AGRICOLTURA 4.0 quando l’innovazione è applicata all’agricoltura aumentando la qualità e risparmiando la natura
Di Girolamo Sara farm would like to propose several software and hardware innovations used in its farm.
The software and hardware innovations manage the agri-food chain process by using cloud platform and IOT technologies.
This platform collects and recovers data through these technologies and it can be easily displayed on computers and phone devices which permit users and farm machines to make quicker and more efficient decisions.
