AI in Agriculture

Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based technology has the potential to address a range of challenges throughout the agri-food system. It helps to improve seed quality, maximize crop yields, and reduce risks in agriculture by forecasting pest and disease outbreaks.

This web-talk will discuss new technologies, challenges, and way forward for AI technology in agriculture to achieve the SDG of Zero Hunger. Experts from India and Germany will focus on AI applications in crop and yield management, AI for resource efficiency, and the decision making of farmers.
