Farming & Agricultural Engineering

The future food supply of an ever growing humanity is one of the key issues of our time. At the same time, climate change and globalization are placing increasing demands on a climate friendly and at the same time competitive agriculture. Intelligent technologies help to make agricultural production along the entire process chain sustainable, resource-efficient and environmentally friendly. They hold enormous potential for gentle land management and livestock husbandry that encourages animal welfare. This includes the networking and automation of agricultural machinery and knowledge sources, as well as the utilization of specific agricultural data, which provide reliable information for optimal decision support.
