HOW WILL THE FUTURE OF FARMING LOOK LIKE?

Since the global population is growing at a fast pace, producing and supplying enough food might become a challenge in the future.

Therefore, software company Microsoft is cooperating with the US state of North Dakota as well as with farmers and companies to test new methods for the agriculture of the future in their “Grand Farm” project. The aim is to help achieve sustainable and efficient food production. In addition to AI algorithms for data-based cultivation, IoT (Internet of Things) solutions, broadband radio links and drones are to be used. The goal is to enable farmers to monitor their farmland better, to find the right time for sowing, water supply and fertilization as well as to obtain harvest forecasts. We are genuinely curios how the food of the future will be supplied.
