When it comes to agriculture technology, the CHS’s aim has been to look for methods to improve the products and services it provides to farmers. Recent collaborations have resulted in intriguing advancements at all stages of crop production, ranging from soil demands to fertiliser application speed.

There are five inventions that are already being used in farm areas:

  • Advanced soil sampling predicts issues: CHS has released Advanced Soil Analytics, based on Trace Genomics’ soil analytics expertise (ASA). The new soil analysis technique determines the amounts of five major pathogens that affect four important crops — maize, soybeans, wheat, and sugarbeets — as well as the amount of organic carbon in the soil.
  • How soil can help with carbon capture: Because of its ability to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by sequestering it in the soil, agriculture technology is seen as a primary solution to the problem of greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, there’s a race on to figure out how to encourage producers to trap more carbon while also getting compensated for it.
  • Get more data with drones: GIS software is used by field-scouting drones, which necessitates a lot of processing power via cloud-based computing. The latest breakthroughs made by Google and Amazon in processing massive data sets are assisting us in agriculture. This, combined with enhanced image recognition software, is allowing for the development of greater drone capabilities, particularly in predictive modelling.
  • Fleet information at your fingertips: Customers can receive text message updates at various stages of the process, such as when the applicator arrives at a field and when the job is completed, as well as safety or compliance information dependent on the goods used.
  • Driverless trucks increase efficiency: Autonomous vehicles have the potential to alleviate rural labour shortages while also increasing overall transportation efficiency. The military has thoroughly tested the technology, which is now being used to the construction and agriculture industries.
