Haghighat, Krushynska, Kottapalli and Jayawardhana, take center stage in the Digiagro3 project for smart agricultural robots

12 March 2024

To find a better balance between nature and agriculture, the agricultural and horticultural sectors are on the verge of a transition to an ecofriendly circular agriculture. This includes preventing the dissipation of fertilizer, water, nutrients, and other resources. In combination with the current staff shortage, this transition calls for the deployment of robots.

The prototypes will be ready in 2027.
