With the Agro Hi-Tech Competition Slovenia 2022, we are looking for good practices in the development and transfer and use of new technologies throughout the food chain from field to table. We are interested in advanced, innovative and, above all, useful solutions in all phases of agriculture and in food production, logistics and marketing. This year, we presented 19 different examples of good practice in three categories in the Finance newspaper. At the event, we will get to know who is the best among them.
