Agro-Nordwest: experimental field for digital transformation in agricultural crop production

  • Duration:

The Experimental Field Agro-Nordwest focuses on the practical digital transformation, mainly in arable farming. Considering the aspects of economy, ecology, and integrating humans, problems of a heterogeneous digital infrastructure, of a variable network coverage, and of changes in the agricultural working environment get addressed.

Considering the value chain, the project will examine how digitalizing agricultural production processes will reconcile economic and ecological goals in agro-food production in the long run. The targeted result is a model of digitalized agriculture that is integrated into the economic and social ecosystems.
