I spent many weekends there, sometimes helping to plant trees, but mostly wallowing in the mud along the lake and building boats that invariably failed to float.

In the time it will take you to read this sentence, nearly 100 packages will have left an Amazon warehouse.

To say that "all in one" digital retailers such as Amazon and Alibaba have reshaped how we shop – and the overall look and operations of the retail landscape – would be a severe understatement. In fact, some of you already may have had a visit from your delivery driver today!

Working Remotely on the Farm

How will agriculture keep the world fed in 2020 and beyond? For many farmers, the answer is automatic. The technology keeping farms productive this year is the same technology that has the power to make agriculture more sustainable for decades to come.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down nearly every border worldwide, which means many of the seasonal farmworkers who travel to plant and harvest much of the world’s crops are stuck in place. This is just one obstacle facing our food system this season, but its effects could be mitigated. To overcome this challenge, farmers are relying on one of agriculture’s most trusted resources—human ingenuity.

From planting to harvest, farmers are further investing in tools like automation, digital platforms, and other precision agriculture methods to keep food production moving.
