Agricultural Technology

Japan has a shrinking agricultural sector, marked by workforce and skills shortages due to the lack of young people becoming farmers. The country is also facing growing concerns regarding water shortages.

In this perspective, the Japanese government and researchers are investing in agricultural technology as a way to increase productivity, improve quality and availability, lower costs, and use less resources. The solutions range from robot tractors and water management system operated by smartphones to indoor agriculture techniques.
