    Since the development of industry and commerce flourish, agriculture is limited itself to the natural environment that related productivity enhances to be restricted. It results in the gradually loss of competitiveness and a lot of manpower outflow. Therefore, agriculture conducted the first reform to enhance the productivity and the introduction of machinery. Subsequently agriculture is faced trade liberalization and globalization of agricultural markets, the domestic agriculture without quality can’t compete in price. This cause the second reform in agricultural. By developing refinement and automation, it can enhance the overall global competitiveness of domestic agriculture.

Domestic traditional industries in agriculture that how to use the advantage further enhance the productivity and global competitiveness of agriculture for the future development trend. This can be regarded as the third reform in agriculture. Each reform to the domestic agricultural development has a considerable contribution which to serve the farmers for the development direction. I believe the future development the trends and responsibility that is benefit for farmers.

Keywords: Agricultural Mechanization and Automation, Big Data, Development Trend.
