Agricultural Expert Seminar: Digital Technologies in Plant Cultivation and for Phytosanitary Diagnosis

07. December 2022 - 08. December 2022, Online

The application of digital technologies and the extensive use of digital data has important impacts on agriculture, environmental conditions, and socio-economic systems worldwide. Sustainable actions and programs are required to secure benefits for societies and the environment and simultaneously to minimize risks. Stakeholders’ competencies in applying digital technologies at all stages of the value chain are an essential prerequisite, and they need to be supplied with sustainable and feasible plans for implementation.

OAV would like to invite you to the first expert seminar on Digital Technologies in Plant Cultivation and for Phytosanitary Diagnosis as part of the Business Scout Fund Project “Digital Transformation in Agriculture”. The aim of this two-day seminar is to get an introduction to the national strategies regarding digital transformation in agriculture in India, Indonesia and Germany, as well as in-depth insights and practical examples in application areas for pest control and diagnostic detection of crops in India and Indonesia. Please find the preliminary program here.

The project led by OAV – German Asia-Pacific Business Association in cooperation with Steinbeis Research gGmbH and financed by the Business Scouts for Development Programme on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), addresses stakeholders from universities, research institutes and the business community in agriculture from the African partner countries Morocco, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana and Cameroon and the Asian partner countries India and Indonesia, to transfer know-how and discuss feasible applications of digital technologies into the agricultural and food sector.
