Farmers’ perception of barriers that difficult the implementation of agriculture 4.0

Agriculture 4.0 can drive the growth of the agricultural production chain in emerging countries like Brazil, which is known as one of the primary food and meat producers worldwide, by implementing a range of advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, and Machine Learning. However, the development of agriculture 4.0 in Brazil is a complex process, and more needs to be known about the real barriers that impact its adoption among the actors of the agricultural production chain. There need to be more empirical studies about the perception of Brazilian farmers regarding the barriers that may compromise the successful path of agriculture 4.0.
