Abstract: By the year 2050, the world's population is expected to reach 9.8 billion, and 11.2 billion in 2100. Non-declining or levelling world population growth is the most significant hurdle to sustainable agriculture and food security. Today, about 1 billion people are chronically hungry, and this crisis is a result of inefficient food production and distribution system, and undeveloped agricultural land that is leaving room to grow food for the additional 2-3 billion people globally expected by 2050. This research offers to various practitioners, learners, and academicians' data from emergency literature on technological innovations to help overcome agricultural concerns for meeting a process improvement initiative.

Keywords: agro-technologies; artificial intelligence; farming; robots; agriculture; population increases; farming technologies; drones.
