Introduction

—Technology has assumed a major part in developing the agricultural production.  The development and spread of new technology is an important factor determining the future of agriculture. Modern farms and agricultural operations work far differently than those a few decades ago, primarily because of advancements in technology, including sensors,  machines, innovation  and technology.

—Today’s farming routinely utilizes advanced technologies such as robots, temperature and moisture sensors and flying pictures. Several systems-research tools relating to information technology have become available for fertilizer management and administration. With the introduction of geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS) and remote sensing (RS), agriculturists can now refine nutrient recommendation and water management models to the site-particular conditions of each field.

— Modern bio and nanotechnology  has the potential to speed up the development , enhance products and improve of crops and animals.

—  The majority of our water use  goes to farming, so reducing that amount will be critical as our population grows and climate change makes water supplies less predictable.

—Sustainable water administration in agriculture, can be achieved by adopting improvements in irrigation application, and using the new technologies in irrigation , soil and plant practices and reuse of treated wastewater.

—Decrease of pesticides in agriculture is   important to stop the decrease in biodiversity and to ensure a more resource efficient approach.

—This reduction can be accomplished by a combination of the introduction of advanced technology in conventional agriculture.
