»Innovative technologies, particularly the use of digital technologies, offer several benefits in the field of agriculture. They increase productivity, product yield and animal productivity, optimise investments in processes, as well as decrease the workload which, in turn, increases profitability. Thus, they help farmers to work more precisely, efficiently and sustainably. They also help to improve the farmers’ working conditions and decrease the impact of agriculture on the environment. It is also important to emphasize that due to the use of digital technology, agriculture is more appealing to the younger generations.«
