in the next 35 years we’ll have to
produce more food than all of the world’s production combined over the
last 2,000 so what will the farms of the future look like
well they’re unlikely to look like this just yet but many of the sci-fi looking
elements are already on the way take automation these concept robots are
being designed to autonomously scout sense and treat invasive pests and
pathogens with micro amounts of herbicide or pesticide vastly reducing
the costs and environmental impacts associated with these chemicals this is
known as precision farming and see here how the leaders on this tractor can
detect the presence of weed to only treat affected areas and this is the
Lady Bird rover a working solar-powered prototype that conducts autonomous
farmer surveillance mapping and weed detection drones are also tipped to play
a big role in the farms of the future like this octocopter at Rockhamstead
research this BBSRC funded demonstrated technology could help the farmers of the
future measure growth and biomass and detect stresses to crops from pathogens
or lacks of nutrients or water other researchers are already using them for
surveillance sowing seeds and even to find or herd farm animals as you can see
here vehicles like these utilize the latest advanced sensors and the farms of
the future will be packed with them multi and hyperspectral cameras for
example can see problems that the human eye just can’t and one 24 hours a day
feeding data back to shared cloud services for analysis and action and it
doesn’t have to cost a fortune even now a lot of this data can be gathered
calculated or uploaded by smartphone upgrades and apps meaning the benefits
can be cost effective and realized quickly in developing countries to
tomorrow’s global farmers will therefore be key users of the Internet of Things
where by vehicles and equipment can use GPS and Wi-Fi to talk to each other
connect with weather and pest forecasts as for the farm of themselves the future
farms might not all be on the ground but under instead or integrated with
factories businesses and harnessing local energies and opportunities the farmer of
the future will also make use of data from large-scale experiments such as the
BBSRC funded Northwick farm platform and the scanalizer then there is the
National Plant Phenomics Centre also funded by BBSRC to feed the planet in an
increasingly globalised food system and in the face of climate change in extreme
weather will need elements of all this amazing technology and more BBSRC
funding researchers are working with partners and collaborators across the
world to realize this vision Trees Woods Forests
