What role does technology play in protecting farmers' profitability and the environment?
Farmers around the world are raising their voices and rebelling as a result of dwindling salaries, environmental laws, and import competition in 2024. Many farmers say that they are caught between competing public demands for low-cost food and environmentally responsible practices, while rising input costs have a considerable impact on their bottom line.

The most pressing concern for agriculture is how to continue producing more but better, and how to address climate change while increasing production.

As a result, technology is proving to be an important friend on this journey. Technology solutions assist farmers in optimizing their activities in order to overcome financial constraints and increase their well-deserved profits while also improving the environment.

Increased motivation to adopt technology

A decade of digitization in agriculture has passed, yet adoption among medium-sized and small farms has dropped substantially to less than 5% in the majority of markets, indicating that agricultural digitalization is still in its early stages, but with a lot of potential.

Connectivity concerns, economic limits, and a general distrust about AI-generated forecasts are among the barriers to digital technology adoption. However, external constraints such as climate change, inflation, supply chain inefficiencies, restrictions, and the overall need for increased productivity act as accelerators for farmers to use technology.

Farmers are becoming increasingly encouraged to employ technology in their job as they see the practical benefits it provides to their farm companies and overcome economic obstacles.

Farm Management Solutions for Sustainability and Profitability

FMS is a critical step in technology implementation in farms since it serves as the foundation for all other digital solutions. It offers a consolidated platform for data gathering, analysis, and management, allowing farmers to make informed decisions based on real-time information about agricultural operations. Without it, managing many other digital solutions can be difficult and may not provide the desired results.

The impact of FMS on sustainability is not purely theoretical; it is tangible. AGRIVI customers globally report considerable savings in resource use and environmental effect.

FMS, specifically, helps farmers optimize resource utilization, reduce environmental impact, and calculate precise quantities of inputs such as fertilizers and water using real-time data and analytics.

FMS allows farmers to make informed decisions about planting, irrigation, and pest control. It also analyzes environmental parameters such as soil health, weather, and crop performance, allowing farmers to change their methods in real time, resulting in higher yields and crop resilience. It also helps farmers implement sustainable techniques like crop rotation and decreased tillage, which improve soil health and water retention while reducing environmental harm.

Sustainable agriculture, on the other hand, would be fiction rather than reality unless crops were productive and profitable. Thus, supporting sustainability in agricultural techniques must be followed by assisting farmers in overcoming financial obstacles and ensuring profit and livelihood.

Implementing AGRIVI farm management software allows for total cost reductions of 10 to 20 percent, as well as a 15% improvement in profitability. Furthermore, if the AGRIVI farm management platform is properly utilized to ensure high yield and crop quality, as well as to optimize expenses, farms can achieve a good return on investment, with 8-12 USD returned for every 1 USD spent in the AGRIVI platform.

The End of the "Business as Usual" Farming

Sustainable agriculture is not an option, but a need. As the globe battles with food security and environmental difficulties, using technology such as farm management software offers hope. It enables farmers to make data-driven decisions that benefit both their finances and the environment.

There is still a lot of space for improvement in terms of assisting farmers in overcoming problems, increasing farm efficiency while preserving profitability, and making essential changes toward more sustainable agriculture.

Being at the vanguard of digital transformation in agriculture for a decade, we at AGRIVI understand that the route is not easy, but we see positive results all around the world. Farm management software is not just a tool; it is a daily assistance from professionals and statistics that motivate farmers.
