All eyes on me! Discussion & Roundtable. 11 am – 12.50 pm
Remote sensing technologies in combination with spatial analysis methods are today becoming safe, accurate and cost-effective aids in agriculture. Sensors on launcher systems such as satellites, drones or machines provide digital images and big data, which can be used to obtain knowledge about soil and plants in the field and region – faster and more objectively than with conventional inspections. Who benefits from this information? Are they equally useful for farmers, industry, agricultural policy and society and what are the benefits for these user groups? The ideal is that farmers can use sensor data to make more targeted field management decisions and automate and document processes such as fertilisation and crop protection.

Articles on the subject and interviews with our speakers:
Interview with Dr. Katrin Jakob
Expert for AgTech innovations with focus on satellite imaging technologies hosts the discussion
Satellite data combined with data from other sources has the potential to digitally close the process loop – according to Dr. Katrin Kohler. She’ll disclose more about this at Farm & Food 4.0, get a sneak preview in this interview.
Interview with Tobias Menne
What benefits can digital farming solutions deliver? Tobias Menne with xarvio reflects on this.
Digital solutions can help to produce more sustainably, they can also be adapted to individual conditions as they exist in different countries.
Interview with Jorge Fernandez
Pix4D, a young and already internationally known drone start-up, will participate in the session on Agronomic Data.
Drone technology offers great potential for agriculture. In our interview, Jorge Fernandez, Head of Product at Pix4D, presents the opportunities of drone mapping. Founded in 2011, the company now has offices in Shanghai, China, San Francisco, Berlin and Madrid.
Interview with Dr. Josef Bosch
FarmFacts is a partner of the upcoming Farm & Food conference in Berlin
We need to become more efficient, says Dr. Josef Bosch. If we want to achieve this, we have to develop new technology, and the satellite helps us tremendously: it can not only look at the planet, but almost into the fields. With the help of satellite data, we can now provide information about a soil’s fertilizer requirements, for example, or how we treat the plants, or how we secure the corresponding humus content in the soil. We can use this data to develop solutions with which farmers can demonstrably work sustainably and still develop economically.
Interview with Cropspot
How can digital solutions improve trade for farmers?
Cropspot is a start-up from Hamburg that uses digital technology to improve farmers’ marketing opportunities. Managing Director Tobias Fellmeier explains exactly how this works.
