With the rapid development of our country’s modernization, modern agricultural technology is increasingly introduced and applied in agriculture. These new technologies have played a great role in improving crop yield and ensuring food security, but at the same time, they have also brought some problems, such as excessive reliance on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, ecological pollution and so on. In order to realize the sustainable development of agriculture and protect the environment, the research and application of agricultural control system become particularly important.

The intelligent agricultural control system can monitor the agricultural scene in real time through temperature and humidity, light, carbon dioxide, soil temperature and humidity sensors.
Agriculture Controller System

Concepts and Functions of agricultural control systems

Agricultural control system refers to the system that monitors, regulates, controls and manages the whole process of agricultural production by using all kinds of modern equipment, technology and management means in order to achieve high quality, high efficiency and sustainable development of agricultural production. Its main functions include:

Improve crop yield and quality. Through rational use of natural resources and advanced technological means, scientific management of crops should be carried out to improve their yield and quality, increase farmers’ income and improve people’s living standards.

Ensure food security. China is one of the most populous countries in the world, and ensuring food supply is always the primary task of our agricultural development. Modern agricultural control technologies, such as integrated water and fertilizer technology, precision fertilization technology, green prevention and control technology, will be used to improve the quality and efficiency of grain production and ensure national food security.

We will improve the efficiency and quality of agricultural production. The use of automation equipment and information technology to achieve intelligent and automated agricultural production, improve production efficiency and quality, reduce production costs, increase farmers’ income.

Protect the ecological environment. Agricultural control system can not only improve the efficiency and quality of agricultural production, but also protect the ecological environment. Through rational use of natural resources and advanced technological means, reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and reduce the impact of agricultural production on the environment.

Problems existing in agricultural control system

Although the Agricultural control equipment system has played a great role in improving the efficiency and quality of agricultural production, there are also some problems:

Over-reliance on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Although fertilizers and pesticides can improve crop yield and quality, they also bring soil pollution, ecological damage and other problems. These problems become more and more serious with the development of modern agriculture and become one of the important factors restricting the sustainable development of agriculture.

The ecological environment is seriously polluted. In modern agricultural production, the extensive use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, agricultural films, etc., leads to serious pollution of soil, water and other environments, affecting ecological balance and human health.

High equipment cost, high maintenance cost. Large-scale use of advanced technology and equipment will bring high costs, and equipment maintenance costs are relatively high, not conducive to the acceptance and promotion of farmers.

It is difficult to manage. Modern agricultural production involves a lot of equipment and technology, management is difficult, need professional personnel to manage and maintain.
