  •  What’s the future of Agriculture?

Prediction #1: Farms connected as a network, using IoT.

Prediction #2: Historical data analysis (using artificial intelligence) being used to discover trends in different areas of the operations. For example, to decide what seed variety you are going to use in the next crop based on historical statistical data generated by a software.

Prediction #3: More automation in general, such as machines with robot parts, and more intelligent and independent machinery.

Prediction #4: Much more machine instrumentation, we are going to see a lot more sensors connected to tractors and other machines.

  •  What are the top 3 technological trends you’re seeing in Agriculture?

Trend #1: Much less labor on the field.

Trend #2: Automated decision processes; the software tells you what to do next, the same way Waze decides the path you should take, for example.

Trend #3: Combination of different pest monitoring and control strategies. Currently, spraying is the main strategy farmers use. The future is combining spraying, biological control, and tolerant varieties, for example.

  •  Why is the AgTech industry ripe for disruption?

LT: This is agriculture’s fourth disruption. The first was using animals to plow the land, then inserting machinery into the operation, the third was biotechnology taking over agriculture, and only now we’ve come to data revolution.
