The Future of HR in Agriculture in the New Digital Age

Overview

As humans’ stride into the digital age, they face various changes that will affect how they live, so will farming – and general agricultural practices – change too.

The future is uncertain but very exciting; thus, farmers need to start adopting technology-aided techniques if they want to stay productive and competitive in the market.

Whether for a small-scale farmer or big agro-allied enterprise involved in the whole agro-value-chain, current and future technological innovations are poised to change how the agriculture business is done.

For instance, through using artificial intelligence and machine learning to extract data gathered via satellite and drone images, one can get real-time data about pests and disease protection measures. New tech like mobile apps, wearable devices and automated sensors can quickly and effortlessly gather data which can, in turn, help banks and insurers to assess the risks associated with agricultural business proposals and ventures.

The digital revolution is having an unprecedented impact on the future of agriculture around the world, and South Africa is no exception. Developments in robotics, social media, AI, pesticide-spraying and disease-monitoring drones, as well as virtual reality, among other innovations, are rapidly changing the demands and inputs present and future agricultural processes require.

To stay in the loop and profit from the impending changes, professionals in the agriculture sector need to find new ways to manage talent – attract, develop, reward and retain, as well as to inspire passion, innovation, entrepreneurial spirit and excellence.
