For farmers and the agriculture industries, Washington State University’s AgAID Institute showcased how AI can track and analyze factors influencing crop yields. Carbon Robotics also attended and showed how their LaserWeeder product can make crops healthier with precision weed control.
“When you think about all the AI applications in what I would call precision agriculture are just ways to drive efficiency and competitiveness for U.S. growers. This is critically important in a changing climate environment where agriculture is becoming more challenging. And something as important as water AI can help our farmers know exactly how much water to use on every single acre. So it’s very exciting to see the successes of those companies,” Sen. Cantwell said.
