Today, however, you can send a message through any social network or international messaging service and the response will be immediate. Communication skills are among the most effective. This is evident with the introduction of devices such as smartphones, which have hundreds of devices to exchange information over long distances.
The method used in agriculture helps the development of different activities. For example, there are plows, irrigation, and harvesting machines that reduce human labor and increase field yields. Artificial fertilizers are also an example of the impact of technology in this area. Thanks to these products, the condition of the soil improves.
Another indicator of technological success in agriculture is the availability of improved crops. They grow faster than conventional foods and can be engineered to develop resistance to certain diseases and pests.
