Researchers at the center are utilizing the latest technologies like drones and advanced AI systems to revolutionize the way we grow our food.

UF AI Center To Push Boundaries of Ag Research

AI will create a fourth agricultural revolution, achieving huge gains in farm productivity the way the introduction of tractors, synthetic fertilizers and genetics did in previous eras. The speed and success of that revolution depends on how well land-grant university innovators. The groundwork for the revolution has been laid by more than a century of UF/IFAS establishing credibility through its citrus science. Working with a UF/IFAS faculty member comes with assurance that growers’ data will be protected.
