NAICC: Do we really need all this technology?
Many farmers now conduct farm trials before fully adopting new products on a widespread basis. This technology also allows consultants to easily test products on an independent basis and report results to their clients.
There is no doubt that agriculture has come a long way in the past 20 years. The advancements that have been made almost make your head spin. As I look forward to the advancements of the next 20 years, I suspect we have only begun to see the tip of the iceberg as to the improvements that will be made. The answer is absolutely yes that we need technology as we continue to feed a growing population. However, we will also need to rely on many old techniques in combination with new technologies in order to be successful and ensure agriculture remains sustainable.
