Save the Date! The 4th International VDI Conference on “Smart Farming 2020” will be held in Dusseldorf (Germany) from March 3rd to 4th, 2020. Supported by national and international experts, the conference brings together over 100 thought leaders in cutting edge agri-industry solutions. As an actor in the farming industry, you cannot get around “Smart Farming” and its implications for your business. Smart Farming is a buzzword for engineers in the agricultural fields.
