Project partners, Engineering, have published a white paper on Smart Agriculture, Agriculture 4.0: the Digital Transformation of the agricultural sector and highlighted DEMETER as a use case which aims to drive the digitisation of agriculture in Europe, fostering scientific excellence, a competitive industry and providing answers to the challenges facing society.
Food, land, water, the environment, population growth represent challenges to which institutions and governments are required to respond. In the past, the set of measures and tools to support agriculture were not sufficient due to strong climatic variability and an inflated market, but today new technologies can help with sustainable solutions.
Smart Agriculture, Agriculture 4.0 and Digital Transformation enhance human action in agriculture and helps to reduce the amount of work, to carry out targeted interventions, to calibrate the use of chemicals on land and products, as well as guaranteeing and increasing the harvest. It also helps to manage all the processes enabling or supporting agricultural production, including the economic-administrative ones.
