The agriculture industry has faced several problems in recent years. The lack of risk management in the supply chain and the increasing labor shortage that existed before has only gotten worse with COVID-19. Bottlenecks and the lack of flexibility in the supply chain led to massive food waste in the early months of the pandemic. In response, the industry has turned to automation as a solution. Several new technology areas, such as greenhouse farming and IoT-powered automation equipment, are part of an automation tech wave taking hold of the agriculture industry. ASME interviews supply chain and automation experts on how the future of automation and robotics in the agriculture industry will help reduce labor and production costs, as well as mitigate risk.
