Early Findings

Advanced Technology Use in Agriculture

  • In Indonesia, various technologies were integrated to optimize the use of resources in pineapple fields.
  • The country's horticulture industry embraced the "Agricultural 4.0 technology."
  • As one of the bastion of Industrial Revolution 4.0, technologies such as artificial intelligence can boost time efficiency and lower the occurrence of human error compared to previously applied ways.
  • Studies on AI application in the field led to the development of a web-powered AI application that can be deployed to do a real-time count of pineapple fruits on a vast plantation.
  • The accurate information from this technology is expected to result in an optimized way of using water, fertilizers, pest control substances, and packing materials in the pineapple plantations.
  • Augmented reality is now being explored to enable early plant disease diagnosis in all types of plants.
  • The technology is also being used to understand the pollination process to make it more optimal for all types of plants.
