Journeying through What the Tomorrow has in Store for Agriculture

DigiKey, a leading global commerce distributor, has officially launched the Season 3 of its Farm Different video series, which is going to be sponsored by Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) and Amphenol Industrial. According to certain reports, the stated season will have three episodes in total, each one geared towards providing a look into the future of farming to gauge, and at the same time, showcase what innovations will power the next generation of global food production. Furthermore, the series will cover how robotics and autonomous vehicles are coming to the farm, while simultaneously dedicating a fair amount of focus towards studying the integral data necessary to identify local strategies, maximize yield, and help farmers sustainably feed the planet. Talk about the planned episodes on a slightly deeper level, the first one, named Agriculture’s Tech Revolution,” will basically explore the way farms across the board are incorporating new technologies to transform their longstanding methodologies for planting, monitoring and harvesting crops. Apart from that, it will also shed some light upon today’s agricultural technology innovators; along with the latest solutions and the benefits they provide to facilitate farming operations of all sizes. Moving on to our second episode, this is where DigiKey’s series will dig into new forms of energy management, connectivity and electrification that are laying the groundwork for tomorrow’s farming solutions. Titled “Planting the Seeds of Future Farms,” the second episode will also reveal possible pathways for these innovations to use their capabilities and achieve more in the future. The third and final episode of this series, called “Exploring Intelligent Agriculture Solutions,” is designed to detail the latest advancements in everything from drones to autonomous tractors, crop monitoring and precision farming methods. Complimenting the same would be a lowdown on how every solution is improving efficiency, yields and sustainability in their own unique manner.

“With factors such as population growth and climate change, the future will require us to achieve much more with far less, and technology has a key role to play in precision agriculture,” said Tzeno Galchev, marketing director at ADI. “Our technology is helping enable efficiencies across the board. This includes smart edge applications like livestock management and tracking that use our ultra-low power technologies, all the way to automating, electrifying, and navigating the machinery that feeds the planet using our inertial measurement units, connectivity, and battery management solutions.”

Founded in 1972, DigiKey has today reached a point where it is a proven global leader and continuous innovator in the cutting-edge commerce distribution of electronic components and automation products. The company, which supports engineers, designers, builders, and procurement professionals, in using digital solutions, frictionless interactions, and tools to make their jobs more efficient, currently provides 15.3 million components from over 2,900 quality name-brand manufacturers.

“The agricultural community has never backed down when facing sustainability challenges,” said Josh Mickolio, manager of supplier business development at DigiKey. “Navigating reduced labor pools, unpredictable weather and rising costs threatens growth in production and the survivability of small and large farming operations alike. This season highlights the fertile future of smart farming, showcasing solutions that leverage the creativity, ingenuity and resilience this industry is known for.”
