On the one hand, the needs of operators – reduce production costs, respect tight environmental restrictions and product quality –, and on the other the new technological solutions that help define a new format for agriculture in becoming: more targeted, attentive, modern and innovative. Made-to-measure for agricultural companies looking to the future, seeking correct management of environmental resources without overlooking income. VeronaFiere, inasmuch, dedicates to those who believe that agriculture is a developing economy with strong links with tradition but ma at the same time focused on the future, the first national exhibition dedicated to "Precision Agriculture". This initiative will characterise the 108th edition of Fieragricola, scheduled in Verona 7-10 February 2008.
As regards innovation and technology in agriculture, the stage will be taken by all the tools and solutions that help optimise crop production by rationalising costs and, at the same time, providing useful information to agricultural entrepreneurs, sub-contractors and enthusiasts. The spotlights, inasmuch, will focus on hand-held computers, satellite position receivers, auxiliary driving systems (servo-and semi-automatic types), on-board systems facilitating turns at the ends of fields, variable dosing actuators, on-board monitors with interactive touch-screens.
Major space will also be ensured for field data acquisition solutions, mapping systems for production and quality parameters installed on harvesters and shredders-loaders, tools for land sampling, water analysis and acquisition of climatic data, through to remote-detection systems.
Yet Precision Agriculture also means data analysis. Inasmuch, the latest software and the most advanced operator support systems will also be presented. Lastly, major attention will focus on traceability, with software and systems (PC-based and on-board agricultural vehicles) for data acquisition and management, forestry, fodder crops and animal-faming companies.
