Smart Farming 4.0
Future agriculture will use sophisticated technologies such as robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial images, and GPS technology. These advanced devices and precision agriculture and robotic systems will allow farms to be more profitable, efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly. As a government, the Agriculture 4.0 can play key part in solving the food scarcity issue. They need to take on a broader and more prominent role than their traditional functions in regulatory and facilitating.
Inspired by the notion, Indonesia is working fast by introducing “Smart farming 4.0” in September 2018. The initiative is led by the Indonesian Ministry of Villages and had a pilot project in Situbondo, East Java. Smart Farming 4.0 is a technology-based smart farming method. The technologies used include Agriculture Drone Sprayer (pesticide and liquid fertilizer drones), Drone Surveillance (drones for land mapping), and Soil and Weather Sensors (ground and weather sensors). The technology is invented by RiTx, a business unit of PT Mitra Sejahtera Membangun Bangsa (MSMB), a local agricultural technology company from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The application of the Smart Farming 4.0 method can be a solution for various problems in the Indonesian agricultural sector.
