The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law intends to improve and transform our nation’s aging critical infrastructure sectors. Technology serves to advance each of these sixteen (16) sectors into resilient, secure, and sustainable ecosystems. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security defines the Food and Agriculture Sector as one that is almost entirely under private ownership and is composed of an estimated 2.1 million farms, 935,000 restaurants, and more than 200,000 registered food manufacturing, processing, and storage facilities. Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) can enable agro-based systems to improve real-time harvesting, traceability, and monitoring of various important parameters such as soil moisture, weed detection, yield quantity, and crop quality. Digital twins, robots, and drones represent a sampling of key enablers. According to GlobeNewswire, the Smart Agriculture Technology market is anticipated to rise at a considerable rate during the forecast period, between 2022 and 2028. Tune in on August 31, 2022 when the ACT-IAC Smart IoT Working Group celebrates Mr. Kohlie Frantzen, an experienced, passionate, and thought leader spanning the oil and gas, renewables, hydroponics, and environment industry.
