Agriculture in India has been one of the most reliable and supporting sectors, which can be clearly made out of the fact that agriculture till date generates 60% of India’s total GDP and a major part of employment in the country. Agriculture sector however has faced some storms in the previous years, which is obviously not the end.
With the onset of 2019, new avenues being explored, it is going to be a golden beginning of a new era, which will demarcate the arrival of the Mechanizing the Indian Agriculture with new farming technologies.
As we know, the 21st century embarks the development of the best of the kind inventions and now it seems to be the turn of agricultural advancement with the onset of new farming technologies. This blog is in with reference to the upcoming extensions in the agriculture sector of India, specifically from the technological domain.
Following are some of the new farming technologies which are going to be observed in the year 2019:
Automated Robot Tractor
India has seen several new Farming Technologies in agriculture through advancement in sciences; the greatest of them have been Robot Tractor. Robot Tractor is a tractor that works on an automated basis, which means is a driver-less tractor. These tractors have been launched in the market however the expansion of the Automated Tractor industry is expected to occur in 2019. These tractors based on a new farming technology will be very advantageous for the farmers as they will directly increase efficiency. A simple way to analyze the productivity of this latest farming technology is through the fact that a single farmer would now be able to operate two tractors single handedly and at the same time. Not only this, the cabin or say the cockpit in technical terms has an inbuilt camera for better surveillance and proper usage.
India is on its way to move forward to the establishment of Precision Farming through advance farming technologies, which would yield desired and accurate results. One of the ways to achieve it is, use of Agricultural Sensors. There are various kinds of Sensors for the use in the Agricultural Sector which aid the farmer by providing data to monitor and optimize crops, as well as get adapted to changing environmental factors. Some of the sensors are, Location Sensors, Optical Sensors, Electrochemical Sensors, Mechanical Sensors, Dielectric Soil Moisture Sensors, Airflow Sensors, and Agricultural Weather Sensors; which are soon going to create a revolution in the agricultural sector.
Upon the digitalization scheme of the Indian Govt., Smartphone has been made available to a great number of masses spreading all over the country. This is now going to a boon for the agricultural sector since the new farming technologies are bringing the latest Smartphone Applications to the benefit of the farmer and his crop. Ventures like Disease Detection and Diagnosis, Fertilizer Calculator, Soil Study, Water Study, and Crop Harvest Readiness have been taken up by the applications and are going to aid the farmer to a great extent and all is a credit to these new farming technologies.
Special Seed Sensors
According to a recent update by the Indian Govt., studies and researches have led to an invention of a specific type of sensor which would be tracing seeds as its main domain. This would be a great scientific advancement in the field of farming technologies, since our country produces 3.80 million tones of seeds against a requirement of 3.50 million tones of seeds yearly. What stays untouched is the traceability of these seeds which leads to an overall decline in the production. The govt. believes if this task is achieved it would lead to great progress in the Agricultural Sector.
In the above readings, we can clearly see that the year 2019 is going to be a year of great development in the field of Farming Technologies. Tractorjunction.com is the platform which provides you all the information about the recent developments so that every farmer can avail best out of the ongoing practices. We bring to you not only the basic and general information but also ways to make it more applicable for you, so that you can really use that info to your benefit.
