Autonomous Mobile Machines in Digital Agriculture – The Next Level
In 2011, the European association of agricultural machinery and equipment producers (CEMA) defined the guiding principle for agricultural engineering as “Producing More with Less”, to address the needs for increasing output from farms as well as the demand for lowering inputs of fertilizers, plant protection chemicals, and fossil resources. To achieve this goal, a high level of automation and autonomous machines will be fundamental for future agriculture.

Hyperlocal weather forecast benefits the environment and the farmers
02 December 2021 - The agricultural production is dependent on many different resources, but weather conditions are the only factor influencing the crop development in every single moment (for а period of 5 to 9 months), from the seeding to harvesting.

Providing the opportunities of SAH project for the process of digitalization to support ongoing processes and approaches
19 November 2021 - Across Europe, a lot of activities and funding are on the way to accelerate digitalization. Drones, sensors, clouds and other innovations promise many new visions and opportunities. The introduction of digital technologies already contributes to producing more sustainable food, preventing emissions, improving animal welfare, promoting biodiversity and reducing workloads as well as keeping rural areas attractive. It is still a challenge to make the best possible use of these opportunities taking into account sustainable answers to data protection, data security and data sovereignty issues.
