Big Data, robotics, drones and sensors… You can read and hear everywhere about all the options a modern farmer has. There are a lot of options, but how much money will it make? Where can you learn about it? And especially, how can you put it into practice? Agrarians themselves have a lot of knowledge about (cultivated) products and applications. But this does not always make it clear how new technology and innovation can support them. New technologies have to be utilized faster to keep the agricultural sector competitive and make it more sustainable. At the test farm in Valthermond, the latest techniques regarding agricultural data collection are developed and tested. AVEBE, LTO and ‘Agenda voor de Veenkoloniën’ work in close collaboration with DroneHub GAE on specific drone applications for precision agriculture.
