The agriculture sector is primarily unorganized.
Nations also benefit from deriving agricultural output that further adds to the nation’s economy.
Each nation has a different agricultural policy with other farming practices contributing to its GDP in various formats.
Farming activities are primarily performed manually with the human workforce.

Activities such as sowing, plowing, irrigation, and harvesting get performed using machines and equipment aided by farmers manually.
A decade ago, no farmer thought of using digitization and digitized business processes to drive agricultural activities, especially in underdeveloped countries.
Now are the days when almost every industry leverages digitized business practices to perform its operations.
Similarly, digitization is penetrating agricultural activities and putting new innovative ways to enhance the business performance of farming activities.
Governments across the geographies, especially the countries having an agricultural economy, provide farmers with subsidies, ensure favorable government policies, and allocate substantial budgets that directly or indirectly support farmers in one way or the other.
For instance, governments are taking initiatives to deploy high-quality satellite imagery that dramatically reduces the cost of monitoring several agricultural activities. Reducing costs and increasing efficiency remains the topmost concern for the government.
Along with monitoring compliance with environmental policies, digital technologies enable automation of agricultural processes, leading to expanded government services.
Governments also utilize digital technologies to support trade in agriculture and food products by connecting private sector suppliers to new markets, enabling new ways for governments to monitor and ensure compliance with standards.
Several business activities need digitization, and software such as ERP makes digitization relatively easier by streamlining several business processes.
Concepts like AgTech rule the agricultural market, which refers to digitized agrarian activities, embedding technology into farming practices.
ERP aids to tedious and cumbersome agro-business processes.
It sometimes becomes difficult for the farmers to know the agricultural business processes.
Hence, ERP helps track and manage those business activities, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.
Furthermore, any digitized business practice needs several digital tools and technologies for successful implementation and improved results.
The below-mentioned elements are a prerequisite to digitization in agriculture and leverage improved results. Also, educating the farmers in critical decision-making from the digitized business practices smooths the processes over the entire value chain.

1. Automation

Re-engineering labor-intensive processes using digital tools and technologies provide the digital form to the agro activities, thereby helping farmers drive improved results.

2. AgTech

Utilizing the capabilities of AgTech by monitoring the crops patterns, field criteria, and farm monitoring, farmers use improved results from farming activities.

3. Sensors Installations

The installation of sensors is a crucial step in digitizing agricultural activities.
Sensors track and monitor crop patterns, field criteria, and soil analysis that helps farmers make the most of given conditions and available resources.
At times, situations, such as weather forecasts, are not in farmers’ hands, and hence, in such cases, digitization helps maximize things that are at hand.
Fox ERP helps farmers with the digitization of agricultural activities with utmost efficiency.
It manages the entire agriculture business cycle with unique features that record and track the crop field’s locations, diseases of crops and plants, fertilizers, and the overall crop cycles.
Fox ERP’s Crop analysis feature analyses and reports the crops and fields across various criterions such as temperature, mineral levels, soil conditions and soil texture, water analysis, weather analysis, humidity, or precipitation.
Other crucial activities like maintaining the crop cycles keep details of sowing, irrigation, harvesting by creating custom cycles tracking and recording the diseases that might occur and initiating steps to combat them.
Fox ERP also records the fertilizers’ details and analyzes their content to help users make informed decisions to cultivate a good yield and achieve profits.
Its sales and purchase feature handles the end-to-end customer subscription and billing life cycle by enabling users to invoice the customers using requests and notifications via email/SMS reminders.
It avoids the need to chase the customers for payments.
Also, its “Billing and Pricing” feature records sales, purchase orders, and invoices using selling and purchase modules that further maximize crop yields.

Conclusion

The agriculture sector is shifting towards leveraging the benefits of digitization and digitized business processes.
Several labor-intensive activities also get streamlined using Fox ERP in the most efficient ways.
Devoid of better results due to uncontrollable weather conditions, Fox ERP provides farmers with better results, improved efficiency, and better tracking of their farming business.
