Horticulture is ever growing and keeps making progress. There are several new technologies that we see coming up in horticulture. It would be beneficial to discuss some of them and learn
One is the use of drones for pest and disease identification and management.
It is highly popular and is making a lot of progress in the field. Pests are a huge problem and pesticides have proven to be harmful to humans. This is the best alternative for it and an efficient one.
Automated irrigation is the next one we’re in awe of. Irrigation requires massive manpower. It saves a lot of time and is efficient at the same time. The farmer can use his time and energy into a lot more. Earlier, farmers depended on rain. Which was only arbitrary. Therefore, we needed an irrigation system that dies not exhaust the farmers but also gets the work done.
Heat management is an interesting one. Farmers can now increase their yield and produce better, bigger and more produce just by using the appropriate frequencies. They now have a chance to optimize the group of their produce and gain more from it.
We have seen the internet of things being put to use in a myriad of fields. It has applications in hortias well! Using your cell service, you can install sensors in your field! It can provide you with information like the soil moisture levels, humidity, temperature and much more. This technology can be really helpful in identifying weak spots in your farm and filling those gaps to get the best produce you can!
The last one is drying beads. It is usually used in tropical areas where the extreme humidity ruins the seeds and the farmers, obviously, have to face the brick of it. But drying beads is the solution to this problem! Not only have they proven to be helpful for drying seeds and preventing their deterioration, but they’re also reusable! They lead to higher seed germination rates and are a great solution for humidity.
The world is full of innovations, and now technology. Horticulture is an important aspect of agriculture. Technology along with horticulture can do wonders for humans!
