  • Autonomous agriculture or farming is the use of autonomous or self-driving machinery and equipment in agriculture. This involves the use of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, sensors, GPS, and other systems to enable farm equipment to operate without direct human control or guidance. Autonomous farming equipment can include tractors, combines, harvesters, and other machinery that are used in various farming operations. These machines can be programmed to perform specific tasks, such as planting, harvesting, tilling, and spraying, without the need for human intervention.
  • The use of autonomous agriculture equipment has a positive impact on agriculture operations and livestock farming. These technologies offer benefits such as increased efficiency and productivity, water saving, reduced costs, data collection and analysis, increased safety, better sustainability, and others. In addition, autonomous agriculture equipment helps farmers to better understand important factors such as water, topography, orientation, vegetation, and soil analysis.

Impact of COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, research & development has slowed down owing to the lack of funding, halted manufacturing activities, and raw material supply chain disruptions. In addition, the positive impact of COVID-19 has been seen in autonomous farming solutions adoption, such as autonomous tractors, robots, drones, harvesters, planters, and sensors by farmers owing to the lack of workers, which is resulted in an increase in demand for autonomous agriculture equipment worldwide.
