  • Ahmad Mahmood Tishk International University, Business and Management Department, Sulaymaniyah





This research contributed to the literature of agriculture technology and to the agriculture sector overall. The research focuses on  Sulaymaniyah agricultural farms, taking the Sharazur and Sharbazher farms as a sample for evaluating the awareness and perception of human resources working in the industry. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 34 participants and most of them were aware of agriculture technology but unfortunately they don't use it. They find it as a necessity for more efficient and effective product but they don’t have access to the new technologies due to the factor that Iraq is a developing country and have not yet used technology sufficiently for agriculture purposes.
