Two converging trends—industrial robotics and precision agriculture—could come together in a big way to revolutionize the way the world produces food. In fact, this is already happening. According to the IFR (Intl. Federation of Robotics), www.ifr.org, in its World Robotics Report 2016, the number of industrial robots deployed worldwide will increase to 2.6 million units by 2019. As industrial robotics increase efficiency through automation and precision on factory floors around the world, growers and producers are also leveraging IoT (Internet of Things)-enabled precision agriculture technology to optimize crop yields, maximize crop quality, and minimize the use of resources such as water and pesticides.
