Agriculture is a vital pillar of Europe’s rural economies, providing jobs and supporting rural communities.
Many rural areas suffer from high levels of unemployment and lack vital infrastructure like high-speed internet and transport connections: the EU’s rural residents are up to twice as likely as city-dwellers to experience poverty or social exclusion.
Spain is home to almost one million agricultural and livestock businesses, covering 30 million hectares of land and employing some 750,000 people.
Rising demand for bigger yields and higher environmental protection has put pressure on the agricultural sector to “produce more with less”. Smart Farming or “farming 4.0.” could hold the key.
