"I have to admit that despite my agronomic studies (PhD in Agricultural Biotechnology), I was not familiar with the concept of digital farming and I was only recently introduced to smart farming. On the other hand, I had a pretty long experience in agricultural data - referring to data produced in an agricultural context or used for improving agriculture. I recently found myself working for Neuropublic, a Greek SME that is designing and developing smart farming services - and smart farming makes use of various types of data for providing informed advice to farmers. Bingo!"
In this post are described some of the benefits of smart farming, explaining why Greek farmers do not seem to be eager to adopt modern farming approaches; the author is Vassilis Protonotarios from Greece - you can read our interview with him on open data and agriculture here.
