‘Agriverse’ makes the word a better place

Every night, about 828 million people go to bed hungry; severe food insecurity has increased significantly from 10.9 percent of the global population in 2020 to 11.7 percent in 2021. Yes, you heard me right. These are all from the latest data of WFP and FAO.

China, as a large agricultural country, has never stopped its commitment on innovation and technological breakthrough.

In recent years, China has made great efforts to promote the integration of artificial intelligence with the development of agriculture. For example, the artificial intelligence team produced an average of 6.86 kilograms of strawberries, or 196 percent more than the 2.32kg average for the team of traditional farmers, according to a strawberry-growing experiment conducted in December 2020.

Even so, ensuring food security is still a priority topic. If agriculture is combined with the Metaverse technology, which has a soaring popularity, let me name it Agriverse, how extraordinary would it be?

Challenges and opportunities are connected together closely! Imagine that every square feet of farmland on earth will be equipped with sensors, covering all aspects, and transmitting all kinds of data to the Metaverse control center. From soil quality to sowing, irrigation and harvesting, each step is monitored 24 hours to block the impact of all negative factors. Digital agriculture in the future will be more accurate, efficient and secure. In addition, it is not only diversified, but also interesting to operate, which will attract a large number of young talent to participate in, and inject new vitality into digital agriculture.

Clear waters and green mountains are as good as mountains of gold and silver. In the golden autumn, the crops are abundant, reflecting the smiling face, bearing the hope. Among fields, in orchards, in industrial parks ... On the vast land, fields are golden. There are charm in the air.

Technology makes the world a better place for you and for me and the entire human race. Its progress not only makes us rethink about human brain’s power extremities, but also makes the impossible possible. Where there is dream, there is hope. We live together on the same Earth Village together for a shared future.
