This is an interesting article about how AI is improving farming and the nutritional value of crops.  

"AI gives UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) researchers a better chance at creating a great Florida-grown blackberry or olive"

Benefits of using AI in farming research: 

1. "AI can analyze the vast amount of data collected by the sensors to determine if each plant is getting too much or too little water and nutrients — something that would be extraordinarily challenging without this technology. Tapping into the UF initiative will accelerate work like this that’s already going on at UF/IFAS."

2. "we have the scientific teams to use AI to attack complex problems. We can pair engineers with entomologists, agronomists, horticulturalists, plant pathologists, soil scientists and more to take a 360-degree look at removing obstacles to growing anything in Florida with reduced impact on the environment."

3. UF already has a competitive university plant breeding team. [which further advances the effectivenes of the AI tools and effectiveness]

4. "our innovations spread more rapidly because we have an expert corps dedicated to delivering science to farmers"
