FEMAC, the cluster of Agricultural Machinery in Catalonia, held on Thursday 25th September with the collaboration of Lleida’s Trade Fair a conference on « Farming the Future », within the program of the 60th Agricultural Fair of Sant Miquel’s activities . The aim of the conference was to present the technological challenges of the future for the Cluster, which goes through the development of new technologies and the application of intelligent systems in the agricultural machinery production.
The Cluster Manager, Enric Pedrós explained that while agricultural production must increase by 70% in the next 30 years, this will have to be managed with the same natural resources. To achieve this goal, in the future agriculture we will have to become more efficient and sustainable. It will be necessary to improve water management, reduce the consumption of fossil energy and apply robotics in agricultural machinery.
The session, organized in the Congress Hall of Fira de Lleida, consisted of three conferences: « Managing variability », by Joan Esteve, Agro Pixel; « Robotics and agriculture » with Carles Soler, of Nelmia Insight Robotics, and « Agricultural management in the cloud » with Ferran Gascon, of Agroptima.
