from $1.08 billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 13.5%. In application terms, major share of the revenue comes from livestock farming at 31.23% followed by Horticulture at 21.77% in 2016. Livestock farming is predicted to reach $3.32 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 13.4%.
