How is Incorporation of Artificial Intelligence Favoring Autonomous Farm Equipment Manufacturers?

Adoption of artificial intelligence is favoring autonomous farm equipment manufacturers owing to its unlimited advantages, such as-

  • Capability of precision farming
  • Usage of predictive analysis to optimize quality crop production
  • Advanced solutions for timely harvesting, optimum planting, and soil & water management

The European Commission (EC) puts forward a European approach to artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics in order to boost farming and precision agriculture. The EC has also taken an initiative to develop Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) framework for product optimization in the agriculture sector. Such initiatives are further strengthening the base of potential industry players.

What are the Key Challenges Faced by Manufacturers?

Despite being highly sought-after for their efficiency and precision, there are a few restraining factors faced by autonomous farm equipment manufacturers. For instance,

  • Costly and complex production cycle
  • Incorporation of AI and other cutting-edge technologies incurs additional costs
  • Requires expert handling and maintenance
  • Lack of knowledge may have negative impacts on production capacity and quality of crops

Also, the outbreak of the pandemic affected manufacturing companies due to shortage in supply of raw materials, unavailability of labor, financial crisis, and decline in demand.

However, with the adoption of the new normal and increase in R&D activities to minimize disadvantages, suppliers of autonomous farm equipment are expected to come across higher growth scope over the coming years.
