HT Apps is at the forefront of developing agritech solutions to improve the traceability processes of agri-food products with the use of the latest innovations in sensors and artificial intelligence.
Agritech solutions concern that part of technological innovation that aims to transform agriculture into agriculture 4.0, making the sector more competitive and sustainable, thus increasing the interest of entrepreneurs and researchers.
Agritech and agriculture 4.0
Agritech is the set of all those technological solutions aimed at innovating the agri-food sector and improving the food and agricultural industry, transforming it into smart agriculture.
In the development of the agri-food sector and smart agrifood, technology plays a fundamental role and offers interesting opportunities to entrepreneurs and researchers who work to create new technologies to improve the various stages of the production chain. Precisely because technological advancement changes food style and agricultural production and distribution, the future of agriculture will depend precisely on its ability to innovate.
Agritech and agrifood
The technological development of agrifood is very complex and it involves multiple processes and operations:
The agritech can increase the yield and the competitiveness of the agrifood sector, guaranteeing better quality and traceability. Moreover, thanks to automation, it can guarantee the optimisation of production, cultivation and breeding processes. The automation enables, in fact, to defend the quality of productions and reduce the management costs.
The innovation of agricultural enterprises, the so-called agriculture 4.0, concerns the following areas: precision agriculture, genomics, adaptation of agriculture to climate change, weeds and infection control, health, wellness, nutraceuticals, information technologies, big data and digitisation.
