Develop and deliver high-tech solutions to help farmers increase yields, reduce costs, and manage their operations more effectively. Such smart agricultural technologies that are used to improve the efficiency and productivity of farming operations include precision farming (using data and analytics to optimize farming operations), vertical farming (growing crops in vertically stacked layers using controlled environmental conditions, such as temperature, light, and nutrients, to optimize yields and minimize resource usage), livestock monitoring (using sensors and data analytics to monitor the health and wellbeing of livestock), and crop genetics (using genetic engineering to develop crops that are more resilient to pests and diseases, have improved yields, and can grow in challenging environmental conditions). The service can be marketed both in the domestic and export markets.
Improve crop yields and sustainability, create jobs, enhance resource efficiency and inclusive access to technology.
