LONDON, June 19, 2018 /CNW/ -- Frost & Sullivan, the growth partnership company, announced today that it will host a live, complimentary Growth Innovation Leadership (GIL) briefing, "Top 5 Agriculture Technologies Improving Productivity and Driving Growth", on Thursday, 28th June at 11 am EDT. The webinar will offer Frost & Sullivan's expert insight from Shrinivas Tukdeo, Program Manager, and Sharath Thirumala, Research Analyst, TechVision Team at Frost & Sullivan.
Recent developments in precision agriculture solutions are facilitating crop yield data collection, nutrient management, satellite aerial imagery and variable rate fertilizer applications, creating new opportunities for farmers across the globe. Emerging technologies such as vertical farming with LED indoor lighting systems and agricultural robotics are improving the quality of farm products and simultaneously stimulating the sustainability of crops. Water conservation advancements, enhanced-efficiency fertilizers, pest management and waste upcycling increase the yield per hectare of agricultural land by providing a futuristic approach which results in increased output and the conservation of the environment.
"There is a compelling case for urgent action in improving the current global agriculture practices in order to meet the unprecedented rise in demand for the increasing population and to mitigate climate changes", said Tukdeo. "Incorporating new technologies in agricultural systems will help reduce the current stress on farmers and also facilitate the economic improvement of the farmers".
