Daily satellite imagery and sensors are now automatic and provide data 24/7, enabling the possibility of autonomous farming. As of present, the agricultural industry does not leverage data, leading to inefficient agricultural production. With autonomous farming, agricultural production can become sustainable through predictive farm-specific models that will help us attend to crop-needs at the right time.
