On September 21, the third webinar aimed at farmers, but beneficial to anyone interested in agriculture and its progress, was organized by the AgriFood Lithuania DIH. More than 120 participants joined the webinar “Farming in the Digital Age: What We Are Ready for Now?”.

Dmitry Radin, an independent expert on innovative technologies, presented the trends in the agrifood sector and identified digital technologies that are most likely to reach farmers in the near future. According to the expert, these are most likely to be smart agricultural machinery and information collection and monitoring technologies.

Rūta Masiulytė, product owner at GeoFace, reviewed the situation of farm digitalization both in Europe and in Lithuania and presented an information system created by Lithuanians aimed at helping farmers to improve their operations.

During his presentation, Marius Kazlauskas, a doctoral student at Agriculture Academy of Vytautas Magnus University, focused on technologies that promote more efficient fertilization and shared good practices that help develop more sustainable farming while maintaining or even increasing farm productivity.

Later, farmer Paulius Staliorius joined the speakers in the discussion moderated by Ramūnas Terleckas, the editor of Business Class. Together they discussed the upcoming innovations and answered questions received from the audience.
