Innovations boost agriculture

The agriculture industry originally relies on manual labor but integrations of technology into the sector have leveraged growth and development.

Some countries have started to roll out particular innovations in order to boost their agricultural systems.

Known for its landscapes of grasslands and mountains, China has been integrating technology into the development of their agriculture, particularly kiwi fruits.

The Asian giant is reclaiming the fruit as their own since the seeds originally came from them, and not in New Zealand as the misconception.

In Guizhou province, they have developed the Traceability Management System for Agricultural Products which gathers any kind of information relevant to the kiwi plantation’s environment, from its climate to soil pH levels. It also monitors if the kiwi fruit trees have diseases.

Detailed data on each fruit is collected and stored for analysis—such as its size, sugar content and sugar-acid ratio.
