Abstract

Food production must be considerably increased to maintain the world population, which is expected to reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. As a result, agriculture must be modernised and expanded in order to considerably increase food productivity; otherwise, achieving the second United Nations Sustainable Development Goal, Zero Hunger, will be challenging. Furthermore, humans are confronted with issues such as depleting natural resources and lands, climate change, unpredictable weather, and the effects of coronavirus disease. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on agricultural food yield has made food security a major global concern. Thus, the purpose of this work is to investigate the possibility of improving existing agricultural practises through mechanisation, automation, and adaptation of advanced technologies from industries, particularly research works from the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute (MARDI) into the new era of Agricultural Revolution 4.0, which uses Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0) advanced technologies to reduce labour force dependency, production time, and increase productivity and food security.
