Agricultural technology is application of techniques to control the growth and harvesting of animal and vegetable products.
Modern farms and agricultural operation work far differently than those a few decades ago. Primarily because of advancement in technology, including sensors, devise, machines and information technology. Today agriculture routinely uses sophisticated technology such as temperature and and GPS technology
Farmers no longer have to apply water, fertilizer, pesticides uniformly across entire fields. Instead, they can use minimum quantities required and target very specific areas or even treat individual plants differently. Benefits included
High crop productivity
Decrease in use of water, fertilizer and pesticides which turn keeps food price down.
Reduced impact on natural ecosystems
Less runoff of chemicals into river and groundwater
Increase work safety
Greenhouse Technology is the technique of providing favourable environment condition to the plants. Greenhouses are framed or inflated structures covered with transparent or translucent material large enough to grow crops under partial or fully controlled environmental conditions to get optimum growth and productivity.
Greenhouses is being used to overcome shortcomings in the growing qualities of a piece of land, such as a short growing season or poor light levels, and they can thereby improve food production in marginal environments and year round reliable crop production. Greenhouses are often used for growing flowers, vegetables, fruits, and transplants.
