Emergent Technology in Agriculture:

Emergent Technology in Agriculture Team :- Akarsh Venugopal Amit Dugar Ankit Ahlawat N.H. Sagar Harit Jaichand Himanshu Singhal By :-Col Mukteshwar Prasad( Retd ) As conceived and planned by the team loaded for general awaeness

Problems Encountered in Conventional Agriculture Practices:

How do we solve these problems?:

How do we solve these problems? Urban farming Vertical / Multi-level farming Supply based on confirmed Demand (integration with local retailers via web). Plant nourishment by using data on plant growth and mapping plant growth. Extensive use of techniques like Aeroponics

What is Urban & Vertical Farming?:

What is Urban & Vertical Farming? Urban farming is based on the concept of production at the place of consumption. Vertical farming is growing up rather than growing horizontally. Optimizes space utilization.

What is Aeroponics?:

What is Aeroponics ? Aeroponics is the process of growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium

Integration of Aeroponics+Vertical Farming:

Integration of Aeroponics+Vertical Farming

Some Facts About Aeroponics:

Some Facts About Aeroponics 90% Less WATER 3% of LAND is required Drastic fall in harmful TRANSPORT emissions & Cost. Less requirement of ENERGY Less LABOUR Intensive Near elimination of HARMFUL PESTICIDES.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How Aeroponics address major problems of agriculture Solution to Arable Land: - Vertical cultivation Solution to uncertainty of climatic condition: - Less water requirement  Low dependence on monsoons. Solution to inefficient farming practices: - Economical use of Seeds, no Insecticide, drastic reduction of bulky equipment. Solution to depleted soil: - Does not require soil for plant growth.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How Aeroponics address major problems of agriculture Solution to storage of food grain: - Reduces cost of storage space  as veg. & fruits are freshly plucked. Solution to Farm implements: - No requirement of heavy farm equipment. Solution to transportation: - Food consumed where its produced  major reduction in cost.

Other Areas and Emerging Technologies in Agriculture and Their Application:

Other Areas and Emerging Technologies in Agriculture and Their Application

PowerPoint Presentation:

Information Search Cost by Stage of Farming In a study that compared transaction costs throughout an extended period, 15.2 percent of the total cost of farming was transactional, and of that, 70 percent was informational (as opposed to, say, the cost of transporting crops to market).

PowerPoint Presentation:

Technologies changing agriculture 1. Telematics Imagine pulling up on your mobile a map that shows how much product has been applied or how much crop harvested, and even if a piece of equipment is ready to break down.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Technologies changing agriculture 2. RFID technology Radio frequency identification, or RFID, has been widely used in livestock to identify animals. But global futurist Jack Uldrich says use of the tagging technology will expand to crops as the technology gets exponentially better, faster and cheaper. New Holland already promote the use of RFID tag technology for their large square balers, both as a way to track bales and also as a way to understand their physical properties such as weight and moisture level.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Fujitsu rolls out cloud-based big data platform for farmers To help farmers in Japan better manage its crops and expenses, Fujitsu is rolling out a cloud-based platform that collects information from a network of cameras and sensors across the country. Japan's network of agricultural sensors tracks things like rainfall, humidity and soil temperature. Farmers using the new cloud service from Fujitsu will have access to this data as well as historical crop data, and they will be able to enter data on their own crops via smartphones and tablets. The goal is to help improve the efficiency of the country's agriculture infrastructure and perhaps reduce its reliance on food imports, particularly as the farming population ages.
