Scientists and farmers meet to discuss precision agriculture and livestock farming

April 30, 2003

Brussels, 29 Apr 2003

The fourth European conference on precision agriculture (ECPA) and the first European Conference on precision livestock farming (ECPLF) will take place from 16 to 18 June in Berlin, Germany.

The two conferences will gather together researchers of various disciplines, as well as farmers, consultants, software experts, public administration personnel and agribusiness representatives to discuss the latest technologies for precision agriculture and livestock farming components.

Topics for discussion include analysing spatial variability in soil, site, and plants; decision support tools; remote sensing; sensors and their various applications; social and economic impacts of precision farming; and data documentation for quality assurance.

It is expected that the conferences will help identify relevant scientific problems, future activities in research and development, standardisation requirements and suitable systems for technology transfer into practical farming.
