Nowadays, sensibility and technology to "green" things are more attractive than you might think. Technological developments including digital transformation and the Internet of Things have spurred many innovations in the agricultural sector.

The following are examples of 7 innovations that already exist and streamline the processes in the agricultural sector:

1. Software for Modern Orchard Management

There have been many emerging softwares that help farm leaders to collect, describe, and provide further information on rice fields or gardens and related products. These softwares are equipped with weather-sensing, providing data making it easier for farmers to make decisions throughout the season.

2.  Yield Monitoring and Estimation

In the past, to obtain data on the size of the fruit or the number of yields, farmers did it manually by counting one by one. Thanks to digital transformation, farmers are now more helped with the emergence of technology that automates yield monitoring and calculation.

5.  IoTs in Farming

In agriculture, Internet of Things (IoT) systems utilize soil and weather sensors to provide insights that can be processed into applicable decisions. In addition, the IoT system can also help farmers to minimize pest disturbances through data insights.

6. Smart Agriculture Machines

Machines have been widely used in the agricultural sector. However, with today's technological developments, most machines are already integrated with data and automated systems. Sensors and remote control have enabled farmers to drive their tractors and machines without leaving the house.

7.  Eco-Friendly plant production products

The use of chemicals will be minimized in planting activities. The presence of innovations such as customized biofertilizers, urine-based fertilizers, and algae-and-microorganisms-based fertilizers is one of the most interesting and comforting trends in the agricultural sector.
