Bhutan government plans to use technology to modernize agriculture sector

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 06 Feb 2023, 11:12 pm

Thimphu: The Bhutan government is trying to make serious efforts to modernize its agriculture sector with the help of technology.

This includes the implementation of new techniques, tools, and equipment aimed at improving the productivity and sustainability of the sector, reports The Bhutan Live.

One example of technology being used in the country’s agricultural sector is precision agriculture, which involves the use of advanced technologies such as drones and GPS to manage crops and soil health.

This method helps farmers make informed decisions about crop management, increasing efficiency and reducing waste, the news portal reported.

Another way technology is being used in agriculture is through the adoption of hydroponic farming.

This method involves growing crops in a controlled environment using nutrient-rich water instead of soil.

This technology helps local farmers grow crops more efficiently, reduces water usage, and provides year-round food security.
