The good news is real farms are far cooler than that — in fact, they’re flat-out amazing. The modern farm is more sci-fi than pastoral, loaded up with cutting-edge tech and smart thinking.
And it’s not just for show. Farmers embrace new tools in order to meet the demands of a changing world. With most of the world’s suitable farmland already in use, farmers need new ways to produce more food on each acre of land.
Enter “digital farming.” Simply put, digital farming means bringing in the techy big guns — satellites! artificial intelligence! robots! — to conserve resources, produce more food, and lower costs.
