Farmers Parliament Digital Innovation Hub (FP DIH) aims to become a digital innovation support platform that helps farmers, agronomists, companies, R&D institutions and other organisations in Latvia to create added value through digital technology, better business and production processes. Latvian Agriculture DIH platform will become the first one stop shop service to digitize businesses in Latvia, and it enables the participants of the digital ecosystem to find solutions for their challenges by focusing on businesses.
Technology solutions in farming can reduce costs and improve profitability. Digital technologies allow decision-making tools with timely and accurate operational data, e. g. predicting and monitoring services to reduce pesticides, fertilizers or antibiotic use. Sustainability audit systems can provide opportunities to reduce the logistic costs based on real time information.
Union “Farmers Parliament” members – around 800 producing farmers of all regions of Latvia, involved in the different agriculture sectors (arable farming, cattle, dairy, vegetables, fruits etc.) Living Lab – the project addresses to collaboration for creation, prototyping, validating, and testing of new technologies, services, products, and systems in real-life contexts.
SmartAgro is an agriculture innovation and technology website. The main idea of SmartAgro is to inform and to encourage farmers and other interested parties to use new technologies, services, products and systems for a sustainable future in rural areas. By focusing on Regional Cluster, Digital Innovation Hubs, Living Labs and technology solutions under EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020 projects the website will provide the cutting edge ideas and solutions to facilitate innovations in rural areas. SmartAgro is maintained by a non-governmental organization – Farmers’ Parliament (FP).
