Run your arable farm smarter! The use of drones, big data and precision farming techniques are becoming a crucial part of arable farming. Learn more at our special event, organised by Future Farming during the upcoming VIV Europe and Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA), in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Speakers will touch on the use of big data to get the most out of arable crops, the project NPPL, which is a testbed for precision farming in the Netherlands and we delve deeper in smart ways to increase yield locally, and secure food globally.

Jan Brouwer
Agriculture and Food at Microsoft
The use of data and artificial intelligence in agriculture

Corné Kempenaar
