Smart Farming is inevitable to meet future demand

Dear readers,

It's that time again: we have lots of exciting news and good reads about Smart Farming, Precision Agriculture and Agriculture 4.0 for you.

Smart Farming is more important than ever – and always will be. The UN projects that the world's population will reach 9.7 billion by 2050, which will cause global agricultural production to rise 69% between 2010 and 2050. Agriculture can only meet this demand with the help of smart farming.

Today's top story is about just that. How can we meet this future demand? Which technologies are suitable for which purpose? Enjoy your reading!

With best regards
