When we talk about digitalisation, everyone is essentially referring to something slightly different. This is why discussions regarding the benefits not infrequently culminate in black-and-white statements.
Additive manufacturing is currently revolutionising mechanical and plant engineering, because 3D printing is increasingly being used wherever milling or casting were previously dominant.
The added value of precision farming has often been marginal for most farms. With the new specifications for fertilisation and plant protection, this could change.
Environmental protection is a central theme in the field of mineral fertiliser application. In addition to innovations that reduce nutrient losses and improve fertiliser distribution, soil conservation is the subject of development.
