Agriculture Vs Technology



  • How technology differs from the Agriculture.?
    What are the things has to be checked in each sides?

    Well these are two conceptually different things. They aren't related. Technology has to do with things that people invent or create. Agriculture with the growing of food crops. They are not opposites, not the same thing, not really related or un-related.

    Technology is used in agriculture the same as in any other industry. Agriculture is actually a big driver of new technology.



  • Sorry these two things related to one another because if the technology did not improve we dont even know about hybrid plantation and other things

    That's not what related means. Technology is used in every aspect of life. But that doesn't mean that it is related. These are unrelated concepts. In the concept of a direct or an indirect relationship, agriculture and technology have none. They are different "kinds" of things.

    I don't think that is always so. Yes Agriculture is growing of foods, but there is a process and bit of design to optimize the process.

    Case in point - Look at AquaPonics. While it has been around for over a thousand years, it's only in the last dozen years that it has turn around and been turned 'high tech'

    While working for an auto manufacturor a few years ago, I looked at how to increase the efficiency of aquaponics... I spent a good bit of time doing research and theorizing how to optimize the process.

    Between notes and such it was a 2 foot thick stack of papers that I culmenated over a few month/ years.

    But that doesn't change that technology is one kind of thing and agriculture is another. Technology applies to all things equally. There is simply no direct or indirect relationship between these two things. They are conceptually different types of concepts.

    You can talk about technology in the context of agriculture. But that is different than talking about the opposing forcing of agriculture and technology - that is a conceptual mismatch.

    For example, you can paint a car blue, but transportation and color and two different concepts. You don't talk about the "relationship of transportation and color".
