    This book explores the transformative potential of ML technologies in agriculture. It delves into specific applications, such as crop monitoring, disease detection, and livestock management, demonstrating how AI/ML can optimize resource management and improve overall productivity in farming practices.

    Sustainable Farming through Machine Learning: Enhancing Productivity and Efficiency provides an in-depth overview of AI and ML concepts relevant to the agricultural industry. It discusses the challenges faced by the agricultural sector and how AI/ML can address them. The authors highlight the use of AI/ML algorithms for plant disease and pest detection and examine the role of AI/ML in supply chain management and demand forecasting in agriculture. It includes an examination of the integration of AI/ML with agricultural robotics for automation and efficiency. They also cover applications in livestock management, including feed formulation and disease detection, they also explore the use of AI/ML for behavior analysis and welfare assessment in livestock. Finally, the authors also explore ethical and social implications of using such technologies.

    This book can be used as a textbook for students in agricultural engineering, precision farming, and smart agriculture. It can also be a reference book for practicing professionals in machine learning, and deep learning working on sustainable agriculture applications.
