Paradigm Shift: From ICT to "Smart Agriculture"

The Agricultural industry needs to reduce farm work burden soon due to labor shortage by aging society. How cultivation techniques will be passed down to the next generation of farmers is also a medium-term challenge. On the other hand, the use of ICT such as robot technology, remote sensing technology, cloud systems, etc., is rapidly progressing in other industries. This trend is also reaching the agricultural sector, and a “smart” scientific agriculture paradigm shift based on data is around the corner.
