Significant role of artificial intelligence in agriculture

B. M. Rajesh, A. P. Shobana, S. Indhumathi


Using AI in agriculture has long been seen as one of the best ways to alleviate the shortage of food and adjust to the demands of an expanding population. An overview of AI's use in agronomic fields and its advancements in lab research are given in this paper. The review initially identifies two areas—soil management and weed management—where AI may be particularly useful. , and after that, the Internet of Things (IoT), a technology with enormous potential for use in the future, is discussed. Three issues must be resolved for AI-based technology to become widely used in markets: unequal mechanized distribution; algorithms' capacity to analyze massive amounts of data fast and accurately; and data security and privacy for both the devices and the data. Agricultural robots, aimed at various facets of the agricultural industry, have undergone significant development and enhancement in recent years. While acknowledging the challenges of implementing machines and algorithms tested in test environments in real-world settings, the review underscores a noteworthy advancement and a promising avenue for application. Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the agriculture industry in more ways than one. With the use of advanced technologies and data analysis, AI is transforming the way farmers approach their work
