The agricultural world is in a position to face today’s challenges in terms of climate change. Agriculture, in addition to adapting to changing climatic conditions, must help to contain and reduce environmental impacts, as it is one of the sources contributing to climate change.
Today agriculture has to cope with:
- reduction and efficiency of inputs used (fuels, seeds, plant protection products, fertilizers);
- reducing production costs;
- producing goods of high quality.
These reasons are pushing the agricultural sector towards a decisive modernisation. Through the integration between technologies for precision agriculture and internet, sensors and powerful computing systems, allowing the management and sharing of data between the subjects of the supply chain and the optimization of production processe, agriculture 4.0 is born.
