Developing digital technologies

Today, many farmers are already using digital technologies such as smartphones, tablets, in-field sensors, drones and satellites. These technologies provide a range of farming solutions such as remote measurement of soil conditions, better water management, and livestock and crop monitoring.

By analysing the data collected, farmers can for example gain insight into likely future crop patterns or animal health and welfare. This enables them to plan more effectively and be more efficient.

Digitisation can increase profitability, improve working conditions for farmers, and reduce the environmental impacts of agriculture.
