Smart Farming Tracker

Digitalization in agriculture is advancing forward. Precision Farming, Smart Farming, Digital Farming, Farming 4.0 – These are terms you hear about in media, politics and in the pub. If it is to apply fertilizer more precisely, have your tractors communicate with one another, or to monitor your pigs with your smartphone. There are many different techniques to optimize your crop cultivation and farming enterprise.

But: "Which technology, programs or procedures are used currently on farms?”

Kleffmann Group gives an overview on the actual status quo on German farms. The study results will be available by April 2018.
