What is AgTech?

AgTech stands for the application software and hardware technology in the field of agriculture. AgTech is an industry that offers versatile solutions for almost every step of the food manufacturing process. In traditional farming AgTech assits in the application of current technology and revolutionizing Agriculture. AgTech can assist in:

  • biotechnology
  • water management systems (e.g. soil moiusture sensors, smart irrigation techniques)
  • plant & soil analytics (soil sampling, disease modelling)
  • advanced machinery for crop monitoring (sensors, drones, satellite imagery)
  • production assistance and labour automation (robots)
  • predictive analytics (weather forecasting) or supply chain management

Also AgTech plays a role in novel farming and revolutionary farming systems.
