With new technology and farming practices continuing to shape the future of ag, what could growing corn look like five years from now? The folks at Farm Journal outlined five ways growing could change by the end of 2027.
1. Prioritizing ROI over total yield, focusing more on returns rather than records.
2. More varieties of short-stature corn, some of which are already in the works at Bayer.
3. Widespread intercropping, which can help increase sunlight penetration and kernel depth.
4. Big data and artificial intelligence driving precision placement of weed management products.
5. The wave of smart sprayers – imagine a machine that can distinguish between crops, weeds and soil.
