Internet of food and farm 2020

The Internet of Food & Farm 2020 (IoF2020) project has investigated and fostered the large-scale implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) in the European farming and food sector. Donau Soja and Soia Italia worked together in the Use Case 1.3: Soya Protein Management to increase technological innovation in the cultivation and processing of soybeans. From 2017 to 2020, smart farming technologies, such as decision support systems (DSS) and IoT sensors to optimise operations including irrigation, were applied and validated in real environments.
