ART21 Stands with Ukraine Now and is Ready to Provide a Million-Dollar Support Package for Ukraine’s Reconstruction After the War
The agri-food innovation house ART21 takes care of the Ukrainian people who are now fighting for freedom of the whole Europe. A Lithuanian high-tech company is financially supporting Ukraine during the war and is ready to employ Ukrainians and cover their accommodation costs. In addition, after the war, the company will provide a package of strategically important high-tech services for over €1,000,000 to the objects of extreme importance to the Ukrainian economy. In this way, the company will contribute to the reconstruction and modernisation of the Ukrainian agricultural and food sector, as well as its supply chain.
How does 5G connectivity relate to better crop quality?
While a minority of the population, fearful of progress, are measuring foil helmets to protect themselves from 5G connectivity, innovators from around the world are developing technology for rural areas, outpacing the development of future communications infrastructure. Although we usually listen to debates on TV about the possibilities offered by 5G communication, such as driving autonomous cars, etc., we rarely think that this extremely high-speed Internet connection will significantly impact regional areas and the entire food value chain.
How will precision farming technologies help save forests?
The preservation of forests is becoming an acute problem in the world. Every summer, we hear about terrible wildfires raging worldwide from the coasts of California and Australia. The statistics show merciless numbers - during the last decade in North America, an average of about 18,000 fire accidents occurred annually (this year, the number is approaching 57 thousand), which destroyed almost three million hectares of forests and bushes in 2020. In Australia, 33 million hectares were burned.
The benefits of agrifood technologies: real or fictional? An international study will clarify.
"Agriculture is the most traditional and conservative sector in the world" is a phrase heard almost every day. However, this time the text will not be about the reasons for this. We are often convinced of what we cannot substantiate, right? So, why should we be surprised that the owner of a farm handed down from generation to generation does not want to change and invest in changes? After all, the advanced digital technologies offered to farmers are often developed by innovators who have yet to set foot on a real farm, which often leads to a reasonable gap in mutual trust.
How do technologies developed for the agrifood sector contribute to security?
Advanced technologies developed in one sector have long transcended the boundaries of their discipline and can often be applied on a much wider scale. What is particularly important in these uncertain and turbulent times, they can even significantly contribute to society's social, infrastructural and physical security.
