DE-5.5 :: Agricultural Technology

Also, modern technology (“precision farming“) can greatly contribute to the raising of efficiency of the processed nutritional and operation materials, while maintaining the high level of yields in connection with ecological points of reference. The long-term shortage of plant food requires a new thinking in the use of resources, especially in relation to phosphor and potassium. Research questions here are:
• What potentials are offered by remote sensing by satellite?
• What developments in the technology are required in agriculture? E.g. use of drones
• How can the shortage of plant food nutrients be addressed?
• What are the development perspectives for agricultural factories (hydroponic) and what effects do they have upon land use?
• How can organic farming contribute (reduction of fertilizer / raised ability of plants to take in nutrients) and how can organic farming accompany transdisciplinary research assistance?
