Sensors, drones and satellites, the next step in agriculture.

Program | Previous Editions

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.

What new business models will be successful? Will new players disrupt the traditional farming landscape? How to deal with changes (from traditional farmer to smart farmer)? How to identify and develop innovative methods for sustainable food production?

Focus topics of the conference are:

  • Available technologies for Farming 4.0 – drones, sensors, Internet of Things, Multi-spectral imaging, Robotics, Big Data, AI and more
  • Precision agriculture
  • How Photonics can support farming
  • Plant and crop science for improved resource-use
  • Investment in R&D
  • New business models
  • Cross disciplinary themes
