Digitalization is not an option, it is prerequisite

Years back most farmers would have laughed if you told them that in the future they would have GPS driven tractors, automated milking robots and that the pigs were weighed with a camera. Today these products are reality and the agricultural industry becomes more complex which requires a high degree of digitalization and automatization.

facts of the digitalization

  • 9 billion people within 2050
  • Restricted resources require higher efficiency
  • Shortage of qualified labour

9 billion mouths to feed
The world population is expected to reach more than 9 billion within 2050. Even though it may seem to be far into the future, it will put pressure on the ability of the society to satisfy all mouths. With restricted resources such as soil and water, the agricultural sector must enhance the efficiency and do more with less to provide sufficient food and feed.

Complexity increases
Already today the tendency is that the farms are getting increasingly complex and count more and more production sites. To stay ahead, you need solutions that provide overview and streamline the productivity. Obviously, you cannot rely on systems only. You are still dependent on having qualified workers but as the size of production increases, you need to have farm management systems monitoring your production.

Your production in the cloud
During production time, a large amount of data is generated. Important data that puts you ahead and enables you to make the right decisions. With a FarmOnline system all data is transformed into clear graphs so you at all time are updated on both house and farm level which enables you to compare the efficiency of the batches and benchmark your production.

Member of Panel for Digital Growth in the Food Cluster
The Danish Agriculture & Food Council has put together an interdisciplinary panel encountering some of the key players in the Danish food cluster including SKOV. The panel is assigned to make a vision for the digital growth and to put forward tangible proposals on how to fulfill this vision. The panel presented their recommendations to Kristian Jensen, Minister of Financial Affairs and the Danish press during a gathering at SKOV’s headquarters.
