Agricultural Expert Seminar: Use of Drones in Agriculture for SME Farmers

31. Januar 2023 - 01. Februar 2023, 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 programmes 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 second expert seminar on Use of Drones in Agriculture for Small and Medium Sized Farmers as part of the Business Scout Fund Project “Digital Transformation in Agriculture”. The focus of the seminar will be on the opportunities and challenges that drones offer especially to small and medium sized farmers. The first contribution is made by the University of Leipzig and will discuss how smallholders benefit from drone technology and its impact upon food security. Followed by further inputs from India and Indonesia from business and civil society. Please find the preliminary programme 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.
