After mechanisation, the introduction of mineral fertiliser and the industrialisation of production processes, connectivity and data management are now set to unleash the next revolution in the history of farming: Smart Farming / Precision agriculture. It has now reached a point where it is not only possible to collect vast quantities of data but also to control different pieces of equipment or monitor individual animals, the Internet of Things. A growing number of farmers are starting to adopt digital technology and data-driven innovations.
The Smart Farming Conference is part of the two-day Agri Food Innovation Event (June 26-27, 2019) which includes four dedicated conferences Healthy Nutrition Conference, Vertical Farming Conference, 3D Food Printing Conference, Smart Farming Conference, Central expo, and a Networking Dinner.
The location, Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo, is in a region in which the agri-food business is one of the most productive, sustainable and profitable in the world; where food innovation is in the entrepreneurs’ DNA.
Focus topics of the conference are:
- Available technologies for Farming 4.0 – drones, sensors, Internet of Things, Robotics, Big Data, AI and more
