Computer Science in Agriculture

Cultivating food and crops through computer science technology

Industries like the rodeo, dairy, and industrial agriculture wouldn’t be possible without the advancements made possible by computer science. Many farmers are passionate about growing crops using sustainable methods, but it can be hard to figure out the best options due to our changing climate. That’s where the power of computer science technology comes in. Computer scientists and agricultural researchers approach the problems in the agricultural space mathematically, by thinking about each possible scenario and solution to ensure crops, dairy, and livestock are all being cared for and treated properly.

There is the potential for intelligent robots to change the economic model of farming so that it becomes feasible to be a small producer again.
