Title: Interesting AI project idea for increasing and managing the productivity of field crops: Artificial trees
Agricultural production of arable crops will necessarily call on the full range of available solutions: choice and rotation of crops, tillage, fertilizers, phytosanitary products, biological control of pests, varietal selection, irrigation...etc. Today, the arable crops sector uses more and more sophisticated equipment, with machines equipped with guidance devices, onboard electronic tools, and the operation of which it is necessary to know. So artificial intelligence (AI) in agriculture deserves serious consideration as an alternative. The call for (AI) in biotechnology and agricultural production is becoming important to better reconcile the increase in agricultural productivity, the preservation of major ecological balances, economic efficiency, and social acceptability. This study illustrates an interesting idea based on the establishment of artificial trees in arable land. These trees have roots attached with probes or microprobes to record the edaphic parameters and leaves as sensors or microsensors measuring the atmospheric parameters or using solar energy to power the computer integrated into the trunk. Several data were finally recorded such as temperature, pH, NPK levels, humidity, photoperiod…etc. The cumulative information is used to protect the crop or to prevent the next crop; the fertilizers are used in favorable conditions for fungal attacks and even for the choice of best-planted varieties if the crop is used without rotation.
