Farming may be one of the oldest professions of all, but it’s seen a lot of changes in its long history. At Redblade Mowers, the best Solis tractor dealer in Lancashire, we know a thing or two about innovation in agriculture. We take a look at some of the future farming techniques that will change agriculture again.
Agriculture from the air
One of the most impressive innovations in agriculture in recent years is the use of aircraft and drones to intelligently monitor plants and use precise fertilisation strategies which can significantly boost yields. As artificial intelligence is introduced to these models, we could see big changes in how farmers maintain their crops or even see machines do this for them.
In the past, if you wanted to do a lot of jobs on the farm, you needed to invest in a wide range of different vehicles, machines and tools. This could be costly to maintain and upgrade as well as involving a lot of wasted time. However, recent innovations in agricultural equipment have seen a shift towards the multi-purpose vehicle. Solis tractors are the leading compact tractor manufacturer and their range really shows just how much one vehicle can pack in now. With a variety of attachments available, these adaptable tractors can be used for digging, hoeing, mowing and a range of other agricultural tasks.
We have seen a huge rise in the number of people interested in small-scale farming, as the environmental impact of factory farming becomes more apparent. It’s also meant a shift away from industrial-scale agriculture, with people opting for smaller, more functional farming vehicles, like a Solis tractor. The growth in small-scale farming could be a sign of things to come, as consumers become more aware of where their food comes from and how it is produced.
Farmers, like everyone, are being asked to consider the environmental impact of their methods which has led to a whole host of innovations. These technologies range from efficient farming vehicles to hydroponics systems to processes which reduce agricultural waste. Eco-friendly farming can be a much less intensive type of agriculture, which promotes biodiversity, locally grown produce and natural farming methods, protecting the planet for the future.
