2017 International Agricultural Show: digital agriculture in the spotlight

02/01/2017

Detecting weeds, measuring humidity levels and fertilizer requirements… Through the use of new technologies, farming is acquiring data to boost output while improving its environmental credentials and making life easier for farmers! Irstea invites you to discover the challenges, scientific advances and new services that digital agriculture can provide during the 9 days of the International Agricultural Show 2017. It promises to be a great outing for young and old alike! 

In order to meet the agricultural challenges of the future by improving and increasing production, farmers can count on research and young French Tech start-ups for support. Drones, smartphones, and sensors installed on farms represent multiple sources of different types of information that are transformed into usable data to improve agricultural productivity.

Measuring ground humidity levels, detecting weeds in real time, measuring the quality and quantity of grass for pasture, and calculating the energy consumption of farms are just some of the new services that agricultural big data is creating to help the industry become more economical, environmentally friendly and convenient for farmers. At the International Agricultural Show, Irstea is offering a family experience in its connected farm, from stable to greenhouse to large-scale crop fields. This will improve the public’s understanding of the advantages provided by digital technologies for all crops and all farm sizes.

Discover the connected farm

Take on the challenges facing connected farmers. As you go from the stable to the greenhouses and the fields, you will monitor the health of your livestock, check the state of your crops, and apply the correct amount of fertilizer and water to optimize production with the help of sensors, an equipped drone and a robot. Presenters and researchers will be on hand to help you, every day from 10am-5pm in Hall 4, Stand B4009.
