The consumer demand for fresh and healthy food has increased drastically. On the other hand, the farmers are looking for higher profitability and direct connection with the consumers. This is why software has become the livelihood of the business economy. And that started when the pandemic disrupted the traditional way of consumer-dealership relationships. The world had to shift to digital transformation, and the agriculture industry couldn’t be left out.
However beneficial it was for several industries, agriculture was one industry where learning and understanding were needed to adapt to the digital twin. And traditional software development wouldn’t cut it for farmers or land owners. There had to be a smart solution that could be adopted within months for a continued profit.
One of the solutions was low code. According to Forrester, low-code development traces back to a 2011 report on a new productivity platform for custom applications. Although the boom of the new age development happened in recent years. And it only accelerated during the pandemic when people realised how critical digital communication was when the world was on lockdown.
But how can the Agriculture sector benefit from this when their domain is far from coding?
Low-code: combining convenience and technology to enable smart farming
There isn’t a direct link between farmers to consumers. There has always been a middleman who addresses its respective wages and leaves very little for the farmers. It is difficult for the farmers to track the freshness of the goods and their availability. For instances like these, low code becomes the connecting tissue between all the challenges.
