CHICAGO, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a research report Japan precision farming market by technology (leadership, remote sensing and variable rate technology), supply, application and region (Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Rest of the World) – global forecast to 2030” published by MarketsandMarkets, Japan Precision Farming Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2022 to 2030.

Presence of a significant number of agricultural OEMs and high percentage of agricultural mechanization in Japan

With a steady decline in the peasant population in Japan over the years, farmland is often abandoned as the younger population takes less interest in farming practices. Japan also has a lower food rate, which the government is trying to solve through agricultural automation. Japan is a technologically advanced country and has a high degree of agricultural mechanization.

The country has organizations such as Hokuriku National Agricultural Experimental Station, Hokkaido University, Kyoto University, Tokyo University of Agriculture & Technology, and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries that are engaged in agricultural research. These research organizations play a crucial role in the development of technologies related to agriculture. In the past 5–6 years there have been several notable developments related to soil sensors and nutrient mapping systems, variable rate applications (VRAs), grain yield monitoring, and field robotics.
