Going back the old days, life was pretty mundane and burdensome where everyday chores seemed hectic and consumed too much of a time before the emergence of technology. Now, the ease of access to medicine, education, transportation, commerce, industries etc. has led human life simplify due to the development of technology. In other words, the world is in the hands of technology that affects people throughout the world. Advanced technologies have brought ease and comfort in our lives with its greatest evolution. In today’s world mobile and web development has reach to a robust medium and has brought us online banking, smart cars, smart TVs, and the virtual reality in our hands.
So, why not in Agriculture particularly in Nepal? The agriculture sector which is a base of our country and the Nepalese economy, can make a remarkable technological revolution effectively accompanied by the advances in farming technologies. Over the centuries, farmers across the world has been able to adopt technology in their pursuit of greater yields, quality and quantity assurance and the belief that “the more the better” has come to govern farming. An interesting finding and research led by the robotics engineer George Kantor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, quotes “an innovative upset by intelligent robots to change the financial model of farming and cultivation with a goal to achieve feasibility in productivity”. 
How can Nepal learn to revive agriculture in a modern way?
Engineers and researchers across the country believes in higher yield crop production significantly with more effective and sustainable shift to a robotic agricultural system. In nurseries and greenhouses which are committed to fruits and vegetables production, engineers are investigating robotization as an approach to decrease expenses and lift quality, e.g., gadgets to screen vegetables’ development, just as mechanical pickers, are right now being tried .
Nepal, could take this as a learning example, an opportunity and an approach in technology, robotics in the agriculture sector. Regardless of the development in the GDP, the financial base in the most recent many years has progressively weakened. Progress of the yearly inflow of remittance from USD 3.5 billion in 2010 to USD 8.1 billion in 2018  and an unsurpassed high of food import bill of over NPR 200 billion in 2018, clearly shows an absence of work and a tremendous food shortage in the nation. An essential to turn around this is to expand homegrown innovation.
Although in our country, where there has always been an issue in large imports of food essentials and its dependency in the neighboring countries, introducing these advanced technologies with detailed study and research could help Nepal in a longer run. It can create a spin-off in agricultural and food industries in terms of increasing yield in food production and at the same time keep the quantity and quality intact. If it succeeds, it can change our whole way of producing greens. This matter can wholly be comprehended by looking at it the other side, when a huge number of labor migrants get back, the farming area will be the single practical alternative left that can give businesses sustainability and shield our financial base from sliding further. Restoration of agrobusiness can be a manageable recuperating way in the context of COVID-19. Strategic and sensible advances taken to restore agriculture will help upgrade domestic production to turn away any potential food emergencies and crisis.
What practices to envision?
Like it’s said “learn and practice”, there are some excellent ideas of advances in technologies that accelerates the efficiency. The idea may or may not be challenging at first, but a detailed study and research to enumerate the practices, never goes to waste.
The secret of fresh fruits and vegetables lie within the process of harvesting, when it is all about maintaining the quality high while lessening the costs. If harvesting can be done with an optimum fruit development, at that point one can receive a financial reward. To take a best example of automatic harvesting, Netherlands is famed for its practice. An agricultural engineer, working on a sweet-pepper harvester, built a software program that rapidly and accurately distinguish the pepper and tries not to cut the primary stem of the plant, performing profound learning with the machine so it can decipher all the information from a quick color camera. 
Similarly, in the United Kingdom, a similar device “strawberry collector” has been built that can pick the natural product quicker than people. It depends on stereoscopic vision with RGB cameras to catch profundity, and its amazing calculations permits it to pick a strawberry at regular intervals. Individuals can pick 15 to 20 every seconds. moment.
Where timing is the critical harvesting, picking too soon is inefficient in light of the fact that you miss out development, however taking passing the picking time degrades shelf life. Manuela Zude-Sasse, a precision-farming engineer, at the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy in Potsdam, Germany, is joining sensors to apples to identify their size, and levels of its pigments. The information converted into an algorithm to figure formative stage, and when the picking time surpasses, cultivators are alarmed by a smart phone.
Preventing pests and enemies
The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) estimates a loss of 20-40% global crop yields due to pests and diseases, despite implying pesticides and fertilizers . There are intelligent gadgets introduced, e.g., “drone” that allows farmers to slice down the application of agrochemicals yet spotting crop pests prior to allow exact chemical applications. The drones mounted with RGB (red, green and blue light) or multispectral cameras attached at different zones will take off every morning, and distinguish a pest or a problem within the fields. These cameras would have the option to gather information from the undetectable pieces of the electromagnetic range that could permit cultivators and farmers to pinpoint a contagious fungal disease before it can be seen. These drones have been programmed with software that uses infrared images, which helps to navigate the patches of undesirable vegetation in fields. Pictures can likewise uncover expected causes, for example, nuisances or issues with water system. Widely across 50 nations, these drones have been circulated and used.
Agriculture can amplify economy and at this point of monetary downturn, agriculture sector requires comparable and reinforced consideration. The novel corona virus setting is an open door for us to rethink our needs and arrange our endeavors in fortifying the financial base, for which farming with improved advances should be made vigorous to remain against climate change and economic adversaries.
