Helping agriculture with modern techniques and biotechnological tricks


Modern farms and agricultural operations are vastly different from those of a few decades ago, thanks to technological advances.

Agriculture today employs advanced technologies such as robotics, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial photographs, and GPS technology regularly. Also, businesses can be more profitable, productive, safer, and environmentally friendly.

Farmers are no longer required to apply water, fertilisers, and pesticides to entire fields in a regular manner. Instead, they can use the bare minimum of chemicals and focus on very precise locations, or even treat plants individually. Increased crop yields reduced usage of water, fertiliser, and pesticides, resulting in lower food prices. Natural habitats are less impacted. Less chemical discharge onto rivers and groundwater and enhanced worker protection.

Furthermore, robotic technologies allow for more accurate monitoring and management of natural resources like air and water quality. It also provides farmers more control over the production, processing, transport, and storage of plants and animals.

Agricultural circumstances are safer, as well as provide safer foods

Also, the environmental and ecological impact is reduced. NIFA improves agricultural technology and guarantees that it is available to the nation’s agricultural businesses by supporting it. Research and development in the physical sciences, engineering, and computer sciences at the fundamental level.

An applied study that examines ways to deploy technologies in a cost-effective and less disruptive manner. Farmers receive assistance and training on how to employ new technologies.

Scientists are creating new technology to address the world’s complicated agricultural concerns. To address the requirements of a growing population, NIFA programmes promote cutting-edge research to help farmers produce bigger amounts of safer and higher-quality food, fibre, and fuel.

NIFA projects are assisting the country in achieving energy independence, agricultural biotechnology employs biological processes to create farming-related technologies and goods. Faced with a growing global population, the agriculture business is looking for ways to produce enough food to feed everyone.

Biotechnology has been used by more than 17 million farmers around the world to boost crop yield, avoid insect damage, and lessen the environmental impact of farming.

Biotechnology advancements have given farmers new alternatives for reacting to market demands and environmental challenges, technologies serve consumers in a variety of ways. Pesticides are used less frequently, there will be less reliance on petroleum.

The USDA is responsible for ensuring that biotechnology plants and goods developed from them are safe to grow and use.  NIFA contributes to this goal by providing money and technical assistance.
