For more than a decade the topic of digitalization has been very present in agriculture. This was achieved, among other things, through a large number of government-supported development projects that were carried out at universities, research institutes and in small and large companies in the agricultural sector.
Nevertheless, practical agriculture nowadays is far from using all the tools of digitalization, many practical farms are still undecided on whether and which digital technology should be introduced on the farm.
The question arises as to what status digitalization currently has in politics, in order to determine how the introduction of digitalization in the agricultural sector can be accelerated. What is politics doing to advance knowledge, infrastructure and further development and thus put agricultural digitalization into practice?
To get answers to these questions, representatives from politics and administration were interviewed.
