    Agricultural activities are rapidly moving away from manual labor work to digital and robotic solutions. The Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices continuously collect farm data and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms analyze them to offer valuable insights into soil and crop conditions, as well as improve overall operations and efficiency. Similarly, Integrated farm and dairy management solutions also offer significant benefits for disease control and high-quality produce. Aerial surveying and mapping using satellites and drones further improve land mapping and production choices. There are multiple opportunities for Agritech startups to create value from Farm to Market. This year NICF Incubated 30 Agritech Startups.
