2 Ways VR and AR technologies Help Protect Crops From Climate Change

Virtual and Augmented reality can be used to help us tackle the impact of climate change, and motivate as well as inspire us to solve the climate crisis. Research has shown that Virtual Reality can help individuals to engage and change their behaviors. Climate Change will damage crops in 2020 and the price of fruits and vegetables will increase; as a result, groceries will be more expensive for people in Canada. Here are some ways that Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality can help agriculture and protect crops from climate change.

Virtual Reality Training for Farmers and Staff

Bigger farms need more people to maintain the operations, and staff members can benefit from complex training with innovative VR and AR technologies. Virtual training re-creates a real work environment, which will help an individual to become knowledgeable about carrying out pre–planting, field processing or harvesting in extreme weather conditions.

Farmers need to invest in Augmented Reality for plant protection tools

Augmented reality will save money by providing plant protection tools. It will also aid awareness of pests and plant diseases in order to protect crops. Farmers can conduct a survey of the field using virtual and augmented reality to study the quality of the soil to plan for a better crop. Sensors have to be installed in the field to scan the crops. Farmers can hire an agronomist to study the weather, temperature, plant health, fertilizer and the date of harvesting using the AR feature in their tablet or smartphone.
