  • Smart farming is about using the new technologies that emerged in agriculture and livestock at the beginning of the fourth industrial revolution to increase production volume and quality by making maximum use of resources and minimizing environmental impact. Also, the implementation of technology in agriculture and livestock will make it possible to improve food security around the world.
  • The use of smart farming can assist farmers in reducing waste and increasing efficiency by integrating them into their operations. Trends such as increasing requirements for crop yield and increasing demand to combat climate change further contribute to the growth of the Europe smart farming market. Varying weather circumstances influence soil quality and crop yields. Therefore, farmers in Europe are adopting innovations and technologies that can optimize production costs and lessen the harmful effects of greenhouse gases, such as methane, on the environment.
  • The use of smart farming technologies has positive impact of agriculture operations and livestock farming. These technologies offer benefits such as increased efficiency & productivity, water saving, reduced costs, pest detection and animal health, better sustainability, and others. In addition, smart farming helps farmers better understand the important factors such as water, topography, orientation, vegetation, and soil types.

Impact of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19, followed by the European country’s lockdown in 2020-2021, disrupted the function of the Europe smart farming market. It affected the production process and supply chain networks and resulted in losses for the manufacturers in the Europe smart farming market. The unavailability of labour and lack of raw materials such as sensors, semiconductors, and other components were the key factors that limited production. However, production activities gradually started by the end of 2020 as the governments of different countries provided some relief from the lockdown.
