PERSPECTIVES OF SUSTAINABLE USE OF TECHNOLOGIES
AN APPROACH TO AGRICULTURE 4.0
The sharp population has driven the demand for more food, fiber, water, and energy, which is associated with the increased need to use natural resources more sustainably. Agriculture 4.0 has become the agenda of public organizations worldwide since there is unanimous concern about feeding the population in the future. Studies are being conducted bringing the importance of Agriculture 4.0 and the different technologies that are being applied or under development, public policies, food security, and sustainability, the latter two as a watershed between "traditional agriculture" and Agriculture 4.0, linked to the internet of things, robots, sensors, blockchain, vertical agriculture, among others that, to be effective, need to be within everyone's reach. The results show that in the context of the insertion of technologies, they tend to meet the demand of medium and large producers, especially those who work with large-scale production, and this does not guarantee food security, nor does it ensure that 4.0 technologies will end world hunger, as the family producer does not have the same accessibility and knowledge to use them.
