WEBINAR: Data driven efficiency and sustainability in Precision Agriculture

DESCRIPTION

Precision farming makes use of the most advanced technologies to boost efficiency and reconcile productivity with sustainability in agriculture. Prepared by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development this informative session explores the impressive landscape of precision farming technologies and investigates the real opportunities precision farming can offer.

HIGHLIGHTS

“The main aim of precision farming is maximizing profitability of every land parcel. Just imagine that you can monitor the wellbeing of every single plant on your field… it is really possible with precision farming.”

Iurii Petruk, Head of the Board, AgTech Ukraine

“Precision farming technologies are already in use on 28% of Ukrainian cropland area. The potential to advance the technology further in Ukraine is on the area of 10 million hectares. This would be from 600 million to 1 billion USD of investments.”

Dmitry Prikhodko, Senior economist, FAO Investment Centre.

“With the help of precision technologies, for example auto piloting, variable chemical inputs, raw sensors on our sprayers and section control on sprayers and seeders we safe around 50$ per each hectare thanks to the right management of inputs. On the other side we increase our yields and also we earn 50$ more with the yields. Totally we have the positive effect from precision farming of more then 100 $ per hectare”

Ievgen Osypov, CEO of KERNEL

“You don’t need always premium solutions for every farm. You can solve many problems and increase your profitability by purchasing a service like fertilization prediction tool optimize your nitrogen fertilization. Our job is to highlight the value of precision farming and to make it attractive for people to invest. Ad it has to be simple. Any technology which is not simple will not be successful because it will be for the few”.

Andreas Huber, Europe, Middle East & Africa Integrated Field Sciences Leader at CORTEVA

“We partnered with SwissRe looking at how do we make more efficient their loss adjustment process. For 2 years, we collected 5 thousand samples per year in Ukraine and we were able to demonstrate that we could explain over 70% of variability in yields at field scale.
