Digitalizing agriculture and smartening the food production

By 2050, we need 60% more food to feed growing populations. Additionally, the climate change affects agriculture in several ways. The agriculture and food industry are facing a rapid change. HTA members have entered into a strategic collaboration with innovative players in this domain such as Agroscope—the Swiss federal government's agriculture, food, and environmental research organization – to better address to the needs of agriculture and livestock. With the state-of-the art technologies they aim to optimize smart agriculture and food production while taking care of the planet.

Areas of focus:

  • Livestock/vetmed health monitoring & localization
  • Plant health monitoring
  • Environmental sensors
  • Farm digitalization
