Agritalk 2019 (April Edition) – The Importance of Industrial Revolution 4.0 in Agriculture

Technology is a pillar of the economy that many industries are relying on for maximum productivity. From above, you can see that technology plays an important role in industrial development and thus remain an important component in any industrial development. Nowadays, technology is an essential aspect of our lives.

We will look into some of the ways in which technology contributes to industrial development to see its relevance. The reasons why technology is relevant for industrial development are

1. Make Work Easier
The advancement of technology is making it possible for an industry to work faster than before. This means that employees in an industry get equipped technologically and perform their tasks much faster.
2. It Eases Current Challenges for Manufactures
The advancement of technology is responsible for easing current challenges for manufacturers. Currently, manufacturers can continue with their manufacturing processes without worrying about frequent breakdowns.
3. Communication
The faster communication processes that are possible with modern technology, everyone involved in a project or an industrial process can be updated on every stage or procedure, without actually being at the site.

For centuries, goods including food, clothing, houses and weaponry were manufactured by hand or with the help of work animals. Here is an overview of that evolution.
1. Industry 1.0
‘In the 1800s, water- and steam-powered machines were developed to aid workers. Business also grew from individual cottage owners taking care of their own.’
2. Industry 2.0
‘By the beginning of the 20th century, electricity became the primary source of power. Also, the development of a number of management programs that made it possible to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of manufacturing facilities.’
3. Industry 3.0
‘In the last few decades of the 20th century, the invention and manufacture of electronic devices, such as the transistor. This period also spawned the development of software systems to capitalize on the electronic hardware.’

The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, is an extension of what has currently existed, with the dawn of the modern variation arriving about 2010 in Germany. The concept Industry 4.0 is a “collective” term that brings together technologies and typical concepts of the “value chain”. Industry 4.0 connects machines, work, and systems in general through intelligent networks (as the Internet of things) created along the entire value chain, which can control themselves autonomously and each other.
