Spotlight on innovations in Open Data to enhance agriculture at Paris International Agribusiness Show

GODDAN FEAGGlobal Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) will be participating in a roundtable at the Paris International Agribusiness Show at Paris Nord Villepinte, France on 25 February 2019

The roundtable is expected to explore the realities of identifying and using the most promising technological innovations to address the real needs in the agricultural sector.

The Paris International Agribusiness Show, part of the SIMA exhibition, is an agricultural show and trade fair, aimed to demonstrate innovative methods to enable farmers to meet their requirements regardless of the size of farm or production method.

Around 1,800 companies from 42 different countries are expected to attend the roundtable.

André Laperrière, chief executive of GODAN, will be participating in the roundtable discussion on the topic of “Enhanced Agriculture: A Reality of Today and Tomorrow,” taking place on the second day of the event. Convening multiple industry leaders, the roundtable will facilitate discussion around the ever-changing international AgTech ecosystem and the challenges for businesses within the industry in remaining responsible, autonomous and innovative when developing farming processes.

GODAN seeks to support global efforts to make agricultural and nutrition relevant data available, accessible and easy to use for unrestricted use worldwide, by building high-level policy, public and private institutional support for open data.

The event will have a particular focus on precision agriculture and horticulture, milking and breeding equipment, soil tillage, renewable energy, handling-trailers-transport-, haulage-harvesting equipment, spare parts and components, rural and forestry areas, irrigation, plant protection, storage buildings crop-harvesting-storage-packaging beets and potatoes, fruits and vegetables.

Laperrière said, “The Paris International Agribusiness Show is arguably one of the most important agricultural shows held in the region. This is a great opportunity to discuss the importance of Open Data to the many businesses and innovators in the field and just how it can revolutionise the industry.”

The event is set to provide a useful platform in discussing the future of agriculture and what we can expect in the coming years, particularly as there is still much uncertainty amongst those within it. I look forward to meeting with fellow thinkers and leaders as we look at ways in which we can demonstrate the opportunities available to the industry and how Open Data in particular, can become instrumental in bringing about plenty of positive changes.
