     Even as agriculture remains a priority sector accounting for the livelihoods of around 58 per cent of the country's population, adoption of technology in the sector is at a transitory juncture and faces several challenges across the value chain, according to a report. Though agriculture in India is at a transitory juncture, with a focus on integration of technologies for better operations, the sector faces several challenges across the value chain, said a report by PwC and FICCI. 

     
    The report titled 'Redefining agriculture through artificial intelligence: Predicting the unpredictable' said that these challenges require disruptive interferences which can be provided by technological solutions. 
     
    The entire system needs to adapt to a holistic approach which can be built upon indigenous and traditional farming knowledge integrated with transformative smart farming practices, including adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools and techniques, it noted. 
     
    Adoption of AI technologies will pave the way for higher production with the optimum utilisation of available resources and facilitate predictive analysis, crop health management, enhance quality and traceability among others, it said.
