The Smart Farming Conference is part of the first global Innovative Food-Agri Event – a two-day event (June 28-29, 2017) that includes 4 dedicated conferences and an exhibition:

Scope: 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 has been an evolving reality for some time, but 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.

What new business models will be successful, and will new players disrupt the traditional farming landscape? How to deal with change (from traditional farmer to smart farmer)? How to identify and develop innovative methods for sustainable food production? The conference will answer this kind of questions.
