In this 21st century, farmers need to learn and use modern technology-based practices to face a variety of modern and more complicated challenges. However, the utilization of technology in agriculture is still very limited in certain areas.
There are various ways of using technology to increase farmers' resilience to compete in the global market. Here are some steps that can be put into practice:
1. Digitizing Various Day-to-Day Task
The development of technology has made it easier for farmers to complete their tasks. The use of digital applications and creating digital checklists can benefit farmers, starting from checking daily tasks and the quality of the plants to determining the best time to harvest.
2. Utilizing Technology to Face Climate Change
Increasing modern-day farmer's resilience in the era of global warming is not an easy task. A farmer must start practicing climate-smart agriculture such as cultivating the genetic-engineered crops that are more resistant to extreme weather.
3. Establishing A System of Checks and Controls
Today, farmers are obliged to fulfill certain standards to ensure their product meets the consumer's needs. Therefore, establishing a system of checks and controls throughout the entire production process is a must to accomplish those goals.
4. Practicing Smart and Sustainable Farming
Practicing smart and sustainable farming based on weather conditions and satellite imaging will improve farmer's resilience significantly. It is proven to improve both crop quality and quantity, monitor the plant's growth in real-time, and reduce environmental damage.
Since global food security depends on those who produce food, improving farmer's resilience is an important task.
