How does technological progress aid the development of sustainable, environmentally-friendly agriculture?
CHIEF REVENUE OFFICER, CROPIN
“With Digital Agriculture, stakeholders can collect and analyze billions of data points – from production to distribution and consumption – and identify risks and opportunities to optimize processes. Meanwhile, smallholder farmers get increasingly better access to advisory services, better quality inputs, and agronomic information to improve productivity. So the digitalization of agriculture empowers these farmers to grow more with less by making smarter decisions and adapting to changing conditions. For example, where farmers had once sprayed fertilizer to the entire plot to boost yields, it now takes only a few touches on a screen to identify areas with poor crop health and provide nutrients selectively. The farmer thus effectively minimizes production costs and avoids polluting soil and water with excess chemicals.”
