Increasing world food consumption is expected to nearly double by 2050 (as per UN projections), increasing crop yields and improving the quality of produce is critical to feeding the world's growing population. To face this challenge, legislators and investors have been searching for a new environment that can seamlessly integrate robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Big Data with agriculture in order to achieve better outcomes. As a result, agritech has become a major driver of job openings in the industry.

Agritech, or the application of technology to farming, aquaculture, or gardening, is an important method for modernizing agriculture and growing yields while lowering costs. It can also aid in the resolution of socioeconomic issues such as a shortage of funding, the involvement of many middlemen, and insufficient market access. Several start-ups have used digital platforms to extend the sector's opportunities and skills.

Digitization is a term that refers to the process

As a consequence, now is a good time to learn about your job opportunities. Agritech has opened doors to precision production, traceability, farm mechanization/ automation, business linkages, agri-advisory, agro-tourism, and biotech, in addition to supply chain, farm administration, quality management, and financial services. Farm administrators, supply-chain consultants, and finance professionals are among the jobs available, as are digital analysts and app engineers.

Engineers, scholars, and agronomists working in agriculture will eventually be expected to have professional skills. Also conventional agriculture-based careers like farm management are seeing technical disruptions as a result of increasing industrialization. As a result, skills like digital transformation, data management, computer scientists, and software creation are in high demand.

Agriculture, which was once thought to be solely a rural occupation, is now primed for a more broad-based expansion, with innovations and industrialization combining to realize its full potential. As a result, now is an excellent time to get involved and invest in this burgeoning industry. There are interesting prospects for students, as well as the opportunity to turn a long-neglected area.

For business intelligence, data science, artificial intelligence (AI), and automation (technologists) to be applied in the farming sector, either agriculturists can study these innovations individually or work as a team (agriculturists and technologists) to help the sector develop.
