The event participants were also told about the production of the first industrial designs of digital weather stations at their own Sovtest ATE plant in Kursk, which allow you to track all meteorological changes at the monitoring site online and provide their owners with a personal updated forecast for the next few days. The use of weather stations can significantly increase the level of security in various areas of our lives and provide invaluable support to individual farmers and agro-industrial enterprises of the country in increasing the yield of various crops.
«The relevance of digitalization of agriculture in Russia is confirmed by the fact that today modern world food systems are entering a fundamentally new stage of technological development, which was called“ Agriculture 4.0 ”and is based on the implementation of such“ smart ”solutions as“ precision farming ”, robotics, “Internet of things” and other digital technologies,»
