Speakers at the summit also discuss the applications of these technologies, the effects of coronavirus on the agriculture industry, and the future of technology in agriculture. Key topics of discussion will include the use of UAVs, fintech, biometrics, Big Data, and digital marketing in agriculture.

As people grow more concerned with global environmental issues, discussing topics such as renewable energies and agricultural sustainability has become increasingly relevant. Presenters will explore advances in automated and electric vehicles, solar energy, and smart cities in detail, while providing an analysis of numerous human and environmental factors that influence the current and future state of agriculture.

Technology in agriculture is also moving towards computing and interfacing through the Internet to improve efficiency. These innovations continue to expand, along with their diverse applications. Summit speakers will share industry knowledge on advancements such as cloud technology, IoT, computer vision, AI, and server-less computing. Intelligent management systems, like RFID, will also be explored.

Agricultural companies across the world have been some of the hardest hit businesses from the natural disasters, and the pandemic. The market has had to adjust to changing consumer spending habits and decreased labor force as a result of social distancing protocols and closures. In order to best appeal to customers in this global pandemic, many businesses in the agriculture sector have been forced to change their selection and size of production. We hope to see you at this summit as we connect industry leaders and discuss the emerging technologies in agriculture.
