Agritech is an amalgamation of agriculture and technology, referring to the application of innovative technological solutions to enhance agricultural practices, optimize crop yields, and improve the overall efficiency and sustainability of farming. This interdisciplinary field encompasses a wide array of cutting-edge technologies, such as precision farming, robotics, artificial intelligence, IoT (Internet of Things), remote sensing, and data analytics, which are employed to tackle the multifaceted challenges faced by the agricultural sector in the 21st century. By leveraging these advanced tools and techniques, agritech aims to revolutionize traditional farming methods, enabling farmers to make data-driven decisions, minimize resource consumption, reduce environmental impact, and adapt to the ever-changing climatic conditions. Moreover, agritech plays a crucial role in addressing global food security concerns, as it facilitates the development of resilient and productive agricultural systems capable of meeting the growing demand for food while ensuring the long-term viability of the planet's natural resources.
