Agriculture in the Fourth Industrial Revolution
Agriculture and industry are tied up and both are complementary to each other. The fourth industrial revolution is an advanced digital technology, it focuses an opportunity that could change the environment in the way human think and work. The farms and factories must implement smart technology to move very fast and it should be an innovative applications to embrace the fourth industrial revolution robustly for Bangladesh. The fourth industrial revolution concept combines artificial intelligence and big data that have achieved significant attention and popularity in precision farming like in monitoring, diagnosing insect pests, measuring soil moisture, diagnosing harvest time and monitoring crop health status and reducing complicated monitoring by human. Industry that extend precision agriculture using artificial intelligence with robotic technology in fourth industrial revolution and its application is embedding into smart observation that retrieve real-time information from field level data with minor human interference. The fourth industrial revolution builds a smart farming technology which brings advanced and sustainable changes for both production and agroprocessing. The fourth industrial revolution extends farms production and also increase their value. This paper reviewed the past effects of industrial revolution, discussed expanded benefit into smart farming and predicted impacts of fourth industrial revolution in Bangladesh agriculture.
