German Experimental Fields on Digital Agriculture
In 2019 the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) launched the “Digital Experimental Fields” to support the digitization process in the German agriculture. The project will last for three years and has a total budget of 50 Million Euros.
14 different research projects at various locations in Germany have been initiated, dealing with all relevant topics of the agricultural industry. Most of these projects are carried out on private or public demonstration farms in cooperation with local universities or research institutions. The following videos provides a brief introduction into each research project.
